Evans could have been great for us. Unfortunately, so many things were going wrong then that it's hard to pinpoint just a few. I still don't remember just how many Athletic Pubalgia cases we had, I suspect more than a couple of the assistants had lost some of the fire for recruiting and maybe weren't as motivated by Solich, and some of the programs around us had just flat out caught up on the things we did and surpassed us....I don’t think he recruited DeAngelo Evans but he quit and was probably when healthy the best RB that played for him. Buckhalter wasn’t bad and the other bigger back that played with him who I can never remember both had decent careers and decent success in the NFL. Overall I don’t think he recruited the RB or QB position well. It is compounded when you had never before and can’t learn to call an offense.
Wonder what would have happened if Crawford had come here? Hard to blame him - saw he has a net worth of 65M somewhere and it might be higher based on that last contract he got.
Interesting thought for me on the Newcombe/Crouch debate. Where are they in Frost's offense?
I think Crouch plays Duck-R position and Newcombe plays WR. Having 2 guys like that in space with a QB who could get them the ball would be terrifying for most defenses!
