Rainey has been totally ineffective in his few opportunities, I think that's why Batch has been getting some PT. I think Rainey is just a little hesitant... he needs to get walloped a few times so he can get over it and get on with his career. The kid could be a game changer no doubt.
Rainey needs to be more of a receiver than runner. Dwyer wasn't getting carries recently because he was hurt.
We heard a lot about what these guys did in spot duty last year and how they were better than Mendy. Difference being when you're asked to carry the load, your body takes a beating. Don't think any of our backups was ready for that.
