    I agree. The dude is a Lendale White/Ricky Bell type of running back. He can be the big bruiser our offense needs.

    He had some impressive runs late in the fourth. The guy is a fast moving wrecking ball.

    Not sure why he is continually held out.

    Especially when we need to get 1 -3 yards. This guy is “Too Special” to be on the bench! Even if #29 & #7 are running the ball well

    I agree. After the long run that was called back, I was yelling ‘we got Thunder back!’
    Put him in the second half when the defense is tired. They won’t want to tackle him. He and Vavae should be in on all third and shorts. It would be a thing of beauty.

    SC (#7) doesn’t even get enough touches for me.
    I get VM (#29) is the clear #1 now, but you have a realistic three deep at RB and VM gets 85% of the touches?
    SC gets the other 15% and those are limited because I seen a LOT of empty sets last night.

    I agree. Why is this beast of a player not in the rotation?

    Yes, he needs to be part of the game plan. A 'Tyler Rose" type of back.

    I loved Carr’s td run. I kept yelling to give him the ball....vindication!

    Agree with all the comments above. The guy was a wreaking-ball, busting through tackles, and dragging the tired defenders for extra yards. He adds a nice, new dimension to our attack, and he needs to get his share of plays. I saw, who I assume were his parents, based on jerseys w/ name on the back, at last weeks game. They had to enjoy what they saw last night!

    Great runner. Said so in Spring. Pass pro is likely what's holding him out of a big role in the rotation at this point.

    But it will come around and you'll see more of him.

    If Ronald Jones can learn it, anyone can.

    Stepp should be the ball carrier in short yardage goal line or third downs at a minimum. That guy is an absolute bulldozer. We could have one if the top RB groups in the country.

    He'll learn it faster than RoJo too. It's just he has Vae ahead of him who has a strong all around game, and a healthy Carr. Stepp will be stepping out though. It's only a matter of time.

    especially when we need a yard or two...

    senseless.

    I don't mind throwing the ball on 4th & 1, yet with a guy like Stepp to earn the yards after contact, wear defense down, or grind out short yards, we should implement him into the offense.

    So what if he doesn't have the pass catching ability, he is a bulldozer!

    We saw how valuable, dynamic, and unpredictable we can be when we play our depth -- we won the game by opening up options such as Devon Williams, Munir McClain, Drake London, et al. ALL saw action and made very tough catches, all 3 scored a 1st Down I believe.

    Stanford was like 'who are these guys?'.

    Late in the first half you could actually see the wheels starting to come off Stanford’s bus. They had some uncharacteristic penalties just before half

    And us? How many times do you need to get called for "Hands to the Face" before you learn to keep your fricken' hands down and just rush the passer? We kept two of their drives alive with that crap.

    Stanford is not known for undisciplined football. That was my point. I wasn’t surprised by the calls against us. I’ve come to expect them
