My thoughts on Sony Michel are, I don't think he's 100% yet. Think about it, he missed most of training camp with an injured knee, then he finally gets going, and tweaks his knee again, missing 3 games total. So he's 21st in the NFL in rushing, despite missing 3 games (3 1/2 really, left the Chicago game before half time). Think about that for a second, he's never really been 100% the whole season. So it's REALLY impressive, what he's done so far. Almost 600 yards rushing (586 yards) in his first 7 1/2 games, at not full health. I don't think Michel has been able to show his explosiveness we saw when he played at Georgia. I think it's obvious because of his knee. In college, though he was never known as a speed demon (not slow though), he always had that elusiveness and quick cutting ability that led to some long runs. I don't think the injury has allowed for that. You see some smart running though, the patience, the power, the vision, and some decent jukes. But no explosiveness yet. BUT, I did notice during the Jet's game on Sunday, some of that is coming back. I noticed some slick jump cuts that had me psyched. And though he was known as the Lightning to Nick Chubb's Thunder at Georgia, Michel is showing decent power. I believe they said 66 of his 133 yards came after contact. Also, he forced 6 missed tackles with his elusiveness, the most all season. I think he's finally getting healthy, I'd guess he's probably at 80-85%. Watch out when he's at 100%, the explosiveness will return, and we may get some long runs added to his already good 4.6 yards per carry. I'm really psyched about Sony Michel, I think he's gonna be a really good back in the NFL. Overall, not the flashiest back, not the fastest, or shiftiest, or strongest, but he has a mix of all 3 qualities, and I'm excited to see what he can do the rest of the year. I LOVED when we drafted Michel, he was my favorite player in the entire draft for the Patriots, never thought we'd draft him, but was beyond thrilled when we did, because I knew he'd be perfect fit for the Pats.
