Johnson looked good tonight, although I hate the thought of giving him work in the preseason.  10 carries tonight for 63 yards and he had a few really nice runs. But next week keep him low, give him like 5 carries and call it a preseason.  Want him healthy for week one!

Guy is never been injury prone, and seems to get better with the more touches he gets. I am excited to see him in our offense. We need some explosive players, and he is definitely one.

I know but they have so much riding on him. And I just cringe at the thought of him missing the opener. I don't want to see him with a 14 carry effort on short rest against the Giants. Give him 5 carries and call it a night.

 

They have to figure out what they are doing with Richardson. Let him carry the ball 40 times until they figure it out. :)

I don't know what they're going to do at the position for the rest of the pre-season. Maybe run Green and Richardson into the ground? Ivory and Johnson should both be given rest to be sure they're as healthy as can be going into the season, and we know what we have in Powell already, anyway. Powell looked great tonight, BTW.

 

I guess the real question for me is, if we carry only 4 backs, who is the odd man out: Richardson, Bohannon?

Haha. I would've traded up for a WR in the 3rd, though.

No need! In your ceaseless quest to improve the team, you took Stephen Hill over Alshon Jeffery and Russell Wilson!

I was trying to leave my opinion about Idzik out of this and just comment on the RBs. If you wanna talk Idzik vs. Tanny, I would be happy to do so on another thread...

Everyone knows what CJ can do I think it's stupid to use him so much in the preseason

Gotta figure that Ivory is gonna get the ball more since he was out. Plus, Bilal is playing himself into a good spot.

Green and Richardson, do they make this roster? We need a fullback so...

The whole running back by committee is gonna last about two games before Rex realizes CJ is by far our most dangerous threat. CJ is gonna get run into the ground. LT level use coming.

IMO, getting decker back into the offense will be a big plus. I thought Amaro was all right tonight. Geno looks competent. Running game is solid. Overall O looks much improved. I'd say it's a 18 to 20 rank O. D I can't judge yet. It was in reality almost the 2nd string secondary (no Dee, CP, Patterson). Wilson continues to frustrate sometimes flashing but generally disappointing. If the D can step up their schemes once the season starts and the secondary heals we should ok. Overall I think we have the look of a work in progress improving .500 team. I am thinking the playoffs are a reach, maybe I should just hope Geno develops and we found a decent QB.

We need to run the ball all day long, and pray that Dee is the guy from the last quarter of last season and not the first three... then have Pryor patrolling out there... and have the d line be lights out. Then maybe we get to nine wins.

Really. At this point since this is going to be a run first offense, put him udner glass until opening day. At a loss why he was in the game well into the 2nd quarter last night.

Thought Johnson looked pretty bad tbh Max. Slow and not much burst or lateral quickness. Powell looked much better.

The runs he had that went for decent yardage were all just him running straight ahead with no one in front of him to make a tackle. Powell was actually creating yards on his own. He's also a better receiver...funny thing is CJ was never that great a pass catcher. Hell he was replaced by Javon Ringer on 3rd downs in Tennessee.

That's funny.  After watching him the first game I wanted to run him into the ground cause he looked rusty and I see him as a disposable threat.  Use the hell out him.  In the first game he ran like a vet that had the team made and was loafing.  I want to punish him for that. Make him go hard or I would beat the hell out him in preseason.

Yeah a lot of the runs were to the outside where he just beat guys to the edge or like you said there was no one in front of him and he was able to run freely. Its pretty evident to me that Bilal is the more talented back. This sounds terrible but I'm sort of hoping for small injuries to Ivory and CJ just so this coaching staff can see what Bilal can do with 25 carries to himself.I don't like CJ at all, love Ivory, but Bilal can ball man. In any case I'd be happy with whatever combo helps the Jets win the most games.

Powell being the better runner is a problem...Johnson looked done last year and was always hugely dependent on the blocking in front of him. Our run blocking stinks right now...I mean we'll see but I'd hate to have Powell on the bench because of CJ's contract. And Powell isn't that great either...but in terms of the 3rd down role he's younger and has more wiggle.

The usual suspects will blow Idzik regardless ...but this is so outside his "plan" you have to think Rex was behind this move. We had 100 picks in the draft and couldn't take a back?
