The next time FFers bitch about Preseason (or Training Camp and OTAs) they might think back to this year with all the injuries, the slow starts by rookies, and some of the really sloppy play and rethink that position.
You say that but the rookie wrs are off to a great start. I think it’s more likely that this Rb class, while still good, was oversold originally

What does a group of exceptional WRs have to do with how fast RBs acclimate?

Isn’t the wr position traditionally harder to acclimate to in the nfl? Not sure how you can say no preseason has been bad for rbs but then have a large group of wrs doing perfectly fine, seemingly completely unaffected

Because why does it take so long to acclimate to the position? The receivers have had major opportunity. Claypool with Johnson knocked out, Jefferson when Minnesota traded Diggs, Jeudy with Sutton headed to IR, Lamb with two elite receivers drawing coverage, etc. The receivers landed into better positions to succeed than a Dobbins, Akers, Swift.

It’s pretty easy. There have been a ton of starting CBs hampered by injuries so far, and as stated above a lot of rookie WRs have been getting opportunities they normally might not, some of them are seeing ST level DBs in coverage, and this year’s bunch has the looks of an outstanding group.

RBs on the other hand have to face the entire D instead of beating one guy, and almost every player in the league will tell you how much more fast the game is than college. The rooks just need to get more time under their belts to let the game slow down.

Normally that would happen in OTAs, TC, and PS. Now they’re going right into the fire. Be patient, and take advantage of owners who aren’t. It’s just an odd year.

Another solid week. He continues to look great catching passes out of the backfield. At this point they just need to get him more touches. He’s their best skill position player.

I guess they have to use him more in the passing game because he looks so dreadful in the running game. 12 runs for 60 yards is now a moment for rejoicing for Taylor owners. Didn't actualyl watch the tape today but if it was anything like the first 5 weeks, then it will full of him running into his own offensive lineup, and cutting into defenders rather than away from them.

Not one of the best takes. JT has looked good, especially the last 2-3 weeks. He's their best offensive player and there really is no debate.

Isn't 12 for 60 like 5 yards a carry...? "this guy blows!" :lol:

Some terrible process there from the trader nation... I like how he knows that this guy is Trent Richardson the 2nd after a full four games of data.

With no offseason.

Behind a really good offensive line.

Whilst getting all the carries he can handle.

And with an athletic and college production pedigree in the 99.9% percentile.
