    I agree. Do we not like Rodney Stewart in the second half. Can we have a formation that gets both Stewart and Scott on the field so they have to honor both the outside and inside rush. Stewart was able to bust some good runs yesterday but we never got him in the second half.

    Stewart was sick yesterday, and I was surprised to see him try to play at all in the first place.

    Granted Speedy was sick....but is it just me or is it OBVIOUS as hell that if Speedy's in the game he will get the ball....i almost guarantee that every play he is in he touches the ball....I'm no Defensive Coordinator but that's pretty easy to key in on :confused:

    Each guy gets the ball a couple of times divyed up in the vein of being as fair as possible. Then the most successful guy gets to sit on the bench and drink gatorade and stare at girls in the stands. Quesitons?

    I don't know the plan either! But I'm thinking Scott may have just taken Sumlers job.

    Scott was clearly the bigger threat on Saturday.

    I think D. Scott assumed the starting job 'mid-hurdle'.

    I hate this running out of the gun. The RB's are taking handoffs from almost a standing start rather than getting a 2 or 3 step head of steam.

    I'm confused too BB.

    I would like to see Scott and Stewart in the game at the same time some.

    If our playbook doesn't get "opened up" I will start to question Helfrich. The first two games play calling has reminded me a lot of Shortbus Shawn Watson.

    Not only that, but when you run out of the gun the RB gets the ball right away and the defense can commit and react quicker.

    And on D. Scott....he played downright insanely good....the yards he got were the toughest I've seen a RB work....he'd shake 2-3 guys off just to get 3 yards....and going forward he should be the main guy...end of discussion

    Darrell Scott can be the next Adrian Peterson if he had a line that could block Eastern Washington. I don't get it. I thought the O line was a strong point but I was so frustrated watching that game. Cody seemed like he was on his back almost every play. I have watched Ryan Miller play almost every game at Columbine but he looked awful. get off the line Ryan come on

    I think tea leaves and palm readings are involved.
