  1. Just like paying players, they've been doing it for years...............
  2. And two tackles holding.........................................
  3. Don't you know that everyone here is a coach , expert , or insider ?
  4. Thank you PTB and WDE ! Always refreshing to get solid info that isn't a regurgitation of another post.
  5. Finally a post worthy of response....! WDE!!!
  6. I'm pretty sure Robinson doesn't have home run speed either. Barber averaged 5.4 today, btw. I'd rather have a 5.4 yd average without 40 yard runs. Means he's getting good yardage every carry. Just before the half we were at 3.1 per carry.....I'm still happy we have him so don't get me wrong! Okay, but there is a difference between "we" and Peyton Barber. Not saying we can't use help, but nothing to complain about with PB. He's clearly the guy. Good grief . Why do people get so defensive ? I said I am happy we have Peyton on our team . As of now , I am ecstatic we have him. But it is a fact that he had 10 carries for 31 yards in the first half . All I'm saying is we will need more starting next week .

  8. While i am proud of Peyton , he just doesn't have break away speed . He is one hell of a tough runner and i thank God we had him today . But if we are gonna beat the big boys we're gonna need more than 3.1yds/carry . Somehow we have to get Jovon in the game .
  9. IMO, Jovon is more of a power back, Roc is more of a shifty back with speed and Peyton is a combination of all those skill sets. He is not as powerful as Jovon but he is shiftier. He is not as shifty as Roc but he is more powerful. When you throw in Peyton's pass catching and pass blocking ability, you have a RB that is a complete back with a nice combination of power, shiftiness and speed. That gives you a RB you can use on a wider spectrum of the playbook than the other 2. Nice. Reminds me a lot of CAP then. I personally think Peyton Barber is harder to tackle than CAP. The biggest difference between Tre Mason and CAP is that Mason could always run through that first tackler up the gut even when it wasn't there and still pick up two to three yards, while CAP typically went down upon first contact at the line of scrimmage when it was plugged up with defensive lineman. Gus runs that up the gut play a high percentage of times immediately after picking up the 1st down when he's really wanting to implement the HUNH. Heck, we've all seen him run that play back to back times on numerous occasions. And as much as it pains us to watch some times, that play is an obvious staple in this offense for the primary runningback and one specific play in particular that I think Barber will be better at than his predecessor. And I'm not saying that Peyton Barber right now is better than CAP, who of course is in his first NFL training camp with the Panthers. However, I do believe that before Peyton leaves Auburn, he'll be a better runningback than CAP was when his eligibility was done on the plains. I think the runningback rotation this season will be similar to when Gus was at Arkansas and had Darren McFadden, Felix Jones and Peyton Hillis, except I truly believe that he'll use all four of our runningbacks extensively. I could be terribly wrong, but I think this will be the first year we don't see one guy as the main stallion. I think we'll still lead the SEC in rushing, but I definitely sense that it will be more by committee considering that all four players are uber talented with each 'back possessing a unique skill set different than the next man up. Roc: Elusiveness, Shiftiness, Spin Move Jovon: Power, Short Yardarge, Red Zone Peyton: Combination back shiftiness/power and great hands Kerryon: All Purpose Back/Wildcat/Slot Receiver CAP broke plenty of tackles.....so I'm not sure if you're serious?
  10. He sounds like my niece's husband . Living life on a rival's board instead of spending time with his wife and kids .
  11. Flush please.....
  12. Can we just leave the offense on the field to play D?
  13. Well.....I would like to agree with you but I can't . I came from a family without any ties to the University . My fandom was born from not wanting to be one who conformed to the norm . All family that attended college went to bama .I decided that I didn't want to be a douche elitist at an early age . I didn't like the way they treated others and looked down their noses at others . I looked at Auburn and the way their people acted and that was what I wanted to be . Hence , an Auburn fan was born . By they way ...... This was 1972......
  14. Please go graze with your own kind....
