I don't mind Kevin being optomistic. Maybe don't say it to the media, but if you don't think you have a chance to win the SB every year, why are you playing?
That said, this might be as good a place as any to say I'm a little worried abot Kevin this season. For some reason he really reminds me of Kevin Jones coming off his rookie year. Not in the way he runs or anything like that, just in the tendency to get knicked up a bit. I'm also a little concerned that the Lions may start to use more of a power run game instead of the ZBS scheme that Kevin was perfect for. Not that I wouldn't prefer more of a power run game actually. But will Kevin be able to do what he's capable of in something other than a ZBS?
Now I have no idea if the Lions are even changing their running philosophy at all, but if so, will he be as successful in a different scheme? I'm not sure, but I'm very interested to find out.
I thought Kevin was best fit for a power run game.
Meh, he came out of a ZBS, and I always thought it was a perfect fit for him. He has good patience, good vision, good burst to the cutback lane once he sees it. I don't think he has tremendous long speed to run away from anyone. To be honest, he always reminded me of a bigger Mike Hart.
Again, I'm not saying he can't do it. I think Mike Hart could be successful in a power run game behind a good line as well. I just think he is/was perfect for a ZBS, and if we change our running game, I'm interested to see how he adjusts.
