  • i can see the board is pretty hyped on CMike, and for good reason, i liked what i saw in his highlight reel.. but is this guy going to get any touches this year, or will he be used sparingly like L Washington last season? barring injury to one of the top two of course... just curious

    What makes anyone think that Christine won't take over the number 2 spot? With Pete's take on competition I'd say that spot is pretty wide open. He seems a freakish athlete and talent. Without the behavior concerns he probably gets drafted in the mid to late first round.

    I'm not really sure why people think CMike is a upgrade over Turbin. They are virtually the same player, Same size, same measurables. Turbin is a little faster (at least according to the combine times).

    Turbin- grade= 74.5 (arbitrary I know), 4.50= 40 time, 28 reps- bench, 36"-vert, 122"- Broad, 7.16-cone, 4.31-20 shttl
    Michael- grade= 71.4(arbitrary grd), 4.54= 40 time, 27 reps- bench, 43"-vert, 125"-Broad, 6.69-3 cone, 4.02- 20 shttl

    Turbin was way more productive than Michael, who never broke 1,000 rushing @ TAMU. Michael also has a bigger injury history. Which isn't to say I don't like the guy, But as PC said, they are very similar players and I'd say it gives us the best backfield in the NFL.

    I think both are very fast, shifty, and dynamic players. I expect both to play this year and lighten Marshawn's workload.
    I'm really curious to see how Ware does at FB.

  • Michael appears to me to have better burst, vision and wiggle than Turbin. Ad despite being similar size/weight combos, their bodies couldn't be more different. Turbin is that guy at the gymn that does curls and bench press all day long. He's all upper body. Michael's build is pretty evenly distributed, to the point where he looks small for a 220 pound back.

    I think if push came to shove and someone had to start the beginning of the season in place of Lynch, it would be Turbin. But as the season goes on I thinkMichael takes that over.

  • I'm pretty sure coach would have something to say about that entrance move, prefaced with some comments about showboating and whatnot, followed with a stern warning about risking personal injury.

    Perhaps not an upgrade but an equal in competition. I've read somewhere where Michael is as fast as 4.4. Also by those combine numbers alone... 1) Michael is more explosive (Vert & Broad Jump) 2) Way better body control and much better in closed quarters quickness as well as space.
    #11 is the Gatling Gun, coming at Ds in multiple, unpredictable ways spreading the field horizontally.

    #10 is the Sniper Rifle, if you don't respect his deep field speed opposing DBs will end up in a pink mist.

    #24 is the Boomstick, get in his way when you're the lone defender, I dare you.

  • This dude is a ridiculous athlete.

    Did you see the height on that flip? At 220 lbs and with game pads on? Seriously, wtf.

    QFT. Those hulk biceps don't do anything but suck blood and nutrients from the legs, they mean nothing to a running back. Marshawn doesn't have Mr Olympia peaked biceps but he can drag 11 defenders down the field and that's the kind of back we want in the primary rushing role.

    Turbin is great catching out of the backfield except for that Niners game (dammit) but he's no number 2 on this team.

  • I think Christine Michael is going to be a star. He won't be a #3 running back. Obviously, Seattle wouldn't have drafted a #3 RB with their first pick. I imagine that the moment Lynch slows down even a little, we'll be in store for some roster controversy ala Kaepernick/Smith, with a similar outcome.

  • I still can't get over that flip. Most people when they flip tuck their legs and arms to make them spin faster. Christine has his legs extended and gets so much elevation it is amazing. Wow, just wow.

    For comparison here's Jerome Simpson but he got some "help"
