Yep. Everyone has an opinion and it can only be the right answer, no margin for differing viewpoints and if you don't agree, you're wrong and clearly an idiot. Pretty sad state of affairs. But unfortunately, it's even worse in the comment section of all the major news sites. We've become a society of "My way or the Wrong way" people unwilling to see options for compromise or differing views.

AE is avoiding injury by falling to the turf like a grenade went off when he gets approached by the opposition.
He is very limited in what he can do for the team. He's a very very poor man Darren Sproles.
I had much higher hopes for this guy a couple of years ago but he's approaching wasted space.
season ticket holder
He has got to be used like a true 3rd down/scat back....he should never be running the ball up the middle.
If you want to put him in two back sets and let him run routes, or the occasional toss sweep or screen pass or draw...then fine. I think he can be effective in that role. If you are going to treat him as DJ's backup, and ask him to do the same types of things, then AE will be hurt by week 3.
they are going to use him as a receiver more often according to kent somers and others
this free agency has me way "out of sorts".... So Help me... andre ellington is going to be a wide receiver, now? Did they legalize Pot in Arizona? or do Y'all sell Peyote for football teams?

Really this should not surprise most Card fans that remember how the coaching staff was pleasantly surprised at how well AE ran routes and by how well he caught the ball. Not just short routes either.
What did surprise me was how little he was utilized last year and too often in the wrong way, trying to make tough runs up the middle with a lack of consistent blocking to create a crease for him to get through.
I wonder if he's back at 100% if he'd look better at K&P returns. Assuming we had somebody on return duty that could block for him....
