    He's definitely got physical ability. I wish he could just take charge of his situation and make it happen. I put it more on him than on the coaches. I was hoping to see a markedly stronger guy mentally this year. Quick seems to have made a nice step forward. I'd like to see that from Pead, and soon. I'm not sure I buy the stuff about him missing OTAs last year as the root of his problems. I know it didn't help, but before the new CBA, 1st round picks used to hold out and miss a lot longer than that and still play well once they got into camp.

    By this statement, you are making the assumption he HASN'T been producing. I take it you make this assumption based on the fact you haven't seen him do anything yet.

    I watch him in practice and trust me, he has more than produced on a day in and day out basis. That he is "dinged up" now, really doesn't change his status, IMO, with this coaching staff one way or another.

    It's based totally on the Browns game. Zero touches. Practice is fine but game time is crucial IMO.

    minus the fumble, Pead three carries 18 yds
    DR 6 carries 24 yds
    neither of those rock my boat, and i'd bet my boat one one of these two come out as our primary back

    No surprise here, DR says he can block for Sam, everything i've read about camp says he cant, but Pead can. Where does this go, 3 more preseason games may tell us, it might take half the season

    I'm completely sympathetic.

    At my college, part of my Spanish class was on campus and online..

    It was a hell lot easier to learn in person vs online. Easier to ask questions, actually be able to point things out and walk through it, etc.

    Learning an offense is like learning a 2nd language

    He didn't DRESS for the Browns game due to a MINOR leg strain. He didn't practice Saturday, but was back doing unit drills on Monday.

    And how do you really think they are going to be able to get "touches" for SIX RBs in the same Preseason game?

    What's the longest thread we've ever had here at ROD? This one has to be getting close?

    It's a great topic.

    A great example of what's fun with forums.

    There is no end to it, because fundamentally there is a divide on how to evaluate him.

    Lol.

    I hope it's the guys who "doubt him" that delete. Yes, that's me. I hope I'm worried for no reason.

    That is where everybody is on the same side, I hope. We should all want him to be successful, because that is what will bode well for this team.
