Is tied to lack of quality and or depth at RB

Ive advocated for a long time the Haley 1957 offense needs 3 solid RBs to have a shot at a Lombardi

Are Bell Conner and Davis good enough ?

We will see

2012 8-8 Dwyer 623 2TD Redman 410 2TD
2013 8-8 Bell 860 8TD Dwyer 197 0TD
2014 Playoff loss Josh Harris 9/25 0TD Ben Tate 5/19 0TD
2015 Playoff loss Fitz Tousaint 12/39 1TD
2016 Playoff loss DWill 14/34 1TD Bell 6/20 0TD

True. And frustrating.

Especially since it's well documented that Tomlin has tried & tried to limit Bell's carries, draft actual RBs rather than gadgets, modernize that 1957 offense, and ensure the depth is getting some touches.

Only to be blocked by Haley every step of the way. Some are even referring to Haley as "the most powerful OC in football".

The cuckold wannabe golfer masquerading as an OC era will go down in infamy...

That says it all to me.....Bell has yet to play a full season and our depth has largely been horrible

Yes. I agreed with you. It'll be nice when Haley no longer has final say on matters so these things can be addressed.

Wow, I'd almost forgotten the Dwyer/Redman years.

That 2015 loss in Denver really stings. Not only RB issues but refs ignoring Denver DBs mugging Bryant and Wheaton in end zone. F that game.

Tomlin could have Bell, Adrian Peterson, and Barry Sanders...he'd still run the wheels off...

Well...to be fair, they were pretty forgettable.

Lol. But again, thats what this offense as designed requires. Lots of production from the RB spot.

I love Bell. I like Connor. Davis is a wait and see imo

It doesnt look like a deep enough group to me presently. We need a quality 3rd RB and Davis at least right now on paper doesnt look like it.

We need another legit RB
