    Default Can we all get behind Jordan Howard now?

    I don't know why, but he's always the first player I hear people throw around trade scenarios for, or complain about his performance, or not being a "good fit" for the offense...etc.

    Can't we all just get behind the guy for once? He's done everything he's been asked to and even worked out the pass catching issues everyone was sooooo worried about last year. Like, you cannot have a back that cannot catch anymore was peoples primary reason for burning the guy, and he got it figured out in one off-season.

    And quit calling him fat!

    Are you sure you are on the right forum for this? 1/2 will be no, 1/4 will be yes, and 1/4 will start personal fight with omlet.

    The issue is whether Nagy is behind him not us. Doesn't matter what we think if Nagy doesn't want to use him.

    I can run faster than Howard, so why would I stay behind him?

    Get behind him until they draft his replacement? Sounds great.

    He is not a special player

    He is not even the best RB on the team

    He is gone in 2020

    I am not sure we need to really defend him. It looks like we are going to grind him for one more year and let him leave.

    Howard is very effective if used properly. Problem is that use isn't our norml O. If Nagy can find integration without showing his hand, Howard is still a big asset.

    Nagy isn't even 100% behind Howard. If he was, Mizzell would be getting carries...

    Maybe not anymore but he sure as heck was in 2016-17 with foxy. Back to back 1000 yards seasons are not easy to get.

    -Jordan Howard is the best RB we have watched since Walter Payton. His ability to stay on his feet and maintain balance is incredible.

    Get back to running him outside zone. He’s improving as a rcvr so set him up some more. Still the dude tends to run out bounds giving up yards.

    there's nothing wrong with Jordan Howard. what's wrong is the over reliance on Trubisky to throw the ball. if he's having a bad day, and you have no running game to speak of, it's going to make it worse on him. it's inexcusable that with rushing talent like Howard and Cohen that the RBs are getting less than 15 carries a game.

    it's the inverse of John Fox 2017 where Howard's arm was about to fall off and your rookie 1st round QB is throwing the ball 10 times a game. it's batshit.

    I think it's logical you continue to use him until his contract is up. he's already here, he's not going to have monster trade value, just use him and move on if you don't like him.

    I am behind him 100% and always have been. Argued with some noob until I was blue in the face that we shouldn't trade him.

    Every offense needs someone to get the tough in between the tackles yards. If they move on from him, they better make sure they have a replacement for getting those yards

    Your right, I hyperbolized his value. I will wear that.

    This season showed us he is a grinder. He just doesn’t have a special skill set.

    The Bears are not going to give someone 25 carries and have them grind out 100 yards. They are going to throw the ball 60+% of the time.

    They need/want someone who can create more explosive plays because they are not going to run as many plays.

    That is why Mizzell gets carries, because their is a better chance that he goes 40 than Howard. (Both are tiny percentages)

    He's a good runningback, but not an elite one.

    He has one elite trait, and thats vision. He benefited from the BEST interior offensive line in the NFL his first two years(with long and sitton healthy). You guys realize he had 3 probowlers blocking for him? He would constantly go untouched going into the second level only to get tackled by a safety or linebacker. Even on his breakaway runs he didn't have the speed or acceleration to take it home.

    JHOW is a good back, but lets not act like the dude is elite.

    Has Mizzel EVER in the his career had a big play? Howard has at least had some 20 yarders lol
