Small workload on Sunday but I liked the way he ran the ball and he did a good job not going down on initial contact. He was pretty good in college at Arizona, totaling 3,263 rushing yards on 587 carries along with 18 touchdowns. He also caught 62 passes for 487-yards and 5-touchdowns.

I feel like if he can build off that and continue to play well, we've got a pretty deep group that should give us a pretty solid ground game this season.

Definitely adds a change of pace to our backfield. It'll be interesting to see what happens when Harris comes back. Michel, Burkhead, White, Harris, Taylor, do you keep all 5.

Honestly, I don't want to lose Taylor, but everyone ran well Sunday, I'm a big Burkhead fan as well.

I'd like to see if he can run routes and catch the ball out of the backfield. If so, then I think White has got some serious competition.

I honestly thought he looked the best of the rbs Sunday. How much of that had to do with better blocking and what not i have no idea but he def ran hard and well.

JJ, Harris, Burk, Sony, Cam... lotsa different options. To me, it all comes down to an improved OL. OL cool, running cool.

yes VERY impressed by JJ....remembered seeing him in college where he was incredibly dynamic and was a dual threat.....he looked great in his time in there last week and I think he will gradually contribute a lot to our offense....very excited to watch him play!

Taylor touched the ball 5 times out of a total of 9 offensive snaps resulting in 6.4 yards per touch, 2 first downs and he caught his pass via Cam.


Id like to see Taylor get more snaps and to see him receive the ball in space like in a bubble screen. Darren Sproles was about the same stature as JJT.
