Re: What's reduced carries have to do with it?

July 21, 2021 07:45AM
Sure, he had reduced carries but that has nothing to do with the erroneous statement that he's always hurt or that 600 yards is bad. Anyway, your facts are still off.

The 3 carries and 6 yards was the 1st game of the season so that doesn't fit the 'as the season went on he fell off' narrative.

He did have 3 games in November/December with very few carries but I don't think there is anything remarkable about having few carries when he was being displaced by Akers. (in one of those 3 carry games, he had 49 yards, 1 TD rushing and 2 recs, 25 yards, and 1 TD receiving. Pretty effective right?) He wasn't missing games and he wasn't not getting carries because he was hurt. That's factually inaccurate to say so. He was replaced.

He had nearly 500 yards at the midpoint of the season while splitting duties with Akers. That's not bad.

I'll say again, facts are important. And your narratives of him always being hurt and painting 600 yards as somehow subpar are both factually inaccurate.

  We learned when Gurley was hurt - Rams need a rusher to make play action work

  Does Stafford need play action as much as Goff did?
