I don't know what's going on with Railey, but having him coming in to spell Ejim and JVB along with Godfrey would do wonders for their legs at the end of the game. Bubu needs to develop quickly, so he can spell DG more frequently would be great as well. The loss of Phillips is turning out to be bigger than I expected, but the team has to deal with it. I wonder how the FB fill-ins are turning out. The team needs them to be able to see floor time as well. If CFH can rotate eight or nine, that would be huge for the team's endurance during a game.

    Another thing is the team is getting way behind early, so they need to expend extra energy to catch up. That's another huge factor in their stamina at the end of the game. Our boys need to get ahead early and stay there, that way they can stay fresher to finish the game as winners.
    Although I posted the above on another thread, I feel that it's appropriate here as well particularly the second paragraph. Having to expend all that energy in playing catch-up does not bode well for finishing games talent, or no talent.

    Riley played and made mistakes, Bubu played a lot and didnt play well at all, he hasnt been playing well since conference games have started. This team faces a good scout team everyday, if they cannot develop there do you really think more PT will help them that much?
