Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman Locked Into Disgusting 3-Headed Committee With Creature Ito Smith

Holy shit, this is disgusting. ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported before the Falcons’ Week 5 matchup with the Steelers that Devonta Freeman would be injected into a three-headed committee with both Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith, but we didn’t see it unfolding like it actually did. Freeman “led” the Falcons with eight carries for a measly 32 yards, while Coleman added 15 useless yards on seven carries. To make matters worse, Ito Smith got a goal line carry and scored on one of his three carries that totaled a pathetic five yards. In what should have been a cake matchup for both Freeman and Coleman, they both failed to separate from one another and it looks like we’re headed for a fantasy disaster in Atlanta.

Now, one could point to the scoreboard for the main reason as to why Sark was fine with the committee. They were quickly down 13-0 and establishing a run game wouldn’t have been ideal. However, they cut it to a three point game at the half and could have slowed things down to begin the second half against that soft Pittsburgh defense.

Moving forward, it’s going to be tough to trust Freeman or Coleman — especially if Ito Smith is going to be a goal line vulture. The Falcons have a plus-matchup ahead in what should be a high scoring affair with the Bucs shitty defense, so it will be okay to give the two running backs another chance. But if they falter against Tampa, we don’t like their chances moving forward. If you have a sucker in your league and could potentially sell either one, it wouldn’t hurt to throw out an offer to get something in return. Either way, Anderson was spot on in her pregame report of a three-headed, puke inducing committee — and it really sucks.
