Jonas Gray next year


Recommended Posts

Besides the fumbleitis he had I saw a lot of great flashes during his carries all season and against Hawaii...I believe he will turn out to be our most dangerous rusher next season. He has vision, quickness, strength and speed. I can see it and it is something I do not see in any of our other backs. You heard it here first this kid will be our super star in the backfield. Allen has speed but doesnt seem to have the instinct nor the lateral ability behind the LOS, Hughes has the vision but is a whole different back and Aldridge is somewhere between getting lost and becoming a star I cant tell, hes hot and cold. Not that those guys arent good but I see J Gray as a potential super star... I see Jonas explode out of the backfield and hit that second gear while maintaining his ability to sense holes and defenders. I think he is the real deal, I cant wait for next season.

It would be a shame if Allen, Aldridge, and Hughes get jumped by Gray. I love Gray, but I want to see Allen and Hughes/Aldridge live up to their hype.

 

Allen has a problem seeing the "next" hit. He seems to see the first guy, but not the second or third. The result is that he often runs right into another guy.

 

Hughes lost his fire this year. I honestly think his knee was bothering him. He looks to have most of that fire back against hawaii, and I think HE is going to be our star next year.

 

Aldridge is a mystery. He "should" be our star right now. He has the whole package (very similar to what was said about Gray), but he is not putting it together. Maybe the knee issues stole his mojo. He does not appear to want to be a great back.

 

Gray looks good running the ball.....but I question his hands right now. He doesn't appear to be the pass catching threat any of the guys mentioned above are. He can be taught to catch better, and to hold on to the ball, but right now I would say he is still a work in progress and is really just a pure "running" back.

I think they will all compliment each other well and be utilized accordingly. I wouldn't go on a limb and say any one is better then the other.

Hey stranger!! Ditched us for awhile or just been sitting on the sidelines crying like the rest of us?

 

to be honest, i couldn't really take the negativity (much of it deserved, mind you!) surrounding the program. but it was just a chore and i needed a break from it. i watched the games on TiVo even to try and, i dunno, distance myself from it a little bit? if that makes any sense...anyway, xmas eve was a big deal for me and it renewed me, so to speak. so here i am contributing my usual whole lotta nothing to this board!

Either way...good to have you back. I've been brilliant while you were gone! :roll::roll::roll:

The RB situation will be incredibly cluttered next year...

 

Armando Allen

Robert Hughes

James Aldridge

Jonas Gray

Cierre Wood

Theo Riddick...

 

Personally I would like to see Hughes moved to Fullback on a full-time basis...He doesn't offer anything more than Aldridge, and we will need to replace Schwapp...Hughes could have 2 years at FB to prepare himself for the NFL, although he may also be willing to transfer to avoid the FB position

 

Riddick will be red-shirted and the four headed monster is still a mess as to who will get carries...

not really as much as you would think. wood & riddick will not get carries next year.

 

i think allen will be used like he was in the bowl game. i think aldridge will get short ydg spots and mix in other situations and hughes will be the premiere back with Gray also pushing for some carries.
