Chan on C.J.’s carries

Posted by Chris Brown on December 5, 2011 – 3:56 pm

After going 80 yards on 11 carries with a touchdown in the first half, C.J. Spiller had just three carries in the second half. Head coach Chan Gailey explained why that happened on Monday after watching film.

“You’d have liked to (run more), but he touched the ball in the second half on the second and third series and touched it a couple of times on each, but we were so far behind that we had to start throwing the football.

“There weren’t many possessions in the second half. We had one long drive and they had two long drives and there weren’t many possessions. Yes, I would’ve liked to (run more), but the times when he did run it we didn’t run it very well. It was minus-1, four and one I think.

“I was thinking maybe they had made adjustments at halftime and maybe we needed to do some things differently. We tried to use him on some screens and it didn’t work out. But I’d like to have him have about 20 touches a game.”
