Time to get Feaster involved, well past time...

Definitely not stating Gallman needs less carries, but when he is spelled he needs to be spelled by Feaster. Feaster is already over 200 pounds and has world class speed. We have plenty of weapons on offense, but what a luxury would it be to put a RB in with fresh legs that can on any play take it the length of the field.

coaches haven't found a way to use him yet apparently***

Is Feaster going to be able to pick it up on his running play?;)

Dabo prob. would only play him if Clemson is up big. For some reason he seems to be loyal to guys when other guys that are better than them sit and watch. I.E. Cole Stout sucked and Watson came in vs. UGA and gunned a TD then he put him right back on the bench. That's just my opinion. Either way Feaster will be ripping it up next year.

Don't want to get Watson killed like FSU's QB.

As Demarcus Walker said of Dalvin Cook - "he's scared to block me."

The coaches have addressed this. Why won't people believe them?

I didn't say start him, I stated use him in the rotation...

in other words when he is in there hand the ball off to him or have him ran a pass route.

We depend too much on our running back to pick up blitzes

and block in the passing game to risk a kill shot on Watson with a pass blocking novice. Too many other superior pass receivers who can get open if you give Watson time to find them. That's part of the reason you seldom see Gallman in pass routes. Plus, You can't telegraph your play calling with personnel as you are suggesting.

Put him in when you think he is prepared to succeed - preferably when there is another quarterback in the game.

well that means we need a new oline coach if the oline is...

is struggling that much that a player can't get in for say like 6-10 plays a game. Only thing I suggested was a few plays. And if you haven't noticed we have been telegraphing our first down plays all season with runs up the middle, and we are still undefeated

badge-donor-05yr.jpg link

Fire the line coach because 5 can't block 6?


Posted: Nov 4, 2016, 7:48 PM
 

That doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

Hit a few wheel routes to Feaster and the opposing DC will think twice ( or thrice) about blitzing. A delayed handout to Feaster is another way to counter a blitz. What I'm saying is there are ways to get him involved without exposing DW to being crushed.

A defensive coordinator will take that chance

for a kill shot on Watson.

If Feaster is in the game, blitz. If you know he can't pass block or pick up blitzes, then it's 90% run likelihood and a slight chance at a wheel route.

Exactly. Like every time KB comes in it is a zone read and

Agree 100% about not wanting to telegraph play by personnel

Not only would we be disadvantaged by the opponent knowing that we will likely be running the ball with Feaster anytime he comes in, it would vastly reduce our audible packages.

A large number of our plays feature multiple run/pass options based on pre-snap and/or post-snap reads. In other words, when we can a run play, it isn't always a straight up run no matter what the defense is doing.

On a side note, once Feaster does develop a deeper understanding of the playbook and improves his pass protection, I would love to see him on the patented C.J. wheel-route and also on the outside toss that we used to run back in 2011 to Ellington/Hot Rod/Sammy.

It is hard to get ur 4th string rb touches.

A Blind Man can see he's our Best Natural Runner


Posted: Nov 4, 2016, 7:03 PM
 

Very shocking that they don't at least have a few packages for him where they can get him some touches on a screen or wheel route or jet sweep. He must have done something to be in the dawg haus because it's very easy to see he is the best RB on the team. 8.7 YPC.... yeah, get back on the bench there buddy we don't want to hurt any Juan's feelings by scoring too much.

I'm assuming the coaches see something you don't and aren't

prone to emotional reactions to players.

Gallman is by far our best back. Feaster has the greater potential, but he's not there yet.

badge-donor-05yr.jpg link

Are you saying he's the fifth best RB we have. That's where


Posted: Nov 4, 2016, 8:03 PM
 

he's listed, and many of us are having a hard time believing that. I trust the coaching staff, but it would be nice to know what's going on with Feaster. Is he hurt, head not in the game, whatever? If this is talked about on the team as it is on Tnet, it will become a distraction,

Let me recap that

It's not that he's fifth in terms of talent


Posted: Nov 4, 2016, 10:58 PM
 

He's fifth in terms of understanding the playbook and pass protection. Also, if those are indeed the reasons for his lack of playing time, I wouldn't want our coaching staff to come out and explain in detail that he doesn't know how to pick up blitzes and that he only knows a limited part of the playbook.

In the event that we did need him in the game BC of injuries or if he was to come in late in the game because we have a big lead, I don't want the opposing team to know in detail any and all of his weaknesses.

C'mon! How in the world could actual football coaches that


Posted: Nov 4, 2016, 9:47 PM
 

see and talk to these players every single day possibly know things that we don't and therefore be doing the right thing by not playing Feaster? That's just crazy talk!

Feaster needs to block..
Anyone want to see our All American QB get blown up because our freshman running back needs more snaps?
I'll let the guys whose paycheck is on the line make that decision..I think they know what they're doing

How can he block if he isn't in the Game!!! I'm not talking about practice.

How has Feaster looked in practice that leads you to think he needs more OT over the other backs?

It seems like I've heard Dabo say that........


Posted: Nov 4, 2016, 6:25 PM
 

Feaster's had a hard time learning/understanding our offensive scheme and that he's just not ready to play much yet.

link

Are you sure about that? I haven't seen that.


Posted: Nov 4, 2016, 6:32 PM
 

I've seen them state that he is reluctant to hit it hard without hesitation and hit top speed and I've heard them say he never had to pass block - they just sent him on wheel routes - and they don't want to get their franchise quarterback killed, but I've not seen that statement.

Basically...


Posted: Nov 4, 2016, 7:22 PM
 

Our coaches don't play him much for a reason. And I trust them.

Re: Time to get Feaster involved, well past time...

When Spiller played as a freshman we had no qb of major talent and needed the explosive plays or we had nothing. That's the difference, end of story.

link

Freshmen speed demons are seldom able to block.


Posted: Nov 4, 2016, 8:51 PM
 

If he can't block that removes the mystery of what we are going to do when he is in the game. That's like telling everybody we're handing the ball to Feaster.

2021 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpgringofhonor-clemsontiger1988-110.jpg link

There's a reason he isn't playing.

He isn't ready.
