With him you are guaranteed two things:
1) 80 to 100 yards rushing, 20 to 40 yards receiving
2) ZERO touchdowns
Thye're starting to give it to Jacobs out at the 7 and 8 yardline now, so there's even less of a chance Tiki hits paydirt.
There are so many other backs out there that can get you more points....gotta move on I think.
The reason why they don't let him run in the TDs is to make sure he doesn't get hurt... or so that was the talk at the beginning of the season. In fact, Tiki was fine with it. I think, now that he is retiring, they should give Tiki the TD runs, and try to protect Jacobs. Jacobs is going to be their feature back next year (I assume). If Tiki gets hurt, then Jacobs becomes feature back for the rest of the year... gets him more experience. If things get much worse for the Giants, they might want to think about making Jacobs the feature back anyway. Then they get to see if Jacobs can handle the job... or if they need to pick up an RB for next year.
