How many times did Ruggs line up in the backfield like Waddle did and take hand offs...one of your answers is there.
How many screen passes did Ruggs take to the house? Waddle did a lot.
How many reverses did Ruggs take to the house? Waddle did...
How many slants over the middle in front of the MLB did Ruggs score on.
Waddle can take the top off better than Ruggs.
Plus,when Waddle gets the ball in his hands...he's basically a super fast Barry Sanders.
I LOVE all my Bama boys..but Waddle is a WEAPON.
I agree, Waddle and Ruggs are completely different players, both in how they run routes and the RAC. I like Waddle much more. The stats though? Not a lot different. Waddle with more catches/yards, Ruggs with more scrimmage TDs.
- Waddle took 2 screen passes for TDs. Nice plays but I wouldn't refer to 2 as a lot.
- I'm not sure what reverses you speak of. He has 4 career carries for 17 yards and no TDs.
- All of slants Waddle scored on (i counted 2) were behind the inside backer and in front of the safeties. The only TD in front of the LBs was a short crossing route against Georgia in 2018.
- Taking the top of is what Waddle did most. His double moves are ridiculous and DBs can't stay with him on corners/posts and go routes.
I get the argument you were going for but your data was off.
