Wow...how would you be if/when we have another injury.....

July 20, 2021 09:13AM
a death blow? really...a death blow? IMO you need to put this in a real perspective....Cam was being penciled in the position because of how he finished up last season....many were foreshadowing his emergence at the position.....a foreshadowing and the glimmer he showed last season IMO is in no way was going to be a for sure deal.....It's not like we lost Derrick Henry....

To say we have nothing behind him is just as equally out of perspective as well. IMO we have a group of backs who just like Cam, before he showed his glimmer are in that same spot now. They all offer ability, they will IMO be running a rotational grouping, unless someone blows up unexpectedly....Bring in a vet who can pick up the plan quickly enough to suffice through the year.

These are not scrubs behind him, to be scrubs they would have had to already been seen enough on the field and failed miserably....that has not happened.

Missing Cam is a bad deal all around, but a death blow....just can't see it that way by a long shot.
