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 never said he sucked, by the way. Are you Darwin Thompson? Is that why you're so butthurt right now?

They drafted him so surely they want to get him on the field.
No, if you watch league wide very few coaches will put a rookie over a player they already paid or traded for. Hunt would not had his breakout without the injury. Charles would have been on another team if ljwasnt an ass.

The kid has shown flashes, but no real game time touches. Shady has singlehandedly helped in two losses.

That's cool. Really cool story.

What's it got to do with what we're talking about?

Bottom line: our RB position heading into preseason was shit. Damien was hurt, no one believed in Darrel, and LeSean wasn't on the team. If Darwin had shown that he was ready to play he'd have gotten his opportunity to do so by now. Especially with Dame averaging negative 6 YPC and Shady fumbling away multiple games.

He could come in and play well. It wouldn't be the first time it's happened.. but that's not the debate.

i don't have to explain a literal ****ing thing. my point was he was setting up to be the 2nd stringer before mccoy got here. and he was, based off preseason and who he was playing with. absolutely jack ****ing shit will change that fact.

why he's not getting reps post mccoy is an entirely different debate and i don't give a god damn mother****ing shit about speculating the cause with you

Kris Wilson 2?

RGR has been right about this kid all along. He didn’t give much reasoning, but said from early on that Thompson wouldn’t play a lot as a rookie.

IMHO, they don't trust him in pass blocking(recognizing/his size-going against the Vikes D) and maybe he is slow picking up the playbook as well.

He has looked very good every chance he has received. Just didn’t get any from preseason until today. I think he is our best back, but I’ve also thought that since mid-August. Remember that Hunt wouldn't have gotten looks early if it wasn’t for injuries.
