So do the Jaguars (1-6) ride the hot hand (Denard Robinson) or go back to Toby Gerhart? Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch wasn’t tipping his hand much on Wednesday as the team prepares for Sunday’s game against Miami (3-3) at EverBank Field.
“I think we’ll continue to mix and match a little bit,” Fisch said. “I don’t know exactly how that will all play out yet.”
That would seemingly be good news for Gerhart if Fisch isn’t ready to fully endorse the back that gave the offense a needed lift. Fisch did praise Robinson for his strong outing and his improvement.
Beat writer Michael DiRocco predicted earlier in the day that Robinson would be the lead back going forward and would see "15-20 carries...maybe even a little bit lower." We're betting that Gerhart stays involved when healthy, though Robinson has worked himself into a large role in the Jaguars' (modest) running game.
