    I definitely liked how there is not one or two players carrying the team on their back as that does happen at times.Today there were different players at different times in the game coming up with a very important play.One play i remember involved Warmack helping Battle bulldoze through for a first down on a great second effort after it looked initially like he might be stopped.There were some catches by Nate Washington that kept drives going on critical third down plays.Also on defense Verner coming up with an interception as well as McCourty stopping numerous passes from being caught.Also who can forget about Casey,Brown and the rest of the defense.Looks like bringing in Gregg Williams certainly helped.Overall it looked like numerous players made a play when it counted.Bringing in fresh blood in free agency definitely helped as first year Titan Pitotua knocked a ball down at the line of scrimmage and also another veteran free agent George Wilson helped seal the victory today by catching the onside kick.If we show effort like this every week we will be pretty good.

    In the past it definitely looked like there were only certain players stepping up and often it wasn't enough to get us to victory.Now we have many different players helping out at critical points when a play was needed.We also won the time of possession today something we have struggled with.This year we looked a lot better on both sides of the ball.Often times when only one or two players make most of the plays it is not enough.We have seen C.J. try to carry the offense in the past but now he has help especially on critical third down plays when Battle or Green gained first downs.In the past we would've come up short because we had C.J. doing everything including running on third which is now done with Battle and Greene.Also the offensive line looks like a lot better and Locker has time now instead of running for cover.Also looks like the defense is looking much better this season as well.

    CJ got a sneaky 70 yards. I was shocked it looked like much less. Gotta love what Battle and Greene bring to the table. It was fitting that Battle got that TD and I hope it makes him hungry for more. I'll have to re-watch the game to break down the O-line properly but I suspect they were little better than average.

    Not sure what you mean by this. I was clear that he under performed thus the "it looked like much less" part. 70 yards isn't particularly substantial and I didn't even think he got that many initially so that should tell ya how I feel about CJ's performance today.

    70 yards a game is 1100+ for the season. Not bad, considering the other RB options we have.

    Not bad for the average back. Remember, cj1yd is elite.

    I wish you didn't hate on him so much but I agree with you.

    I feel like as long as they work collectively as a team like they did today then they could very well be a really good team especially if Jake Locker improves.The thing i really saw today is it seemed like everytime a play was made it was a different player and that very well goes for both sides of the ball.You can tell the difference in this year and last year's team.We have brought in much some new faces and that has helped a lot.Gregg Williams has really improved the defense from a coaching standpoint and the players really came through today especially Jurrell Casey and Zach Brown those two are the heart and soul of that unit so far.I applaud the changes to the line and the way the coaches have realized C.J. and the team are a lot better off sharing carries and Jackie Battle and Shonn Greene can help wear opposing defenses down.Locker has a great line,awesome backs and plenty of targets to throw too all he has to do is manage the offense efficiently.I feel like if we can get a good rushing attack going along with a bruising defense we will be in the postseason this season.

    Sorry bro, hold outs piss me off. Especially holds outs that get what they want and then suck it up. I was a HUGE fan before then.
