    CJ hasn't had a goal line carry all year. He has shown in the past that he can get in from down and goal to go. Battle has done it 1 out of 16542130 trys this season. Ok that might be an exaggeration but you get my point.

    CJ didn't get it out of the endzone in a must situation in the Texans game. I think Battle would have.

    On that play, the way it developed, no. Battle would have been tackled there too.

    Guys hate to say it, but TWW2 has a point. Battle is trash unless he can get going, and on the goal line he's the last guy who can hit his 2nd or 3rd gear to punch it in for a score.

    Plus he likes to stare down where he's going.

    Its so stupid! He just runs with his head down into the backs of lineman most of the time. Eventually he is gonna wind up hurting one them if he continues to do this.

    Doubt it.

    CJ hasn't been effective in must-have short-yardage situations in a few seasons. He crumbles on contact. The Jets game is a prime example.

    On this play he juked the first defend that got to him 4 yards deep in the endzone. Battle would have gone down there.

    I tend to think that too, so sad that we're even having to talk about Jackie Battle, where is Shonn Greene?
