It’s a moot point, but I want to play devil’s advocate for a moment on Royce Freeman’s behalf. I get what the numbers say, he’s not as productive as he was touted to be coming out of college. It’s seems to me that he’s been utilized entirely wrong for his skillset. He’s built like the guy that pounds the rock down defenses throats, like he did at Oregon. The Broncos haven’t been in the position to do that offensively in his short tenure. Instead, he’s been asked to hit the flat on passes and run more c gap rushes over slamming gaps a and b. I see him as a short yardage/goaline weapon to slam the line and open a gap for Lindsey and Gordon in I, offset I, and pistol formations. Basically a converted fullback. Which is perfect for a guy who’s only had 1 fumble in two years. Am I way off base and missing something fundamental, or is his underachievement less on what he can do physically and more to do with schemes asking him to do things he’s simply not built to do effectively?
