The Lounge>Is it Darwin Thompson time?
SAGA45 08:35 AM 09-16-2019
With Damien Williams (knee) and LeSean McCoy (ankle) banged up, do you guys think this week could be Thompson's opportunity to go off? I think it'd be awesome to see the kid come in and have a big game.

I guess I'm less cheery about it than others. I think our running game is good enough. I don't think it's great by any means. Our RBs have been downright lethal in space and in the passing game. Shady looked good against the jags. Damien hasn't really looked great as a pure runner in either game.

I wonder if we're kind of like the old School patriots where the screen game basically becomes our running game.

Depends on if his pass blocking has improved. With Mahomes a little limpy, we need to make sure whoever is out there can and will protect him. Like when Shady took the holding penalty yesterday, because he was making sure Pat didn’t get hit.

The Raiders IIRC, actually had and have a pretty good run D.

He's definitely going to get more than his 1 snap ritual. I'm extremely excited because frankly I think he's a better rusher than the guys ahead of him on the depth chart.

KC RB coach: “Last week, the plan was to get him more involved. I think with the number of plays we had, we did have some packages for him, but we just didn’t get an opportunity to get to [them]. But if you watch Darwin in practice, we’ve got to get that guy out there.” https://t.co/yLXkuEU4Ck

He looks small and like he's gonna get killed every time he's tackled.

Hes 5'8" 201 lbs. Barry Sanders 5'8" 203 lbs Ray Rice 5'8" 206lbs Maurice Jones Drew 5'7" 210 lbs

Those guys were pretty good and received a bulk of the carries. Im not concerned about it.

He's literally bigger and stronger than Phillip Lindsey that's a retarded ass thing to say. Go watch his tape, just like Reek he does not play like his size.

And he runs similarly to all of them except Barry.

Good vision
Tremendous balance
Difference making drive
Great acceleration
Very strong

Itís a long shot to think he will be as good as them, but in college and pS the styles are very similar.

There was a metric like yards after contact or something that Thompson was 2nd to only k hunt

He ranked fourth in forced missed tackles per touch (0.349) and second in yards after contact per touch (6.91) among the 210 FBS backs with 100 or more touches on the year. Though limited to just 151 carries this past season, Thompson ranked eighth in forced missed tackles per rush (0.318) and sixth in yards after contact per rush (5.07). His ability to make defenders miss in the open field and remain upright through contact is among the best entering this year’s draft

I hope we do play him so I can show my face in some fantasy football forums that I had to leave in shame after the full-on Darwin Campaign I ran all preseason.
