Yesterday was the blueprint. We saw what this team can do. What they can be. Now do more of it. Do it regularly.
Taylor is a beast. He needs to be getting 15 carries a game right now. Bare minimum. Make defenses stop him. Because when they commit to stopping him, you’re going to be able to hit those big throws we saw yesterday. Don’t pull Taylor and leave him on the sidelines for Hines or Mack for a drive. In fact, like I’ve said for weeks now, forget about Mack. That horse has left the barn. Great starter for us there for a couple years. It was a fun run, many thanks, best of luck in your future endeavors, but it’s over. It’s time to move on. If we signed him for depth then let him sit until depth is needed. We don’t need depth right now. We’re just working against ourselves taking Taylor off the field.
Hines has his uses. But use him with Taylor. Not instead of. Don’t just put him in and call the same plays that you would for Taylor. They’re different players, and they have different strengths. The majority of Hines snaps should come with Taylor also on the field because that’s going to open up even more opportunities for both of those guys. Someone on the defense is gonna have to account for each of them, so you’ve got one less set of eyes and hands on whoever does get ball. Hines can be used and create an advantage for us. If we start doing that in conjunction with those things we did well yesterday this is a much more potent offense.
I just hope we see more of it moving forward.
