I really like Lamar Miller. He can score from anywhere on the field. He does need to catch the ball better. But Miller is a very exciting running back.
But, the difference in Daniel Thomas this year to the last two years is night and day. Thomas looks good. He's bigger, stronger and plays faster. He blocks well. He runs hard behind his line. He cuts ONE TIME ONLY which is an issue I have with most young Running Backs.
I do feel Miller has one last game to earn the starting RB position. Either way, he will get an abundance of carries. As I feel, we will run a two-pronged rushing attack anyway.
At the beginning of training camp, I said that Miller would be the starter. I agreed with everyone who stated this to be so. And, even when we heard how well Thomas was doing in camp, it seemed unlikely he would unseat Lamar Miller.
And for those of you who think I sound like a know-it-all :p - I say this with my head down - I WAS WRONG!
Thomas has earned the starting RB spot thus far in preseason.
