Am I the only one who thinks Minor, Grady and Brown should get more looks?
It seems that any time Minor gets a handoff, he goes for at least 10 yards if not a touchdown. He had that fumble against Utah when he was already down, and then the backwards pass from Threet that wasn't all his fault. It just seems anytime he can actually get the ball he is extremely productive.
Brown was being hyped up so much throughout the off-season, but has done so little. I realize that he has been injured and with the great depth at running back, there would be no reason not to sit him out. I just hope when he's finally at 100% he can contribute more.
And Grady, sure, he had that costly fumble against ND, but it was forgivable. It was a monsoon and half of ND's personnel on-field were clinging to him. The man carried a linebacker 7 yards into the endzone. I'd like to see him in more situations than the incredibly surprise run up the gut on 4th and 1.
I like McGuffie as much as the next guy, but it just seems he tends to go down on first contact a lot and not to mention his blocking sucks. ND was hailing as his break-out game, but I'm sure anyone of our backs could have put up those kind of numbers against that defense.
I really do hope the veteran backs get more looks.
