LaRod Stephens-Howling


This 5'7 185 pound RB/ST player is one of my favorite on the Arizona Cardinals roster. He is jacked for his size and has an incredible amount of speed. He is an explosive kick returner and has proven that with his multiple returns for touchdowns in his short NFL career. Clearly the rule to move the kick offs closer has hampered his ability on special teams but I still see an important role for him in the offense.

One thing that pains me about this team is the way they use LaRod on the offensive side of the ball.  This teams inability to run a decent screen is just one of the ways that hurts LSH's value to this team. The coaching staff seems allergic to putting LaRod in space and letting him do what he does best, make big plays. This simple route into the middle of the field shows just what LSH can do for this team http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-fantasy/09000d5d823680e0/QB-Kolb-to-RB-Stephens-Howling-73-yd-pass-TD 

Don't get me wrong I am not saying LSH is the best at what he does but he should be a Darren Sproles / Reggie Bush type for this offense. Quick passes out of the backfield, draws, short throws, anything to get them in space and let the playmaker do his thing.

Just curious as to what you other Cardinals fans think about LSH in general? And how he is being used in the offense?
