In Response to Re: A Case for Waiving Woodhead : I'm not sure what his third down % was last season, but I was surprised he wasn't used more like they used to use Faulk. I expected screens, draws, swing passes, delays, etc. Instead it looked like they were using him like a normal back - I personally think it was because of a lack of "lead" back talent and maybe because he wasn't capable of doing the things Faulk did? IDK, but it was strange to me.

IMO, it prob had more to do with schematics than skill set (both Vereen and Woody could be really effective in this area)... hopefully McDaniels will work a lot more of the screen game into the offense.
I agree MB. I don't think those plays were part of what OB liked to call, unfortunately for the offense. Talent is not an excuse for calling a one dimensional game plan. I think McD is bringing back some I formation, and some FB work. The RB receptions/screens etc should increase this year!
