The Running Game

White is doing his job...I like what he brings to the table.

Lewis is playing spot duty. He is kinda fragile, so, I get it.

Burkhead is hurt. Incomplete...he has shown that he has skills.

Gilislee was signed to somewhat replace Blount...who was thought to be toast. Touchdown Mike tries hard...but, doesn't seem to break many tackles. He isn't even close to Blount size.

When will Burkhead be back healthy? Is he the missing link to get the running game in gear?

/random thoughts.

I think you’re selling Gillislee short a bit. He’s been pretty good when leaned on. I’d like to see 3rd and short be more automatic, especially when you roster a fullback, but that’s not all on the RB.

Agree. Gillislee's been pretty good the last couple of weeks: Averaging over 4.0 and seems to be hitting the hole with speed and power. Several of his first down runs have gone for 5+ yards putting the O in 2nd and short.

Different back to Blount, but I really like our backfield this year.

Agree. Lewis is quick as shit. I'd like to see him get some more carries. And obviously they didn't keep Bolden for his RB abilities, but he better get it together on ST or he won't have any value at all.

When Burkhead comes back, it'll be nice.

He is ok...at least he isn't fumbling it. So far...

RB has been the strength of this team. Gillislee weakness is getting those tough short yardage runs. That is the one area . We are really missing Blount .

Lewis is definitely getting quicker and better each week. It's been a long road for him, but he's getting back up there. The running game will be more important than ever for us this season. With Edelman out, Mitchell, fragile, Gronk in and out, we need those runners. James White combined with Amendola will cover for Edelman in the slot.

Lewis was the leading rusher Thursday. 7 carries, 53 yards.

The fact that the Patriots abandoned the run when they were gashing is a mystery to me.

I wish Lewis was used more...I like him. A lot.
