Bringing in Rex Burkhead to camp last year was fine. Bringing him back another year was somewhat surprising. Having him as the No. 2 running back on an NFL team right now is inexcusable, regardless of the reasoning by Caserio.
Some of that play calling made me feel like they want another top pick. Pierce broke off a 75 yard run for a TD, then on 4th & 1 you have Rex Burkhead on the field and every single person in the stadium knew what the play was. That’s disgraceful.
This was some of the worst run defense I’ve ever seen lmaooo. They hardly get any pressure at all and Stingley/Owens/Pitre/Nelson have to run around for like 12 seconds on passing plays. Wallow, Harris, and Booker should be on the field more, and less of Kirksey. Grugier-Hill is clearly still not fully healthy, so you have two out of place LBs on the field. The d line needs to be shuffled around as well. But…….if the offense doesn’t stall out on the regular, none of that would even matter.
