TarHeels ~ 5082/203
Processing Speed ~ How Rapidly & Effectively they Read & React to the rapidly changing LandScape in front'f'm
Power ~ How forcefully they Run the Ball
Acceleration ~ I don't give a Rat's Ass about "40" Time. How Quickly do they Hit The Hole & Turn the Corner?
Fluidity ~ How Serpentine he flows through Traffic.
Ricochet ~ How Explosively they Burst out'f their Breaks when they Change Directions
Security ~ How reliably he holds onto the PigSkin
Pass Blocking ~ Can they stay on the field without endangering their QuarterBack's Life?
Pass Receiving ~ Are they a true Dual Threat ~ what I call a FlexBack?
I think that deploying a Feature Back is a ridiculously stupid way to go: You'll get much better results if your HalfBacks aren't constantly battered and bruised. It's the most punishing Position in the entire Game, as evidenced by the notoriously short Shelf Lives of HalfBacks ~ especially Feature Backs.
As such, it makes no sense to me to have less than 3 reasonably capable HalfBacks to share the Load.
After all: That's about 400-500 Tackles they need to absorb, each Year.
Nobody's asking any "Wide Receivers" to absorb 400 Tackles a Year, last I checked!!
And most of those are at the hands of 200 Pound CornerBacks, not 300 Pound Gorillas!!
And as it's quite obviously best for the Team to split up the Carries, it stands to reason that most HalfBacks simply don't warrant 1st Round Investments...with some few notable exceptions!!
Power ~ Dubious. Consistently runs Low, but displays minimal Power once he's hit Square.
Acceleration ~ Terrific!!
Ricochet ~ Extraordinary!!
Fluidity ~ Excellent.
Security ~ Outstanding.
Pass Blocking ~ Excellent!! Strong, Steady, and Square.
Pass Receiving ~ Phenomenal!! Great Hands & extraordinary Instincts ~ Incredible FlexBack skills!!
He's not blessed with exceptional Core Strength or Drive Power, so he's neither a Stone Wall in Pass Blocking nor a Battering Ram when he's got the Ball...But he's built Strong, just the same ~ strong enough, combined with his remarkable capacity to Rapidly Read & React to the Game, that he's adept at either endeavor.
No considerable Weaknesses.
Able to stay on the Field, regardless of Down or Distance.
Above all: a nightmarish blend of Agility & Diagnostic Velocity who is equally deadly Running or Receiving.
My philosophical objections aside, it's gonna be damned hard for an Head Coach to take this kid off the Field.
