I think mentioning Kevin Faulk and Joseph Addai in the same breath is a little bit of a stretch.
what you have to realize is that faulk and addia were every down backs, ware is not, Les will use alot of backs, the other two backs usually got 17 to 30 touches per game, so their numbers are way better, but imo ware is every bit a nfl type running back and not just a third down option.
Did anyone else think Hill looked very very soft Saturday? I know he was having ankle problems but he did not look at all like the same back we had seen the two prior weeks. Not as explosive or as strong on finishing his runs.
I should have made myself a little clearer both of those former LSU backs had long NFL carrers and both had great hands those are the similarities I was speaking of. In the right situation I believe Ware could be the sole back. Reguardless he is a punishing runner that we can all agree on.
I believe it was related to the ankle "injury" he suffered in the first half.
What I meant was the difference between Kevin Faulk's longevity and Joseph Addai's rather short, injury riddled career.
Kevin Faulk would be the one but I don't recall a Td pass except to Tom Brady. Or maybe an old timer did it playing multiple positions.
A lot of people played multiple positions in the early days of football. I wouldn't be surprised if it happened fifty years ago or so.
Addai stayed injured bc he was not an every down back. Proved to be his downfall in the nfl as well.
Yeah, it's possible that it was done in the old ironman days of football, where a lot of dudes played literally every down on both sides of the ball.
Spencer just has a very rare combination of extreme power and versatility. You usually don't see the power backs catching downfield passes or throwing on the halfback pass.
