Default How Important Is Verron Haynes Coming Back?

I for one may have took for granted what this young man in Verron Haynes means to our team. As I am sittin' here watching and recording last years AFC Tittle Game on to DVD, he was really a big factor in our passing game and on 3rd downs you didnt really have to worry about him picking up the on coming blitzes that the Broncos were sending at us when he was in there. What do ya'll think about this subject?

I agree he was good in 2005, but last season, he didn't have it.

I think Verron is important for those third downs as long as we keep him as a third down back. Last year we were trying to find the Bus replacement with Willie, Duce, and Verron as well as just a RB to give Willie a break. It seemed as if he never felt comfortable in the various roles that Steelers kept trying him at. If we just keep Verron as that third down back, he will be fine (provided he stays healthy).

I'm OK with Verron, but I prefer using Davenport as a third downer and when Willie needs a breather.

Verron is the best blocking back we have IMO. On a down that Ben was mauled by the rats over and over again in the 2 games played. I would say his return is indeed significant.

He's very underrated. He played a key role in 3rd down blocking and pass recieving.

I completely agree agree B&G! Verron has good hands for those short dump passes on 3rd downs. I'm not completely keen on him as a power back, but then, Najeh hasn't really impressed me either as a slam-em-in-the-mouth-cram-it-down-their-throat rusher either. But, admittedly, Najeh has REALLY impressed me with his kick returns.

I say we keep him and limit his play to the pass block and 3rd down converter role that he has excelled so easily in. I truly like the guy. DO NOT do as we did with Kordell in trying to play him where he just isn't a perfect fit. Kordell did great as the short yardage guy......we forced him into the open field QB and, well................see where that got us, and him.

I say definitely bring him back, but being a UGA fan, I'm a little biased.
As mentioned, one of his best features is being a short yardage receiver out of the backfield, Ben missed that this year.
