He doesn't have breakaway speed either. Never was a good receiver.Doesn't run over tacklers. What is he good for? It's time to trade him. Sure, there have been so many issues, namely bad blocking and the retirement of Mack Strong. Still, it's clear to me Shaun has no future here.
Exactly, and as we saw the other night, the main run that worked best for us is the DRAW, which doesnt require a fullback(which alexander has to have) and requires very elusive and quick speed(alexander does not have anymore) which Morris has to make that draw play work.
SF is bad, so we will see this week against a much better D how good Morris actually does, to see if it was a 1 week fluke or if he really does fit this new system for us.
