Jones will be the clear #1 RB Week 1. This 1B BS is wishful thinking.


I don't read a ton into that. Quizz Rodgers was sitting on his couch when Koetter called; he didn't call because Quizz was a great talent. He was simply his guy from Atlanta. Same with Antone Smith. I'm not sure Koetter is a "take the names off the jerseys" kind of coach. I don't think MOST coaches are, honestly.

FWIW, I do think the "1B" thing is false, but I think a "1A" thing is probably going to happen, with Barber still relevant as the "B." I don't think we're going to see some sort of, "Jones gets 24 touches, Barber gets 3, Sims gets 1" kind of stat line for the most part, either.

I think we see Jones as the man on 1st and 2nd downs, and Barber as the man on 3rd downs and in short yardage situations.

If we see lines of 15-10-5; we're gonna be just fine.

With Sims in on some third and long, and Barber getting the odd series to himself, I think that's probably right.
