I don't think Sellers was an accident-- he's been crushing runner elsewhere. I don't know why the Skins have been so late experimenting with him as a Riggins type of back. He seems to be a valid short yardage guy and well as a running FB when Portis is playing, or even a backup for Portis.

Brandon and ARE are terrific, as is Moss. Time to give Campbell a shot at number one with the three of them on the field. Could be awesome.

Holdman's got to go, and we've got to stop wasting time in exhibition games with Cartwright. We know what he can do. Actually, I think (of the running backs) only Portis and maybe Sellers can rise about the ordinary.

According to the post game show (Bram mentioned it, I think, or maybe Kevin Sheehan), they are looking for ways to get CP rest without taking him out of the game. One way is to split him out wide and do a quick hand off to Mike Sellers. :rock:

Last year it all magically came together in the 4th quarter on a Monday night in Dallas and we woke up Tuesday morning 2-0.


Everyone just relax. It's only preseason. I might be somewhat concerned if we had a new head coach but we don't. We have Joe Gibbs, the greatest football coach of all time. We have the best coaching staff in football. They now what they're doing. Just trust them. We will be ready when the games start to count and once the real games start all this preseason stuff will be forgotten.

I don't actually know the numbers, but Gibbs' pre-season record is notoriously poor. Its a glorified scrimmage to Joe, and he couldn't care less if we win. He is more interested in guys getting real game looks, and be able to hit someone that is on an opposing team for a change.

And 1 TD. :up:

Edit:
BTW his receiving numbers are 38 rec. 360 yds. 13 TDs.

Pretty good to score a TD on more than 1/3 of your receptions, and 1/2 of your carries. I might also point out that when a play goes for a TD, the receiver/runner has gone the maximum yards allowable on the play.

the guys up front seemed to get really excited and block well on those three runs, it didn't look like he got touched at the line of scrimmage on a single one of them...

This shows that he's very effective near the goal line. He's definitely a guy I want on the field inside the 10.

I'm pretty sure that even his lineman didn't want to be in his way. That's why there were such gaping holes for him tio run through.

Mike Sellers is too much man in the backfield for any opposing defense.

I'm predicting 7-8 TDs for him this year, 3 from the goal line. :rock:

Especially when he gets to line up deep like a tail back... that's a big head of steam... I think he'd do better like that on a 3rd and 2 or 3, than as the full back on a quick handoff on 3rd or 4th and 1...

I think all will come from inside the 10, most from inside the 5.
