    There's never been a problem with his blitz pickup. As a matter of fact, that's one of his strengths. He does need to improve as a receiver though.

    I disagree based on many plays last year where he either whiffed or barely slowed down the blitzer because he wanted to get out on his route.

    Yeah CJ seemed to be defeated, depressed, and unmotivated last season as a whole. I think the run blocking problems along with all of the criticism was just killing him. He is very capable of doing a very good job on blitz pickup though. I've seen him be very effective at it consistently before.

    Last season was almost a wash for CJ... I'm hoping this season sees him returning to his former capabilities.

    The only thing he succeeded in last season was getting paid and have a decent stat for total yardage for the year.

    CJ looked about as fast/slow as Ringer. Anyone who says otherwise has some blinders on.

    That being said, I think he has a decent year. Maybe top 5 in rushing, or just outside.

    So you think Ringer would have scored just like CJ on that long one against Buffalo?
