    Samuels

    They need to use him more the Conner and not for the fact that Conner fumble. I personally think he is the all round better back anyways. Point why they need to use him, is with a non existent running game at least he would help out Rudolph a lot for dump offs when nobody else is open down field.

    Re: Samuels

    I think he's the better guy for what the offense is trying to do. He's a pass catching back, and we're a passing offense

    Re: Samuels

    So less than a year ago, losing Bell was no big deal because not only RBs easy to replace, but Conner was just as good if not better. That was apparently both rushing and catching the ball. Now it is time to bench him for Samuels?

    Seems kinda reactionary.

    RBs are a dime a dozen. No need to commit long-term to anybody if they aren't getting the job done. And Bell is presently sucking in NY.

    Obviously, some of the reactions of last year on this message board were a bit reactionary.

    Rushing stats were almost the same between 2018 and 2017, therefor Conner is just as good as Bell.

    Re: Samuels

    No don't bench Conner.

    But Get Samuels more touches. Zero touches is ridiculous. Even just 4-5 to see what he can do.

    89 touches. 5.5 yds/touch = 17 games

    4.6 rush ypc

    3 receiving TDs

    Wouldn't hurt to get him the ball especially if Vance will be out and Grimble sucks.

    From bitter to reactionary...lol. I’d trade Conner and his current 3.3 YPC to the Jets for Bell...and his 4.0 YPC from 2017 lol.

    Not using Samuels yesterday was just plain stupid and i'd like to hear the stupid ass coaching decision on why they didn't and used snell instead. Samuels is clearly the better back.

    Re: Samuels

    Samules is a weapon, use him. Fitchtner's play calling was pretty poor. I was disappointed. If Ben's in there, okay go 4 or 5 wide. If Ruldoph in in there, you have to call a game to what he does best. It took a half of football to figure that out.
