    That may be true. But part of it is on playcalling. When you run the ball 98% of the time he's on the field defenses are going to sell out to stop him.

    If we need one or two yards I'd much rather have Battle in there than CJ. But if we could just get a little more creative with our playcalling I think both of them would have more success.

    Greene is good, best vision, and most power. He should be our No.1 RB

    Yes I agree, the playcalling has been "blah" at best when we call runs.

    Loggains is holding us back ATM

    I don't disagree. But tough to be a #1 when you can't get on the field.

    I'm not sure he can be called the 'number 1.' what kind of team pays A BACKUP RUNNING BACK 10M per year... just can't be that way...

    SG should though get more snaps earlier though, instead of later. that way he'd be able to do what he was brought in to do; wear down the D early to allow CJ to rip some long runs.

    in the end, the matchup should really determine the snap count for each RB, but i can see a 60/40 breakdown favoring the guy that matches up better and/or the guy that is playing better.

    that leads me to my next point. i also have a huge problem with the way they take backs out when they are doing well and keep them in when they are not - that needs to be changed around EFFECTIVE NOW.

    CJ has played well besides last week. Which the Jets sold out to stop the run and dared Locker to beat them.

    I only agree because CJ is killing my fantasy team. I can't believe I drafted this bum again!
