    All sound about right but i think if mercilus got to see the field more he might take the rookie of the year award. The guy has a natural knack for gwtting to the QB

    Was looking through our roster for free agent additions, because, surely, I thought, James can't have been our BEST free agent addition this year...

    I'd go with Donnie Jones. I thought he'd be a stop gap until Hartmann was back, but he's played very well so far.

    I agree. Donnie Jones has been really good.

    Bradie James... he's played a lot, he's been an on-the-field QB for the defense, but he hasn't done a lot of damage other than getting other people in the right positions.

    Seconded, Shayne Graham has been reliable as well besides his weak kick-offs. If Ben Tate doesn't keep getting hurt I can see Forsett having a bigger impact also as the season goes on.

    The fact he doesn't eat meat, and consumes plenty of raw fruit and
    vegetables makes his digestion and recovery (assimilation
    of amino acids into proteins) far more efficent than when he was a meat
    eater. Since most plant foods, in their raw form, are highly alkalinizing,
    he's less likely to suffer inflammation for as long as meat eaters do.

    Since his system is running far more efficiently, in all areas including
    mental clarity and focus, his stamina is much higher than it was when
    he was chomping on Bessie, Bambi, Foghorn Leghorn, and Wilbur.

    2. Marshawn "Skittles" Lynch 757
    3. Alfred Morris 717
    4. Stevan Ridley 716
    5. Arian Foster 659

    Bradie James isn't flashy, but he is solid as a rock.

    And making the defensive calls and getting people into position is working very well!

    Ok, well I guess if he posted this last week when that was current information, it might be right. But it's Tuesday of Week 9, so I go by those numbers. Even if you go by rush yards per game, he's third.

    Hell if we're using old stats, I was tied for the lead in rushing yards prior to week 1.

    Foster is averaging 24 carries/game. Tate has to stay healthy and carry more of the load (only 7 carries/game thus far) in the 2nd half.

    I'm not disagreeing. Whoever wrote this was going by last week's stats.

    And if you look at this week's stats, Arian's third in yards per game BUT the two guys ahead of him and the two guys immediately behind him have all played 1 more game than he has. It doesn't make a difference. It's just the bye skewing things.
