Colts rb room projected at....

Glad we're 3, but how are the titans at 11? 

 

I think this might be the opposite of a point that @Chucklez made in the QB Room thread.  They said the QB Room is only as good as the starter.

 

For the RB Room, it really is about the committee as a unit.


So while Henry is one of the best starters in the NFL, the 1-2 combo of Mack and Taylor makes a better overall unit.

I hope so! It would be very nice to have a dominant running game.

Stats might not bear out dominant....but when they wanted to last year, they ran it down pretty much whoever's throat they wanted..... Aka "Run the damn ball"

Absolutely agree with this for the RB room.

If Taylor works out, we have definitely got a top 3 unit for the league. Taylor and Mack behind that O-line is a scary thing. It will be relentless for opposing defenses.

Yikes, that list is all sorts of crazy.

 

Yeah...this list is out there. NYJ with Bell/Gore at #16? NE and Michel/Harris/White at #14? I love Ekeler...but LAC at #8...with Justin Jackson and Joshua Kelley?

 

I almost stopped watching when I saw where MIN was ranked. And then she had DAL at #12 as well...they were #3 in the league in rushing (DVOA) last year. CAR and TEN were right after DAL...haha. If you have a top 5 NFL RB...you have a top 5 RB room...because that player is getting the vast majority of work. 

 

I like the hype though...and I am super stoked to see what Taylor can do. But right now I think the Colts have a top 10 RB duo...for it to be the #3 RB room...Taylor has to be a Zeke or Cook type player right away.

But when Henry accounts for 80% of the RB opportunity share for TEN (RB carries + targets)...he essentially is the RB unit. At that point...you just need a good backup/change of pace RB...and TEN added a very promising one...who was only drafted one round later than Taylor.  

 

Similarly with DAL...who drafted a very good backup RB in Pollard...ranking them this low makes no sense...and the fact they were top 5 rush offenses last year gives it even less credence.

 

I like these videos...but I wish there was some type of explanation to how a team like TEN or DAL isn't a top 5 RB unit...instead of just highlights.

    • Saw him play several times at Soldier Field and to this day no back ever looked so graceful as #40 when he was open. My friend still has his practice jersey. 6 TDs in one game.
    • That is why I have little faith in them.  Yea their O may improve as the season moves along. However, this D has the ability to make Trubisky look like Marino. I will never buy into as scheme as taking us deep into the playoffs or if we will even make the play offs. Im sorry, but the Jags game was a huge loss for me. Loss to a weaker divsion. Looked severely out coached on defence. This is suppose to b an easy defence for players to learn. The only problem it appears is that it is easy for the opposing offences to learn as well. Also the one thing I absolutely detest is this.  I hear about how hard Eberflus is on the players in grading them after each game. He throws out little  jabs eluding to a players lack of effort in practice and they need ro pick it up. Seriously what has he brought to this D as a coordinator?? I think he needs to be graded and after 2 years and 2 games....meh!!!
    • Somebody on Jets forum suggested they take Lawrence then trade Darnold to Colts for 3rd 
    • Honestly for me, the verdict is still out on both Reich and Flus. Giving Reich a pass given the QB situation last year, but his game plan week 1 was almost as bad as 2019 Miami. Giving Flus a pass for last year, but that ends this year after signing Buckner.    I'm still chuckling over all the folks overreacting about our defense the first two games. Definitely reason for optimism, but we've not played good OLs or good teams. The OLs the nest two weeks aren't anything special either. No reason for us not to be #1 in team D after the first four weeks given the Os we're playing.
