I’ve really dug into the Adam Gase RB “issues” and I’m beginning to think Drake was a bit of an outlier.
As Offensive Coordinator
2013 Denver: Knowshon Moreno - 19.1 Touches per game
2014 Denver: CJ Anderson - 24.9 Touches per game
2015 Chicago: Matt Forte - 20 Touches per game
As Head Coach
2016 Miami: Jay Ajayi - 21.75 Touches per game
So he has two season of perceived misuse with Drake and it feels like the whole community labeled Gase as a killer of value when it comes to RB, but I’m starting to think that’s a bit short sited.
Looking at that three year run from 13-15, and you get a clear picture of Gase using his backs in the passing game too… all three guys (Moreno, Anderson, and Forte) averaged 4.1 targets per game on top of a healthy number of touches on the ground.
I looked at how his offense operated too in relation to his team defense, and when he has a decent defense, his teams post solid rushing numbers… with a 2nd year QB in Darnold and Gregg Williams taking over an improved defense… I’m starting to think Bell may surprise in 2019…
Am I losing my mind?
