    Many of us (including me) were giving him grief, but I realize that was more the play calling of Kingsbury than Drake’s performance. It seems K2 finally realized in the 4th quarter of the Jets game to call plays that feature Drake’s strengths.

    It needs stay that way.

    He really only had a bad game and a half. The big difference between the back half of last year is he’s not catching passes.

    Disagree. He has had 4 bad games and two good ones, IMO.

    He really took KK's advise to stop dancing around and hit the hole. He has looked much better because of it.

    IMO, it was more Drake being timid and not hitting the hole like I mentioned above. You can see a complete change to how he runs now.

    If there was ever a stat that shows how stats can be misleading it's this one.

    They might’ve been bad games by star RB standards. I don’t hold him to that standard. It’s not like Chase has been tearing it up in limited snaps either.

    How so? You either gain the yards or you don’t.

    Drake was 20th in the league before the last game. Without that long run at the end of the game, he would be around 10.

    Suggs had 5.5 sacks with us last year, but most of them came in 2 games and he was trash the rest. Stats can lie.

    Even if you—ridiculously—take away his rush at the end of the Dallas game, he still has more rushing yards than Zeke Elliot...

    What standard do you hold him to?

    What is your point? That he is better than Zeke? That situations don't dictate how well a team, or player plays?

    What is your angle here?

    Again...take away that run (ridiculously) he still is in the top 10 in the league. You can’t just arbitrary take plays away (positively or negatively) to fit your view.

    The angle is he is currently 4th in the league in rushing yards.
