    Dude, wake up... Did you watch the game last night? Our line did great... CJ got in the open field multiple times. Instead of going, he was studdering and side-slashing. He's lost a step. He got tackled by James Harrison who was laying down. He ran into his FB multiple times in the open field, when all he had to do was cut it outside and would of got major yards, and multiple times he didn't hit his holes. It's over, it's not 2008.

    He's an average runningback thats getting paid like a superstar.

    Yea CJ isn't the CJ we loved. He's not a game breaker anymore. He's average. But if he can continue to put up decent yards and keep drives going. I'm fine with him. That doesn't mean we shouldn't invest in a power back to supplement him.

    Harrison is an All Pro player himself just so you know. It's not like it was some scrub player who made the tackle. But in all seriousness I agree he should have just ran straight there. Sometimes he doesn't use his speed like he should. He has been hesitating a little in the open field but come on, he still did very well last night against a notoriously known good run D. Also it doesnt help he only sees the open field once every 4 games!

    I don't think he managed a long td run in the past 2 years.... That's why his averages have dropped so much.... And no I don't see that happening. If he can get us a sub 5 run when he is givin the ball... I'm cool with it. But please Palmer stop giving it back to back to him.... His gas tank is really small it seems.

    Yeah an All-Pro player, coming back from injury, laying on the ground. I don't care who it is. If your this world class speed superstar RB, you think you'd be able to get around a guy laying down in the open field.

    The hesitation is killing us, and he isn't changing it. He did OK yesterday, don't give him the credit.. he had huge holes. He should of had a much better day, if he just didn't hesitate.

    Yes, Pitt is a good run D.. but they also were out Woodley, Troy, Clark (for 1/2 game), and it was Harrisons first game back (or second?). Pretty big injuries - they're still solid though.

    I never wanted to give CJ this contract, was never for it. He's aging quickly. Has nothing but his speed, and has had a very big workload in past years. You don't pay blockbuster money to a RB who only has speed, in a passing league, and his glory days are past him. Can't pay an average/good player superstar money.. because he's not a superstar.

    If he keeps being this productive we should trade him for a seventh round pick. Get that ridiculous contract off the books for average production.

    We can find a running back in the seventh round who can run up his fullback's back in the open field.
