Maybe I will get to see some smash mouth football after all. I don't like PT getting hurt but I have been wanting to see Robinson get more carries.

PT is a very good player. He will be missed. But, I've never seen Ingram miss a block. Also, the rotation now tightens up and mybe one of the backs may be able to get into the flow of the game better. Plus, now Payton has an excuse to run the ball more, which I believe will benefit the offense as a whole.

Stats are one thing but intangibles are another. His leadership and presence in the game cannot be replaced just by anyone.
I should have been specific to the offense I guess...

PTs great we all love him, but you guys are acting like we shouldn't even show up.

Its the end of the world... 1 of our 4 RBs just went down... we are going to get beat 52-0...

Screen game all but dead now, can't wait to see our running backs fall down on contact now, seems like PT is the only back that gets yards after contact

I wouldn't mind Stills getting some return action next year... Sproles hasn't done much.

You are right; Sproles sucks running the screen.

Activate Cadet; that will give the iggles more film they will have to watch!

Re: PT officially ruled out for Saturdays Playoff Game

With Sproles it's obvious that it's a screen or draw, with PT you have to defend against more options, Ingram and Robinson it's a run.

This is what drives me crazy about this offense

Maybe not!! Every D expects screens to PT and Sproles, which PT has done much better than Sproles but they don't have much tape on Ingram and much less tape on Robinson, if Payton can come up with a few disguises for Ingram and Robinson the screen game might just suprise Phillies D. Our screens have gotten to predictable anyway.
