He IS better. Rams think so too. Find me quotations from McVay raving about Henderson....

McVay could be wrong. You've spent the last 6 months, at every turn, criticizing, questioning, or bringing up the possibility that McVay has made a mistake of some type. You have repeatedly noted that he is not infallible.

McVay's raving does nothing for me. The bottom line for me, as I've stated, is results on the field. I repeat: so far results, numbers, or metrics don't confirm that Akers is better. An argument could be made that they in fact reflect the opposite.

Let's revisit a year or two down the line when it should be more apparent who's right on this.

He's not infallible. Which also--various people's over-reactions aside--doesn't mean he's always wrong. Either way I would say that the combination of a head coach, other offensive coaches, the RB coach, and the personnel staff who drafted him ought to know a thing or two about their RB.

And in terms of this "criticizing at every turn" mantra--really, c'mon. Others have had the same criticisms I have but you just never respond to them. I think you've over counted me responding to a lot of (and never all of) pile ons from people who were overreacting to some criticisms I did have. At one point that accounted for the volume of my posts. I would say something, think okay I put my little vote in, and then come back and see these wildly proliferating "how dare you" posts. I never get the same kind of response when saying positive things (Akers was a good pick, Stafford is a good qb, Rams do have a top offensive mind though with some growing pain type flaws in there, their OL is likely going to be solid in 2021, Rams have an unbelievably good record acquring DBs, and so on).

McVay is raving about Akers because of the promise he shows. He is positive about Henderson but he's not raving. That means the guy who would have decided who gets the carries if they were both still here had a preference. I wouldn't be so quick to decide that's based on nothing.

I would also say that it's evident from just watching that while they're all good backs, Akers is a step down from pre-knee Gurley and a step up from Henderson, and all 3 are a step up from Brown, and Brown was a reliable and tough role back.

You have to be able see talent on the field. Seeing it has to be a part of good assessment.
