    Oh yea you and me, crystal clear. But C.J., he just bought a new Maserati just cause he can.

    He'll be on that Vince Young bailout plan shortly though. Under Armour wont touch him, ESPN wont touch him, we're about to cut him, his bullchit clothing line will fall apart shortly after. Poor guy :funnynot:

    But he deserves all that to happen, he screwed us.

    I question his sanity when I see pictures of him 'dressed'

    Its almost as if someone was making a parody of a celebrity clothing line

    It's really amazing how fast and drastic his falloff was. And if you put it all on the OL you're delusional. Remember the "homeless" days? He used to run so hard all the time. Now he's just like "If there's not a hole 5 yards wide I might as well not even try".

    he got greedy like all the other DIVAS in the league and when he got payed, he fell apart. I bet you if he was getting 2-3 mil a year and it was his contract year he would be blasting through those holes. This guy is really something and won't ever compare to what Eddie George was. He may have the speed and 1 great season but I would take Eddie for the long haul!

    I feel this post is going unappreciated.

    Yep. It's almost entirely an effort/motivation issue with him. Whatever game that was where he ran over one or two guys to get into the endzone just proved it. That was his most impressive run of the season IMO.

    Just too bad he only runs with that authority when he's got a good chance for a TD or there's a gigantic hole in front of him. Dude straight folds up if a big hole isn't there. I really don't even see how anyone is still trying to debate it at this point.

    That post needed some pictures so I knew what he looked like "dressed". I didn't even know he had a clothing line lol, but I'm also too lazy to look it up.

    Then the appreciation can flow :)

    I used to get all pissy about players holding out and whatnot too, until I heard what happened to Javon Walker. After I heard that story and realized the average NFL career only lasts 3-5 years I said F it, get all the money you can. If I was in their shoes I'd do the same thing. Nice guys finish last in business.
