I think Reggie will do fine. He isn’t an every down back, but he doesn’t need to be. He will be the homerun threat and he is quite good at that. He is a great reciever out of the backfield, they just need to stop trying to run him between the tackles.
It’s funny how coaches who get paid millions fail to notice really obvious shit like this that every fan, no matter how drunk, can see.
Actually I give my football insight credit to fantasy football. Before fantasy football, I watched the Denver Broncos and the playoffs. I could care less about other teams. Now that I have played FF for going on 6 years, I know all the rosters, I know players strengths and weaknesses. I know how guys should be and should not be used. The game is just so much more fun when you really immerse yourself into it.
Similar, but I’m going to give a lot of credit to Madden. The game, that is. Not the guy that I once heard explain the “unabated to the QB” rule by starting off with “unabated…now that’s a big word, thats like…‘mayonnaise,’ that’s the biggest word I know.”
Seriously, from learning how man vs. zone vs. zone/man defenses work, to whose responsibility a back or WR becomes when a team blitzes, to what exactly a play-action fake is supposed to accomplish, video games go a LONG way in showing somebody who never played organized football just what the hell those guys are going out there. Which, I guess, is why a lot of teams use them for educational purposes these days.
Fantasy is of course great for knowing just who, on teams you don’t follow, can hurt you and how when they line up against your team.
