I'm confused about it also.I’m not about to complain about McDaniels but I am legitimately curious why they can’t get him involved in passing game given their proclivity to run with him in the game.
I’m starting to think we have another Ridley type on our hands. Including playoffs, believe Michel now has 8 catches in 19 NFL games.
I'm also confused about why they ran it on first down like 8 times in a row (it seemed) at one point.
It seems that there's just only so much time in the day. Someone said yesterday that much of the practice time this week was spent on red zone. Josh et al. simply don't have unlimited time to work in other things, so we will sometimes see Michel into the brick wall multiple times.
There's nothing wrong with Michel. The line will get better. When JMC wants to get back to pounding the ball, they'll find a way to spend practice reps on it. It sure is frustrating now though.
And if Michel as receiver doesn't materialize soon, then maybe he just can't do it. I'm not ready to assume that yet
