Once he shifted to edge he was better but still…
And disruptive to bring a ball playing edge on to replace a runner. Could potentially work as a ball playing 13 but not when we already have too many cooks in the kitchen
I wouldnot say he stifled Talakai… we weren’t using him properly before Wade came on
What runner are you referring to or are you talking hypothetical ?
I didn't think Wade was that bad he was ok, his defense was pretty good, his runs were decent. Yes at some point he was gunna get in the way but more regular players got in each others ways today as well or weren't where they needed to be. We needed another forward out there and today that was Wade. Williams went down early
Prob a good thing Wade isn't trying to push attacking passes or kick a whole bunch, maybe that will come later, maybe we wont want or need it to come later. though he did get a LB assist
He stifles that whole side.. what’s worked for us this year is playing fast and direct then hitting holes or passing out the back.
Wade destroys all of that
I think not having a dedicated 80 minute fullback or 80 min dedicated halfback hurt our attack more than Wade being out there cause even when we shifted the other side away from Wade our attack didn't have its usual rhythm or flow and we had less options. Raiders defended very very well though
