He will break Drug Martin's record...Winston hasn't had a running back threat since Delvonte Freeman and Dalvin Cook.

Doug Martin rushed for 1,400 yards in 2015 and averaged a shade under 5 YPC. He and Sims combined for 1,931 rushing yards that year. Swing and a miss.

Yeah I’m going with no. My guess is he ends up somewhere around 900 or so combined rushing and receiving yards.

Which as what to do with the point you're trying to make? You said Jameis hasn't had a "Running Back Threat" since FSU. Martin had 1,400 yards, was 5th in the league in YPC, and was First Team All Pro. Your point is ****.

Hopefully we give the kid a break here , maybe he does great but it’s not just about physical ability and 40 times.
1.He has to learn the offense and blocking assignments
2. Get used to the speed of the game

It will definitely be interesting to see if we become more of a run first team. I know Koetter wants to be, but having so many weapons makes passing it hard to resist.

I don't think Dirk Koetter wants to be a run 1st team at all. He's got a QB, great weapons in the passing game and an Oline that is probably better at pass protecting. At best he wants to be a balanced offense but we're not trying to be the Dallas Cowboys here.

Koetter has reiterated many times that he wants to run the ball first and foremost. We've simply not had the personnel to do it until now.

I haven't heard anything of the such. But even still running the ball first doesn't mean you want to build around the run game. Not with the weapons and resources we have devoted to the passing game. Don't buy it for a second.

I’m sure that had nothing to do with force feeding a ridiculously poor Doug Martin.

Just as I’m sure we were able to consistently run the ball in the second half of games to protect those juicy leads we’d built.

I'm one of Jones' biggest fans - really happy we drafted him - but no way he even gets close to 1200 rushing yards this year.

My guess, barring injuries:
Barber will get about 600-700 (and ~100 receiving)
Jones will get about 600 (and ~250 receiving)
Sims will get about 150 (and ~150 receiving)

Barber couldn’t make himself the clear #1 against two years of drug suspended, 2.9 ypc and worst starting RB in the league Doug Martin. The coaching staff chose THAT version of Doug Martin over Barber, yet people believe Jones won’t be the clear #1?

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

If he did this, I'd find it more impressive that all his rushing totals were divisible by 5 than anything else.


I was trying to do the math on one hand, I thought it would be easier to follow along. JPP would have a hard time coming up with the same amount, and apparently another poster just realized that my math was still off. How pathetic is that......... :banghead:

Were you using JPP fingers when counting or did I really screw it up that bad? I'm sure it's me....

:lol: The good old adding machine right next to me, controlled by yours truly--an individual with five, fully functioning digits completely attached to the right extremity, let to the answer of 1,190 regular season rushing yards and a total of 1,445 yards when including the pre-season statistics.

You number of 255 pre-season rushing yards was correct, but what tipped me off was that you originally stated 255 pre-season yards while having 1,355 total rushing yards (including pre-season), which would have meant he only had 1,100 rushing yards in the regular season. I decided to add them all up to see where the variance was and have come to the conclusion that when you added the numbers up in total, you had accidentally skipped over the 90 projected rushing yards versus the Redskins.

LOL. No, RJ doesn't get 1200 rushing yards if you throw in preseason, post-season and practice.

Yes, yes, aware of his break away speed that will make him a fan favorite.....

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.
