His numbers weren’t the most impressive. But three times he came up big when it counted. That first down he made that guy miss, his TD, and the 2 points. Actually a fourth, when he laid out a rusher protecting fitz to convert that pass to hurns that moved the chains.

What surprised me was Flo using him as the closer in the final possession

I suspect that Flores wants a large one-cut power back for his 1st and 2nd down duties. Ballage fits the style, but lacks the ability.

Laird is our new third down/utility guy, while I think Gaskin is probably limited to a receiving back and return role.

Add in our real life fullback and we really only need a starting back to replace Ballage.

Flores might want that, but Walton was starting for a bit and in a backfield with mostly small backs he was by far the smallest. I understand why Flores wanted to start Ballage this year and understood why with Walton and Drake out of the way he got another shot, but I don't understand why Ballage would get any more shots. And I was really hopeful for the guy coming into this year based on his size/speed combo.
