There's two games left.  They are well into the stretch and he's still not getting much of a look.

Also, I don't think Denard makes it to season two.  He has 19 carries and three fumbles on the season.  That's awful no matter how fast you are.  Love the dude, but I don't think he's cut out for the NFL.

Is it to slam Denard Robinson as overrated, who represented Michigan as well as any player and played a different position?

Is it to slam Fred Jackson for not playing the correct player at tailback?

Hoke, for not convincing Cox to stay for his 5th year?

Cox, who seems like a great kid,  for underachieving while at UofM?

I just don't see the point of this post.  You should know that as a coach, players who have been amazing college players, don't alwys pan out in the NFL, and players that didn't have outstanding college careers, turn out to be gems in the NFL.

As a valuable contributer to this blog, this comment is beneath you.

Who says he even makes it to next season let alone a third season?  Yeah, he's fast, but he's fumbled on 3 out of his 19 carries.  If he can't cut it on the Jags and has a big fumble problem, I doubt anyone else is going to give him a look.

They don't have a lot of money tied up in him, so they'll probably cut him after the season and move on to someone else that can hold on to the ball.

Ya I just recall the arm he always carried the ball in to be his left.  Because it would drive me nuts that he never switched to his outside hand.

I may not be recalling correctly though.  

Magnus I know you've weighed in on his ball carrying before.  Any insight?

LOL. I think it's funny that anyone remembers this, but yes, I criticized his ball security after the season opener in 2010, his first year as the starting QB.

It's been a weakness of his to carry the ball with his left hand, he rarely covers it up in traffic, and he often sticks the ball out to try to gain extra yardage. I'm really surprised that one of the best runners in college football and a guy who was a starting QB for three years couldn't learn to protect the football better. Today's game was his 3rd fumble, and he had just 17 carries on the year going into today. That's not a recipe for earning/keeping a job in the NFL...
