Thanks Em

Some of us were kind of worried because you didn't show up last week.
Nice piece as usual, but come on. Suggesting that CJ1.4, Ringer and co. of the Titans even come close to the Texan's RB is preposterous. Just saying.

Thanks Austrian.. I don't look at stats when breaking down personnel..I look at skill set. And I think "Skills-wise" there's talent in both teams' backfield

Seriously? What the hell man? Are you a professional troll now?

The Texans are 5th in the league in rushing per game as a team with 451 yards, the Titans are 32nd with 117.
The Texans have rushed the ball 117 times this year (1st), the Titans only 45 times (32nd).
The Texans are averaging 3.9 yards per attempt (16th), the Titans are in dead last with 2.6.
The Texans have 5 rushing TDs this year (3rd), the Titans have ZERO (32nd).

You can't get much more disparate than that. Skill or not, their O-line or their runningbacks do not deserve to be considered a wash against the Texans counterparts. Maybe you need to study up on what those advantage checkbox forms are for.

EM, you're using "skill set" like some folks use "upside" or "potential"; neither means a damn thing unless and until they don't translate into MEASURABLE RESULTS.

Clearrrrrrrrrrrrly I stated numerous times that I don't use stats when looking at personnel..Its more of a skill-set type of thing and showing where the liabilities are. And as a former RB, I know that numbers don't tell the whole story.

Fine, putting aside the dodge of "I don't use stats," CJ has not demonstrated his skill set in the last 19 games (other than I think 1 game last season). Skill set from three seasons ago which hasn't been demonstrated since isn't a current skill set.

You should probably look at stats occasionally when putting these together.

Why look at stats when you can look at Madden ratings to get an in-depth analysis of player "skill sets?"

Actually it makes sense now, CJ500 is the fastest RB on Madden so that's all that matters. Foster's speed rating on Madden isn't as good therefore CJ>AF in the all important speed skill set.

You're saying the skill-sets of our running backs are equal so the difference must be in the offensive lines, yet you have those even as well.

After seeig the third video I realize this is nothing more than comedic relief. I respect everyone's hustle though usually no matter what it is they're doing so more power to him.

Texans have the best backfield since Hershel Walker & Tony Dorsett. How's that?

Skill set????

Lemme guess...Michael Vick > Matt schaub in your world.

Kind of hard to take that analysis serious. Skill set would have Jamarcus Russell on par with Steve McNair.

I confused as to how you think that's good analysis. Maybe chris Johnson remembers who he used to be or half if who he used to be, but chris Johnson and Jevon ringer are equal to Arian foster and Ben Tate?

Even Titan fans would disagree with that.
