Isaiah Crowell Sits & Watches

   With a blink of an eye, Isaiah went missing against Kentucky. Tweaked an ankle in the first possession and he was done for the day. His Saturday consisted of 2 carries. Sat and watched from the bench the rest of the way. Barely talking to anyone.
   What a disappointment.
   And the 'Dogs Offense struggled without him.
   Must have been more than a tweak, right? How could a competitor sit there and watch his offense struggle like that, if it were just a tweak? Got to figure a competitor would have felt the urge to tape it up tight and go. Tough it out.
   So, his ankle must be hurting... or he's just not that much of a competitor. And if it's hurt that bad, how could he be ready to go on Saturday against Georgia Tech? Just saying.
   Brandon Harton is to respected, because of his path...walked on, earned a scholarship, plays hard and he's tough. But he's obviously not the full-time answer at RB. He's getting thrown around out there, at 165 pounds. He can help, but carrying the load is an issue. 
   Can't count on Carlton Thomas. Ken Malcome has been slow to develop. And it's a crying shame that Richard Samuel got hurt, because he could carry the load right now.
   I thought Crowell needed to finish strong, for the Bulldogs to handle GT AND the bully from the West... today I'm re-evaluating that idea.

    We have to sign Marshall - HAVE to get a running back! Absolutely hate if for Richard Samuel - he was just about to become the total go-to guy and character leader we need. Crowell probably won't return for next season - fear that he will end up in trouble over the summer. Thomas is just a sore that demoralizes the team (especially combined with Crowell's desire to enjoy the game from the bench). Harton can't hold on to the ball and Malcome is too unreliable. WE NEED HELP! However, gotta love Coach Richt - HE IS THE MAN! Reverend Thomas Johnson - Class of 73

    Certainly Isaiah Crowell has not shown the competitive edge, nor the toughness required for success as a running back in the SEC. I had hoped to see improvement from him as the year progressed but that has not been the case. Richard Samuel, on the other hand, really had some pop in the Florida game. The Dawgs could use him right now. We all know it will be difficult for Murray and the passing game if the backs are ineffective running the ball. Tech will be a hand full--much tougher to beat than Kentucky, and we don't want to even think about how difficult the Championship game will be without a running game. I am really proud of the defense and have a lot of confidence in the future with this defensive coaching staff.

    You are spot on on this one. I think Richt has a little more trash to take out. the word on Crowell out of high school was lazy and a prima donna. BINGO! I though it funny that not a single player was talking to him or even sat by him the whole game. He is not a team player.

    Does Crowell have maturity issues or toughness issues or all of the above?
