Run blocking was horrific and he still managed to hit 4.0 ypc. He was excellent in the Bengals game too, probably our best player. Carr faded as the season went on while Jacobs got better. He wasn't much of a receiver coming into the NFL and last year he was 5th amongst RB in receptions despite missing 2 games. And I'd phrase that as "Carr lost weapons as the season went on and Jacobs got healthier". Not much changed for Jacobs through the year except for himself. He finally showed up when we needed it. Unfortunately, I wonder why he wasn't doing it all year or the last couple years for that matter. We can blame the oline last year all we want, but he clearly was better at the end of the season with the same oline. Drake and even Barber seemed way more explosive with the same oline throughout the season. He has to put it all together this year or he's gone. He might be gone regardless. The Patriot way is to not pay running backs. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
