Weirdest part of the entire scenario. While the Cards did alter their blocking scheme I’m not aware of any lower body injury that impacted his style of running. I been watching football since Jim Brown was carrying and I’ve never seen a runner so dramatically alter his style. It will be interesting to see how he runs in Texas.

It was Wilks & company that changed him I believe. I remember reading the rb coach told him to stop the jump cuts/zig zagging & just put your head down & run forward. He obviously didn't run the same under Wilks.

Man, we've had flashes from guys over the years but have never had a consistently great RB.

How many RBs provide that consistency these days? Are there maybe 5 in the league right now ovet 5 years playing at a high level?

Henry - 8 seasons Joining new team
McCaffrey - 7 seasons Second team
Mixon - 7 seasons Joining new team
Barkely - 6 Seasons Joining new team
Jacobs - 5 season Joining new team

That's it and Barkley/Jacobs have already fallen off a little bit.

That’s why I would draft one high every five years or so.
