    I think jplusip is right. We're stuck with CJ for at least one more season. But FWIW I'm not about to put $100 on it.

    With the contract we just gave him I can't see them giving up on him that quickly. Even if he finishes the season with 500 yards and a 1.8 ypc average. Unfortunately, they'll give him every opportunity to prove they didn't make a horrible decision paying him all that money. Even after it's painfully obvious he's never going to be the same. Yep, he'll handicap this team for at least one more season.

    I hope all the people who were screaming "PAY DA MAN" are happy.

    Good point. Also, don't forget that opposing defenses don't try as hard when CJ isn't in the game.

    I don't buy this. No one in the league is fearing CJ right now, and rightly so.

    I know. I was joking. Some people are still clinging to that excuse though.

    A lot has changed since the last time he had on a uniform. New coach, new offense, different QB. On top of that the whole lockout ordeal was a huge distraction and because of it he missed camp and pre-season.

    Maybe there is something going on internally with CJ.

    To be fair, he missed camp and pre-season because HE chose to hold out. Not because of the lockout.

    Yea nobody isn't saying that he didn't cause his own problems but I still think that he has the physical ability to be a productive back in the future for us even if it's not this year and we let Ringer get the major workload for the next 8 games. There's literally no chance they won't give CJ another chance next year and he'll have to prove himself more than ever at the beginning of next year.

    I think most of CJ's problems are mental and not physical.

    I agree. I was just responding directly to CJtheBeast's comment of "On top of that the whole lockout ordeal was a huge distraction and because of it he missed camp and pre-season." Which simply isn't true.
