Hello, I'm Laurence Owen and this is Colt Law now, so we have a little bit of information going on.
So Frank Reich has shown inherent respect towards Marlon Mack.
As many of you know, Jonathan Taylor was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts.
They even moved up into the second round.
Orwell moved up in the second round to get to the I believe, the 41st pick of the NFL draft to grab Jonathan Taylor Johnson Taylor by many.
As you know, uh, was seen as the best running back in this draft.
Many comparisons toe like, say, Kwan, Barkley and Adrian Peterson.
But, you know, despite the selection of Taylor, Frank Wright has shown inherent respect because of the way Mac has been handling the situation.
He says there's definitely inherent respect for the starter returning, Uh, and that's the way I see this.
I see it as a 11 punch.
The way the league is gone in the way role playing has been evaluated in our league.
It's made it prominent.
Look at a guy like the mines.
We talk about Marlon and Jonathan, But what about my team? He's such a good third down back and that he'll play a prominent role in that.
And in some ways, Hinds the starter.
He's a role playing starter.
When Wright told Matt immediately as they were picking Jonathan Taylor that they were picking another running back in the second round, they moved up to grab him.
Marlon, Matt Response.
You know, his response wasn't something like, you know, Melvin Gordon of Well, you're going to give me a on extension right now where I'm gonna hold out.
No, Marlon, Max.
Marlon Mack is a team first type running back with an incredibly good way of going about things.
He's team first.
He wants to help a team win, and that is the kind of locker room presence you want from players, especially with their touching the ball as many times as Marlon.
Matt touches it now, many years going to say, Hey, you know what doesn't matter what kind of person Marlon Mack is Jonathan Taylor still that much better.
He should be getting the carries over Marlon Matt, no matter what that you know, probably in training camp Johnson Taylor will take over running back one, or Jonathan Taylor will grab it.
You know, early early in the season as he shows that he sat much better than Marlon.
Matt. Now it's and that's quite possible.
That is quite possible, but we all must realize.
But there's things that Johnson Taylor does not do well, that Moreland Matt does very, very well.
You could check that out on YouTube on my breakdown, the Jonathan Taylor, but I'm just gonna throw a few things out at you, all right.
Number one Jonathan Taylor was never known for going outside the tackles on his runs.
He ran right up the gut, right between the guards almost every time he touched.
He never deviated from the play that was called Never didn't matter if that hole was stuff that that line was crushed with a bunch of bodies.
He just lowered his head on his shoulder, trying to push and get an extra yard or two.
He never, almost never.
I think I saw him break out twice in like three games that I watched, like take off, go outside the tackles breaking from the sidelines, he looked.
He's kind of the French Gore style runner, where he looks for that tiniest seem that he possibly can between blockers.
It tries to squeeze through it now in short yardage situation, goal line situation.
Obviously, that is a very important thing, but outside of the outside of the red zone, you want to get as many yards as possible.
Barlun Mac is great at that, Marlon.
Matt can take it between the tackles.
I mean, he was like third in the NFL last year and the year before in yards after first Contact.
But the thing that made him so dangerous was if the whole wasn't there, he was able to break it to the outside and pick up huge yards by going towards a sideline by using his lateral quickness and his agility.
And don't forget, Marlon has moves on top of moves.
He's got sidesteps, he's got spin move, he's got stiff arms, He's got whatever it takes and he doubles up on him.
We've seen him do double sidesteps.
We've seen him to double spin, move.
We've seen him take a straight up, defensive in and stiff harm him straight to the ground on his way to the end zone.
All right, Marlin Mac is no little petty running back that you could just throw off the decide and say, Who cares? We have Jonathan Taylor.
Don't get me wrong.
Jonathan Taylor is bigger, Faster, stronger.
Johnson Taylor average 6.
7 yards per carry in college, And that says a lot, considering that Jonathan Taylor had so many carries in college like 750 carries in college.
Right, when you average 2000 yards in your three seasons in college per year average, there's there's something to raise an eyebrow at.
But it's obvious Jonathan does not have either the ability or the want to to go laterally when a whole, it's not there on the offensive line at the at that line of scrimmage, something else we must take in consideration.
Marlon Matt, his 1st 3 years of the NFL, has had 535 carries, two fumbles.
Last year alone, he had 247 Carey's zero fumbles.
Jonathan Taylor, on the other hand, over his three year College career three years, 16 bumbles, 16 bumbles.
He had five fumbles last year alone.
Now everyone knows if you follow the Colts that a lot of people really like Wilkins.
But everybody seen what happened to Wilkins once he dropped the football on the ground.
His carries disappeared for games at a time whenever he dropped the ball on the ground.
Jonathan Williams has to shore that up Now Don't get me wrong.
Tom Rathmann, The running back coat for the Indianapolis Colts, is a very good coach.
He practices two things, most importantly, one holding on to that football, making sure you don't drop it and to pass pro alright.
Marlon Mack has increased dramatically over last three years in Pass Pro Johnson.
Taylor is not known to be very good at Pass Pro, but he will have Tom Rathmann teaching him how to pass pro.
My personal opinion in this matter is you're going to see a lot of two running backs on first and second and third down with the Indianapolis Colts going into this because of the stable of running backs of the Colt half.
Think about this.
Could you imagine Philip Rivers under center in pro formation with Johnson Taylor behind him to his left, Marlon Mack behind him to is right.
Could you imagine him doing a read option, looking over, if if the deep answers crushed in on the line, then he fakes the handoff Johnson Taylor up the middle and pitches it to Marlon Mack.
So he does a nice little power sweep to the outside to gain lots of yard because everybody's crushed in the center.
If they're spread out to prevent Marlon Mack from doing that, they hand that ball off the Jonathan Taylor right up the gut and watch him powers way for five or 678 yards.
That is something that I expect to see a lot from the Indianapolis Colts this season.
The courts are not going to just stop feeding Marlon Mack just because they have a running back with Jonathan Taylor.
When you have when Marlon Mack is one of the better ah talents on this Colts roster and you want to put the best talent on the field, you can period.
That includes having two running backs.
That's fine, if that includes having three running backs, that's what? Go look at teams like San Francisco and Baltimore.
You've seen Baltimore have three running backs on the Fuel at the same time.
Why? Because that's where the strength of that that team is.
That same with San Francisco.
Well, the Colts are no different.
They have great running back corps, maybe one of the best running back stables in the NFL.
So you want to put the best that you can on that field at once.
There will be times when you'll see Marlon Mack, Jonathan Taylor sitting in the backfield and the he minds on the fuel the same time, may be sitting in the slot position or something.
Three running backs on the field at the same time.
Why? Because that is where the talents that now, that's not to say that we don't have channeled elsewhere.
Obviously, we have T Y Hilton.
We have Michael Pittman, Junior and Paris.
Campbell is now healthy and has been running routes and stuff for the last two months.
And we can't forget about Jack Doyle, right and Trey, that we picked up in the off season from Chicago, who was the Phillies special tied in back in the Super Bowl.
We've got Carolyn and oh my God, could you imagine having Tray and Doyle on the field? That's a big formation, right? That Paschal at wide receiver because he's proven last year that he could be a reliable target.
But he's also one of the best run blocking wide receivers in the NFL.
And then you got to good blocking tight ends up front and pro formation, with Marla Mac and Jonathan Williams sitting there.
That's a stud formation that a lot of good things to come out of.
So just because you think the Johnson Taylor is with the Indianapolis Colts don't necessarily immediately assume that he's taking the lion's share of the load.
Doesn't necessarily mean it's gonna happen.
That doesn't even necessarily mean that Marla Max outdoor end of the season, Marlon.
That could be a smart guy.
He might realize, Hey, I get a lot of my stuff because of the offense of line.
I'm with the team that is looking to be long term good with Super Bowl aspirations.
I got a great coach and Frank Reich, who's able to scheme and do place that allows for multiple people to have multiple successful seasons, he may want to be like, You know what? I'll take a team friendly deal.
He's already shown that his team friendly in the locker room and in his personality.
Maybe he will accept the team friendly deal.
Take, you know, a contract three or four years for maybe, or maybe 2 to 4 years for anywhere between four and $6 million a year.
I can see that for Morland.
Man, could you imagine having that kind of a running back stable for an extended period of time? Come on, man.
This is something that you, anyone that's a Colts fan needs to be excited about.
It needs to be pushing that narrative.
Marlon Mack is a sure handed running back with great lateral quickness.
Is his top end super super fast to where he could break away from corners and safeties at any time? No, he's not Jonathan William Jonathan Williams has that speed.
What Marlon Mack has is the ability to be out in the open, fueled and make multiple people missed at once.
Jonathan Taylor has the ability to make one guy miss and run over multiple people.
But if he gets caught in the middle of group of people someone's tackling.
Granted, he's gonna carry some people for a few after yards, but moral not to show the ability to have that lateral quickness and agility to be able to make multiple people miss in a row.
That's just a dynamic combination dynamic, and the Colts need to use this and harnessed this throughout the 2020 season.
Could make a very dangerous team to deal with.
I mean, we all seen how the coal to be cared.
The city last year, right? Run the **** ball With the combination of Marlon back Johnson, Taylor, he mines they could run a **** ball down everybody's throat.
No matter how good that defense is.
It wouldn't matter if it's New England's defense.
If it's Baltimore's defense.
If it Chicago's defense, right, Denver's San Francisco's, they still be successful running the football.
This kind of combination with Frank, right, drawn up the place.
And if they're not because they're bringing up safeties who remember, it's a read option.
And, uh, Philip Rivers is not afraid to throw that football.
We all know this now.
