I agree with this. He looked good from what we saw this past weekend.

Indeed, Samuels has been terrible so far. Looks like he's regressed a lot and he already wasn't the best RB on the roster.

well to be fair , samuels wasn't a great running back out of college. the problem is, which is often the case with the steelers, is they dont use him the way they should. you didnt see cowher trying to run sweeps with jerome bettis. a coaches job is to identify a players strengths , AND weaknesses and put them in positions to succeed. unfortunately neither tomlin or fichtner doesn't seem to do that very well.

on those off tackle plays when he gets the edge boom he's 10 yards down field.

A little lightning to go with Conner/Snell's thunder can't hurt. McFarland has the speed to take it to the house if he gets into the open field. I'll take it.

I'm pretty sure Snell's last fumble which made it 2 in 2 games put him in Tomlin's dog house. I think that's why we saw Samuels in there last week. I'd like to see McFarland get more touches. How cool would it be to see him bust loose for a long TD run? Don't get me wrong I like Snell but if he doesn't deal with his fumbling issues McFarland could work his way into the #2 slot.

I feel like that's something that's been sorely lacking from our offense since Willie Parker was let go. We've had bruising backs, and backs that are dynamic, but we haven't had a home-run hitter in quite some time. I feel like they tried to capture that a bit with undersized guys like Dri Archer and Chris Rainey but those undersize guys rarely pan out in the big leagues. McFarland isn't a big back but I did see a pretty mean stiff arm from him, in addition to him finishing a run against a safety in the Texans game. That definitely wasn't something we were ever gonna see from Rainey or Archer. I think McFarland's got that right combination of size/speed that you like to see.

give McFarland the ball on those outside runs in the 4th quarter when opposing defenses are worn down, the RB when Steelers go 4 wide on offense, plus a change of pace RB role. please not on 3rd and short plays. l liked this draft pick from the start glad he did the work to get on the field.

If they'd of given him the ball on like a delayed handoff out of the shotgun or something I'd of been more on board with giving a smaller back the ball in that situation. The Texans D would've had to guess if it was going to be a passing play or a running play. Instead they came out and lined up making it fairly obvious they were going to run the ball and the Texans defense knew exactly what was coming at them.
