Christine Michael

Recommended Posts

From the FBG Upgrades/Downgrades email:

RB Christine Michael, DAL - (waiver wire: 7-15%) - Michael got one measly unsuccessful short yardage carry, but he was up, Joseph Randle was ineffective and a near goal line fumble seemed to draw the ire of the Dallas coaches. If Michael can bring his physical urgent style to this offensive line, their blocking could become invigorated. Michael is still a textbook talent/situation/opportunity hold until he either fails on the field, Randle truly hits for an entire game, or Michael is released.

Hold, Mortimer, Hold!

I really do enjoy the FBG content, I read it to read about football, but as for "If Michael can bring his physical urgent style to this offensive line, their blocking could become invigorated ..." ... how is this going to transpire, exactly? The linemen are going to become infused with the Spirit of Michael and start blocking better just because he's back there?

I think the idea is that if Michael got some playing time and was able to make better use of the holes the o-line is creating, they might be inspired as opposed to feeling like they're busting their ### for nothing because Randle/Dmac aren't good enough to take advantage if their efforts.

I hope not because that'd be bull####. I hope they mean that he takes better advantage of holes so (a) the O-line just looks better and (b) they have more success thus get to run more thus pile up more yards and big plays (and thus look better).

O linemen have always been inspired by physical rbs that break tackles and whatnot. It's not a new concept. Only natural that it would fire them up.

At least we should have resolution soon or this year. I've had him since his rookie draft in dynasty. If he can't make it this year, I'm off the wagon. Gave him benefit of the doubt behind Lynch. Loved it when he landed in Dallas. Sucks the passing game took the blow it did because now the D can stack the box all day. He's clearly behind Randle and DMac and I've thought Randle has looked good in spurts but it's now or never for CMike for me.

10+ carries this week. I think the over under should be 14. Joe is in the doghouse. Darren runs like a 40 year old and they need him in the Dunbar role, something Chris has not worked on at all as I understand it, and also something Darren has down pat as he competed for the job.

Fantasy wise this could be big for Darren. New England figures to have a big lead forcing Dallas into the 4 wide sets that have been featuring Dunbar.

he won't get over 5. And I am probably being generous.

it's more likely they wait until after the bye to give him 10+, at which point the sky is the limit

Other than Philly and teams playing on TNF I don't think any teams practice on Thurs. Wed-Friday with a walk through on Sat is the normal routine.

For actual news here's a quote from the never quiet Stephen Jones:

"Jones on replacing Lance Dunbar: Christine Michael's gonna be able to step up, play a role. We'll look around, see what's available.

http://www.dallasnews.com/sports/dallas-cowboys/20151005-cowboys-vp-dez-bryant-update-sean-lee-expected-back-team-will-look-around-at-running-back.ece

I think Dunbar's injury provides a great opportunity for C-Mike. I could see Randle shifting to more of a passing down role with C-Mike eventually becoming the lead RB on early down work.

Dont be shocked to hear CMike is "assisisting" w/ the Scout Team..

Its a combination of factors..

CMike is the only back good for a whole mess of carrys (rest kinda duracell moment, after a handful)

The OLine needs work, doesnt matter whose running the ball..

Odds are somebody's going to post "CMike is only the RB3" He don't warrant first team reps..

That's it nothing more to see, because their just flat out guessing, but wanting to help...

Say it enough, and they believe their own bs.

Twitter should be reporting midweek practice info soon!

If ya gotta have the absolute latest? Id just post "Any News?" on the forum..

Why???

This is the kind of random speculation that keeps this thread going I guess. FWIW, Randle has 18 CAREER receptions. He's not really a 3rd down back kind of guy if you're looking for receiving. I guess if you consider college, he did have some receptions, but that's a whole different game. I'd say McFadden is much more likely to play on 3rd downs.

Dallas will be so far behind this weekend, I could see who ever the pass catching back is getting good numbers this week.

Looks like McFadden judging by last weeks game. However tough to say since the coaches were ticked at Randle, as Randle is a decent pass catcher, no Dunbar but good nonetheless.

THe only place I see CM working in this offense is goal line for the immediate future, if he can find positive yardage

I guess if you consider college, he did have some receptions, but that's a whole different game. I'd say McFadden is much more likely to play on 3rd downs.

Speculation, of course. Random? Not really. I said I could see it happening and what is FF without speculation.

I'm generally dismissive of McFadden and am speculating on his chances of being hurt and/or ineffective both being very high. Randle offers more elusiveness and play making ability and I also speculate that while he's never had the opportunity to catch a lot of passes as a pro, he has the ability. This is from his draft profile:

STRENGTHS

Productive back in the running and passing game. Possesses enough straight-line speed to eat up yardage when open lanes present themselves. Shows once wiggle in his game once past the line, gets would-be tacklers to lean the wrong way. Seems to fall forward a lot, and is adding weight to his frame each season to get stronger. Attacks targets as a blocker for bubble screens and two-back sets, also flashes the form and willingness to be an effective pass protector. Solid receiver on screens and over the middle; good hands to rein in wayward passes and his shifty hips make him elusive after the catch. Solid ball security, did not fumble in 251 touches in 2011.

So yes, I could see them shifting Randle to more of a 3rd down/receiving role while utilizing Michael more in an early down role.

"Rest kinda Duracell moment, after a handful" ?! I don't speak special Ed

I think, after reading it 4 times, he's saying CM is going to be the lead running back on the practice team because he is the best back and is so good he doesn't need to practice behind the offensive line and learn how they block. And anyone who says otherwise is foolish and guessing because they are just trying to help and nothing more. And if you want to find out the latest practice info, all you have to do is start a thread and name it "Any News?"

Amazingly, I think...after re-reading equipped with your translation, that you are actually right re. what he's saying. God bless you, because that was pure gibberish to me.
