BB always says that a player isn't in game shape if they are only practicing and not playing in the game, because of the speed of the actual game versus practice. This along with most backs needing multiple carries before they can get comfortable in the game, makes me concerned if we do need to call on Laurence. i read something in an article that said in college Laurence needed 10 carries before he was comfortable. I have heard this previously from other backs, the last one being Dillon. It appears that it is like warming up the car motor, and how much better it runs when it is warmed up. What little football I played in school found this to be true, but that is so far removed from the pros it not even funny. I also don't claim to have any coaching experience. I have just watched games on television, like alot of you, and base my speculation on that.
