    Ok he has had his chance several different times the past few games and has failed to punch it in. We might as well just hand it off to CJ when its first and goal to go until Greene gets back.

    I have no problem with Battle being the Goal line back... the problem I have is that lack of imagination by the OC to utilize him in ways to THROW OFF the defenders.

    When Battle is in... Titans are going to run. So... play-action, anyone..?


    I think it has happened, sparingly, and with good success.

    Or maybe do a shotgun/spread and do a draw with Battle. Every time we're at goaline, we're all bunched up to run down the middle. I agree though, we need better plays drew up from the OC.

    battle has proved he can run people over, best to put him in at the goal line and run the d over for the score!

    I mean like last week for example. CJ had like a 6 yard run then an 8 yard run to get us to the two and we take him out......He was rolling, there was no sense in taking him out.

    Same thing in baseball when a team will bring in a relief pitcher and he will strike the first 2 batters out then they will take him out for the third batter just to get the lefty lefty match up. So stupid.

    If a player is rolling you dont take him out!

    He has only punched it in once on numerous occasions from goal to go. Insanity=doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

    We should have milked the clock out with Battle during the texans game like we did towards the end of the jets. Might have been a different outcome.
