Default Re: Nostalgia "kicking in"

I could have chosen any one of 3 answers, but I picked #1. I think it IS time for a change. Moving the ball is moving the ball, and I think Parker can do it as well as Bus could. Bus had some good speed... but I have no doubt Parker can bust up a guy every now and then, too.

I don't think it's so much a change in philosophy as much as it is an adaptation of the offense to maximize a player's talent. If the next back is a bruiser, then we'll run plays that take advantage of it. I like the idea of having a guy who can rack up 200 yards in a game. And Bus had more than his share of no gains and -1s. His value was his absolute relentlessness once we had the lead. Parker's value is in getting that lead.
