    Always fun to go back to the initial impressions after a draft of players after they have gotten a season plus of playing time.

    Cant believe all the bemoaning of the loss of Kerwynn Williams. He ended up not making another NFL roster.

    He kind of reminds me a bit of Adrian Murrell.

    Also has a similar running style to Dalvin Cook but not THAT explosive.

    Chase Edmonds was the 5th player in NFL history to score 3 rush TD of 20+ yards in a single game (Mercury Morris, Clinton Portis, Adrian Peterson, and Doug Martin).

    The "dancing at the LOS" thingy might be by design. Chase seems to stop for one-tick to wait for a trap block to create a running lane. Then he scoots thru. Seems to work.

    Somebody mentioned that he runs like Emmitt Smith. They're similar in size (5' 9" and 205 - 210 pounds), and both run low to the ground. Emmitt Smith had great vision though. Does Edmonds?

    i remember when we signed an ancient E Smith to a short-term deal. He had lost most of his speed, but still possessed his remarkable ability to pick out holes.

    Watching the way he runs, Chase looks like he might have that same, really rare skill. To see holes as they're developing. Right now he's little more than a one game wonder though.

    Just hope that the people that Harry worked with don't scout for the Cardinals. :)

    It did for LeVeon Bell. But they're different types/styles beyond that. They all need that crease though. The run blocking needs to keep progressing this year! There's hope in this mini run. Coach K is adapting some.

    And let's not forget that the local hangout was named "The Donneybrook Lodge."

    There’s a saying in horse racing, “a horse for the course.” I think that’s Edmonds. He certainly was no star last season. It’s not more time in the league, it’s the offense that made the difference. This offense spreads the defense. In fact the Giants replaced LBs with DBs on several plays. That makes it easier to find holes quickly as no one is filling the O-line gaps. I’ve already posted that Edmonds is far more effective in this system. I don’t know any scout who recommends changing an offense to help a running back be more effective. I rated Edmonds as a choice for the offense he was drafted to join. You conveniently ignored the part about picking up rushers, which Edmond himself said accounted for the punt block.

    I won’t respond to the cheap shot. I will say no one ever asked for a refund! If it’s really important to you keep digging. I’ve missed legitimately on a few.
