Gray, Daje, and Monroe need to get 95% of the carries until Brown gets healthy. His below average vision just kills. He does have some really good ball skills, and a place in this offense, just not as the lead ball carrier.
I think when Brown gets back, we just need to use Bergeron in short yardage and goal line situations and use Gray and Brown as our main backs sprinkled in with Daje, DJ, and Hills.
Agreed. Still trying to understand what Harsin was doing with running back to back plays up the middle with Bergeron when we sacked G. Smith at the twelve. I was expecting some play action pass or wildcat. It was pretty evident that we weren't successful throughout the night running up the middle.

keep expecting some imaginative stuff. Never came.
I agree. I said this last week after Okie state game. I thought Gray earned the right to get more carries for this game, particularly with M Brown out. Harsin gets locked in to things (trying to force the run game in the middle) and forgets what he has in terms of personnel. We can't afford to do that when we need scores in critical situations
Question is, when will Brown get healthy? He is our best runningback, even though I think Gray will eventually surpass him. Last night he was on crutches and even if he does come back soon he probably won't play at the pre-injury level.
Couldn't agree more. It frustrates the hell out of me. He runs too high to be maximally effective even in short yeardage.
Totally agree with this statement!
Joe is supposed to be the bruiser, but he is getting taken down by arm tackles time and time again. On one play in the 4th quarter he got brought down by a dt with one arm and lying on the ground.
I just saw a replay of the first running play up the middle after whaley's fumble recovery in the fourth qtr. Espinoza and the line created a huge hole,but that hole closed up quick before Bergeron could hit that hole. Any RB with decent speed or vision would have taken the run to the outside and scored,or would have gotten close to it.
Both runs on first and second down would have gone for big yards if Bergeron would have bounced them out to the outside.

He kept running right into the pile and ignored the holes.
Also, is this the 1st game Harsin didn't call a trick play?
Gray should starts (if he can help keep Ash from getting killed).
We should use Joe B like we used Ivan Williams once we moved him to FB in 2002. Gray should get the RB carries until brown is back.
I would play Hills for significant carriers over Bergeron at this point if someone needs to spell Gray. He has gotten much slower from last year. There's just no expectation that any run will go over 10-12 yards no matter how gaping the hole.
He needs to be the 4th quarter back when the middle is softer.
He needs to lose 15 pounds of muscle and train for speed.
On the missed FG drive, I just knew Jaxon was going to run the reverse pass..
