Veteran Starter w/Big Long Term Deal
I am a big fan of Sony. But you are exaggerating when you absolve Sony of any responsibility in the problems with the running game. Sony doesn’t have even an average ability to make tacklers miss. He is not as effective as Burkhead, who is not reminding us of Dion. I think the running game and Sony will improve. It can’t get any worse.
I put about 95% of that on the line. It's tough to break tackles when two guys are meeting you behind the LOS.
I saw a play last week where it looked like a hole quickly opened up in front of Sony, but he instead kept stretching to the outside where the play was (presumably) designed.
Other than that, I don't think Burkhead would have gotten a single yard that Sony failed to get.
