For those who keep saying "dont trust shanahan" they are right, but ...
#1) Dont trust Kubiak either. Anyone remember the pre-Foster days? Yeah, the apple dont fall far from the tree
#2) Once EITHER coach finds a back they like, the guy is both dependable and rock solid tier 1 stuff and is a must start/draft.
Has shanny found his guy yet? Absolutley no idea.
What i do know is Morris is just a guy and Royster is the most complete back on that roster. Ive watched him play in person, ive watched (some) of the games i havent.
We ahve plenty of other threads about Helu and Royster, we really dont need a Morris thread.
Morris was given a run out to see how he did behidn the 1st team OL. Theyve seen what he did against the stiffs last week & they have 3 RBs on the roster they could use at RB. They just needed to see what they have before they start thinking about cutdowns.
Dont read anything else into his start other than that.
He was pedestrian as it goes. One good play, nothing to add beyond that. Did he do enough to stick on the roster? Dont know. Do know hes not comeptition for Royster tho.
I totally disagree that he looked pedestrian. He looked really impressive to me. I don't know if he will make the team, but I like what I saw out of Morris more than what I have seen from Royster so far. I still won't draft him because of Shanny, but on almost any other team, I would take a flier on him.
