I thought he had a pretty damn good game today. McD finally stopped trying to run him up the middle over and over and got him out on the edges in space and he made some good moves and had some good runs.

Just thought I'd share.

He reminds me of Portis some the way he knifes through small openings.

KM had a very good game, one of the few bright spots.

What happened to Buckhalter did not see him after the fumble?

It's been the way this season when both backs are healthy.

If one of them fumbles, the other becomes the feature back for the day.

Knowshon looked good today, he'll be a very good runner for us for years to come if he stays healthy.

Moreno is best on the edges and when he isn't dancing around he had a good game

I love the kid. He's learning, and our line is still forming... but we're getting glimpses of what the team can do with him.

Ripping off those 7 yard runs is just invaluable to our offense.

He's on his way to a very productive rookie season, despite being the object of some undue criticism around here.

Very average today. Looked great when Brandon Marshall was opening up the secondary. After Simms eternally crapped the pot, he didn't do much. Still can't run through defenders at the LOS.

Got his first 20 yd carry of the season though... 9 games into the season.

Whoot.

It does, but I didn't see it there. He was carrying it carelessly and the guy just seemed to hit him in the back. I didn't see an overly aggressive strip or anything. Looked pretty routine and he just coughed it up.

I watched the game in a very crowed noisy bar and there was only one replay that I saw it looked like a good play and strip by the D

Admittedly I was somewhat distracted by the chick with the big boobies in the too small bikini

He wasn't stripped. He was basically standing straight up and got popped in the back and the ball came out. He just never saw the lineman charging up from behind.

But it is still his fault.

He played better then you gave him credit for. It was very game for him when came to run those zone plays/stretch plays and attacking the edge. And I post this as one of the guys that never been that enamored with his play.

I thought he was going to win it for us until Simms threw that absolutely horrid INT.

Wasnt really stripped, was more of a hard hit from behind that jarred it loose. Its Bucks fault for not anticipating that he might be hit from behind when dancing around like he was.

McDaniels finally started calling stretch plays isntead of up the butt over and over again

I get that he likes to pull guards, but Shannys stretch plays were just better
