One thing that Marty puts a lot of stock in is not making mistakes and keeping your hands on the ball.T10 said:Yes he played on special teams, but not much on offense. With the trading deadline coming up, do you guys think that we did that on purpose to save him from injury? I for one don't want to see him go anywhere.
Could be. Or it might be he felt Turner wasnt needed in this game.WonderSlug said:One thing that Marty puts a lot of stock in is not making mistakes and keeping your hands on the ball.
After Turner dropped several kickoffs, Marty probably felt that he wasn't bringing his A game today and decided to keep him under wraps.
Yeah, I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of TnT in KC next Sunday.Concudan said:Could be. Or it might be he felt Turner wasnt needed in this game.
I hope we manage to keep both.WonderSlug said:Yeah, I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of TnT in KC next Sunday.
Turner to me is in the mold of Shaun Alexander and Larry Johnson. A big bruising north-south runner.
L.T. is our slasher, like Marshall Faulk and Reggie Bush.
LT's 'fumble' was the result of a well placed hit that knocked the ball out.exodus said:I was not happy with botched returns. Turner is only going to get limited opportunities in a game and he has to make his impact then. He was being complacent and I hope Marty gives him time to recover.
LT put the ball on the ground and I cried a little bit. LT has earned the respect to keep playing no matter what. Turner hasn't.
It was a lucky hit, but it still bums me to see that LT lost the ball. It's not like he doesn't protect it, which is why I was sad to see that happen. I don't know about LT still running late in the game. Maybe he was just having a career day and wanted to keep pumping his stats or something. :icon_shrug:WonderSlug said:LT's 'fumble' was the result of a well placed hit that knocked the ball out.
Turner's botchs yesterday were all him. Nobody was even close to him when he did them.
So, as I said, Marty likely sensed Turner's head wasn't as into the game as it normally is and he didn't bring his A game, thus the very limited action yesterday. Why else would they still be running LT late in the 4th quarter with a 22+ point lead?
