You might be right about that but I didn't see him break any tackles either. So while one guy might not have brought him down he did hold him until help arrived. Given the scrubs he was playing against that is not what I expected from him and if he played against the starters I think they easily would have brought him down.Originally Posted by ShawnMedGuy
Last pre-season he was a beast and constantly broke tackles and made something out of nothing. I was hoping to see the same thing this year. We really need a short yardage/goal line back. Mendy doesn't appear ready to assume that mantle so I was hoping that Russell would fit the bill. Unfortunately his performance in the game didn't look like he was up to the challenge. However, it was only one pre-season game and there is time for both backs to improve.
