    Benny Snail football

    Maybe he is saving it for the regular season.

    Dude looked slow and had no moves.

    Did he ever break a tackle?

    I didn’t think he would be our closer when we drafted him but damn.. dude didn’t impress me at all.

    One thing that stood out when watching his highlight reel was the gaping wide holes the OL gave him to run through.

    Maybe he gets better with more reps but he was probably the biggest let down this preseason.

    I think he'll cut weight in the off season (like Bell and Conner). Hope that gives him some more speed.

    Didn't look good running the ball in games (although early preseason reports were pretty high on him IIRC)

    I’m not giving up faith in him just making an observation.

    When he got tackled on the edge I almost lost it. Dude has no burst or 2nd gear.

    break a tackle or 2 if you aren’t shifty or fast enough to outrun anyone.

    Isn't that what he was known for in college? Running over guys?.... welcome to the NFL Mr Snell...

    Samuels, Bell and Conner all looked much better than Snell has looked so far, even before cutting weight. I hope they didn't make a mistake
    drafting this guy because I think depth is needed at the RB position over the 16 games.

    Samuels and Conner look very good so far. But Snell has been a disappointment. No wiggle and no burst. If he has to cut 10 lbs to be half way
    decent, this is a lost season for him. I had some concern about him watching his tape because he seemed straightlinish and slow, but what
    was impressive is that seemed so determined and refused to be tackled.

    But he has seemed to go down without a lot of fight in the preseason. If he has a lot of pride, which I hope he does, he should be
    working with the coaches, watching tape and doing whatever he can to improve for the season.

    He sucks. He's a bum. They should escort him off the premises and toss all his personal belongings in the street. Him and that complete waste of a draft pick, Justin Layne.

    I think it was grinding teams down.

    Thing is, looking at his tape and he was running through some huge holes and rarely touched on the first or second level. Whoever the OL coach is at UK needs a job in the NFL.

    Hopefully he spends more time getting stronger and less time saying his name over and over again.

    Benny Snell needs to tell Benny Snail to wake up.

    That’s harsh. It’s still early. I think we are spoiled by the JuJu rookie season.

    Most rookies don’t look good their first year. It’s rare when they impress out of the gate.

    Have to agree, not very impressive performance this preseason.
    Doesnt break tackles and runs too high
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.
