As said above - there were plenty of much better options. We didn't address this at all - now its coming back to bite us - big time.
As mobile as Ben is, and as many defenders he jukes and jives, he's bound to get hurt sometime. He's just asking to get hurt, and hurt bad. To me, it's extremely hard to believe they didn't address this issue.....having a good, very solid backup ready to go.
I think you can make an argument that Charlie was improving a little as the game dragged on. It was up to the running backs to take the pressure off of him so he could get into a rhythm. It was also up to someone from the mash WR group to get separation outside of Sanders. Miller was a better receiver than Wallace in that game. Wallace is 0% dependable in clutch situations - or we need a difference maker. Cotchery has made bigger catches than Wallace has. Wallace has had 1 good game this season. End of story. It isn't all on Charlie. The RB group needs to walk around for a week with the ball in hand.
MacReady: Beaver pics - don't think we're in much shape to do anything about this thread
Childs: Well, what do we do?
MacReady: Why don't we just . . .wait here and post for a little while longer . . . see what happens?
