Is it too much showboating ?

  1. yeah, he needs to tone it down, especially with a live ball

    I think CJ knows his limits. He knows he can outrun just about anybody so if they get too close then he knows he has to tone it down. CJ hasn't fumbled on a play like that yet so he still has my support. Until he does mess up then ill have a problem

    So now you are talking noise about the fact our rookie RB, that was going to be a 3rd down back coming into the season is better than your wonder boy. Boy you really hurt my feelings with that one. "Your RB didn't even start the season as a starter so our rookie is better because he couldn't get more yards than your back up." You're kidding right?

    I am not going to bother reading through this but has anyone brought up that Johnson has a higher Yards/Game, TD/Game, and less fumbles then SlayTENN? Or the simple fact; which one is going to the playoffs. Overalls that's why you will see football on TV tomorrow. The Texans kind of have a bye week they earned from sucking. :gag:

    Fair comment.

    I don't remember seeing a season where three rookie RB have played as complete football as Johnson,Slaton and Forte.

    It's one thing to be put in to run & do nothing else but to play on every down,blocking,receiving etc it's remarkable. I don't think it means we'll start seeing it every year more rookie RB's either.All three should be around for a long time.

    What's Slaton like as a blocker in protection? Johnson is now trusted in that role and he's only messed up a couple of times.

    In light of recent comments he made about the Pro Bowl here's something positive on CJ that suggests he's not getting too big for his boots.

    Don't argue with GeT. He said that CJ is more of a starter than Slaton. So there is no way that Slaton started more games than CJ. Just ask him. I notice though that you left out total yards from scrimage. I guess that didn't fit your agenda since Slaton had more rec per game, more rec yards per game and a higher yards per catch, but I understand. We wouldn't want the TENNheads to know that SlayTENN is also the more complete RB.

    Slatons vision is as good as CJ's, Slaton is a little slower but makes it for it with having more power than CJ.

    Having White will keep CJ's legs fresh, Slaton is going to wear down late in the season if he stays the feature back.
