Both Ronald Jones and Leanord Fournette bring good to the table — tough running and speed. Fournette has been given opportunities and has taken advantage of them — that is why he is the starter.
He is definitely the number one back, in my estimation.
Against the Eagles, Fournette had good stats!
Rushing: (22) carries for (81) yards, (3.7) yards per carry, (2) Touchdowns, and a long of (20) yards.
Receiving: (6) catches for (46) yards and a long of (18).
Watching how he runs has been fun as of late; when he sees contact is about to occur, he lowers his head and creates opportunity after contact—usually gaining extra yards in the process.
I wish that Leanord would have stayed with the number (28), but I think I’ll get used to the number (7).
Let’s hope that his solid play continues — and even improves as the season goes on, especially for the playoff run!
I am really looking forward to the Bears game at the Ray Jay! As usual, Go Bucs!
