Add in he needs to change the blocking scheme for Howard to be effective... Not the ideal situation.wab wrote:Olsen was NOT a fit in Martz's offense. But we all saw what a dope Martz was and knew he wasn't a long term solution as an offensive playcaller for the Bears. So people were upset that a cornerstone player was being traded away because he was a bad fit in an offense being run by a guy that was only going to be around for a year or two.
That's not the case with Howard. Nagy isn't a short term fix.
Also...another difference between Olsen and Howard is that Howard physically can't do what this offense requires from him. In Olsen's case, he was never really given the opportunity to prove he could or couldn't (he could).
I like Howard as a person/player but I've never been a huge fan of how he runs. Personally, I like scat backs or a hybrid like Miles Sanders... Much more fun to watch than a bruiser as a #1 back and a lot more difficult to gameplan for especially with all the other tallent we have on this offense. Don't get me wrong we need a bruiser but a 3rd string type that does some short yardage plays and closes out games.
