They should have given Conner some rest even though Tomtom wants to run the wheels off. He doesn't take any responsibility and says Conner can handle a heavy work load. Right!

OC Randy Fichtner on James Conner getting all the RB snaps vs Browns: "Thats on the young coordinator. I shoulda got the other running backs in there."

2018 - the year Tomlin learned that running backs need a rest sometimes.

Progress is a good thing for our coach. Slow and steady progress.

Hard to blame Fichtner considering we've never really utilized 2-backs even with Haley and Arians.

Progress? Wasn't Fitchner on staff when we trotted out greenhorn Frenchy in 2015 vs the Broncos?

There is ZERO self awareness and self reflection with this organization. Starts with Eddie Munster and Tomlin

Tomlin made his run the wheels off position clear on this from the beginning.

Exactly. Which is why...
"OC Randy Fichtner on James Conner getting all the RB snaps vs Browns: "Thats on the young coordinator. I shoulda got the other running backs in there."

...is pure bullshit

What this tells you is somewhere, the coaching staff is getting heat for the run the wheels off philosophy because on Sunday after the game, both Tomlin and Fichtner were intimating Connor getting all the carries was by design.
