KJ was injured LAST season and didn’t even play half of it , he’s returning from injury THIS season and has played 5 whole games. only/singleOur O-line isn’t a total—run-blocking line. yeah under Bevell they can do it at times but it isn’t solid ‘yet’ if it will ever be. KJ himself is the only/single-best RB we have, so when defenses shut him down when we run because they KNOW he’s the guy we are going to…that doesn’t help.
that is why I keep saying we need a legit #2 RB to PAIR KJ and help take some of the load off. that way we have a dual threat @ RB and we would-be more productive running the ball.
you dog KJ, but the man has played 5 games so far and is quickly approaching 300 yards as a RB…and has 2 TD’s “so far” this season. he can’t have more TD’s if he’s not given the opportunity to try to get them. I don’t hate the guy, he’s our best source at running, defenses know that and shut him down MORE quick because they already know who we are going to run with…easy to shut that down.
