    He never said he sucked under Collins. He is just pointing out that he played BETTER with Young under center.

    Try this rational thinking. CJ got MORE carries when Vince was QBing. That translates to more opportunities for yards. We weren't balanced with Vince because he was NO passing threat. With Collins, there was at least more (although not enough) of a passing threat and balanced attack.

    Until somebody proves the ypc were up with VY vs. KFC, the assertion that VY's presence improved CJ's running is invalid.

    " A great back should get his yards no matter who the QB is. "

    Absolutely. But there is so much wrong with the team right now that it needs a complete overhaul, which it isn't going to get. I've never understood coaches that let potentially great players sit and continue playing those who have shown time and time again they can't do the job assigned to them. 'tis a mystery.

    yep

    Babaneiuexxex is about too prove that he suPKs as much as Hope does, but continuting to play Hope when he clearly is not getting it done is just stupid.

    Which still made us more versatile and better at what this team did. (running the ball) From what I remember Collins wasn't that much better as a passer, nothing to brag about anyway.

    From what I remember from last year until Vince got hurt we had the best offense in the league, just saying. You have to be balanced for that.

    With this Oline and the negligence to change anything don't expect the running game to improve until we have another mobile qb(Locker) or until someone decides to sit they're favorites. Ugh feels like that azzhat Fisher all over again.

    Johnson's two highest ypc games in 2009 came when Collins was QBing, not VY.

    Your right you are do it by ypc and you will see. Not to mention we did have Mawae then too. So think what you want the running game was still better with Vince at qb regardless but I'm glad we're past all that.
