Frank Alexander comes back after Baltimore right? I was hoping his suspension would get shortened. I'm really hoping he can step up in Hardy's absence and be a shot in the arm on the dline. He's big, mean, and stout against the run from what I've seen

The funny part will be IF he does it again vs the Lions, heads will pop on here.  If he had gotten 6 more carries  he would've been over a 100 yards and who knows if he would have broken one.  I hope our new oline can build on Sunday. That will be awesome. The playaction off the running game to Benji an the rest will get even better. I don't care which running back runs well each week, we just need our running game to be good

Is it crazy to just say the line blocked better for Deangelo? I saw Stew getting hit in the backfield and grind out a 3 yard gain. There is value in that. I don't like to get caught up in yards per carry because every play comes under unique circumstances.


Deangelo ran harder than we've become accustomed to. Credit to him for that. But he had a ton of ineffective runs too.


Tolbert didn't have a great game running but some of his carries were clock killing in a stacked box. And any type of misdirection or read option was less effective with DA in there.

     No he didn't man. Maybe like twice. He ran 14 times for 70+ yards and its not like he broke off a 40 yarder. Most of his runs were in the 4 to 8 yard gain range. Deangelo gets up to speed faster than Tolbert or Stew and like you said he was running hard and breaking tackles better than we've seen in awhile. Maybe his mom's passing and everyone crushing has him refocused a bit. I know he hasn't been doing interviews this year so to me that says he just wants to play. Hopefully so. We need his speed on offense even more this year. 

     Like Squirrel said I don't think there was anything wrong with Stew or Tolbert. Deangelo is just not as washed up as everyone wants to declare(not saying in any way that he's 08 DW). The oline gave him some push and creases that did not happen alot last year. People are funny making excuses for why he ran well. He just played better on Sunday simple as that. That can and probably will change week to week.

He said he can stretch the field and hinted that he was "ready" from that espn interview. It sounded like he was really excited and b will was going to get opportunities. At least that's the way I took it

That's the way it sounded to me also

But to be honest, virtually every GM says this. No GM is going to come out and say, "Look, we know he wasn't the best player available, but we reached on a position of need." Every GM is going to try to sell people on the idea that the guy he picked was the BPA.

Right, who's going to say "hey we reached but we had to."  Common sense says that when you get to 2 or 3 players that are closely rated team needs become a part of the tiebreaker. He also said that he wants guys that can come in and impact immediately. It would be hard for a 1st rd DE pick to impact immediately when they're behind 2 probowlers (Hardy,CJ) whereas an OT, WR, or even DB could very well walk in and be the best at their position day 1.
