    Re: I'd like to see one game where Jamal breaks out!



    do you people realize that in only 8 more carries (in one extra game), Jamal has exactly the same YPC as Tomlinson???

    Is Tomlinson losing a step?

    Replace Mike Flynn with Jason Brown and maybe we'll see some better things.

    I say put Flynn back at Right guard, yank Vincent & Jason Brown at center. Flynn was a better Guard then he was center.

    Comparing Jamal to LT isn't a fair comparison.


    Jamal, at his best, was a special kind of back. Most would agree that LT is the best, most complete, back in the game.


    But Jamal after that 2000 yards was something special; a power back with breakaway speed in the secondary.


    30 carries or 15 carries, it doesn't matter. Its clear that when Jamal gets outside or gets to the linebackers that he doesn't have that homeroom speed and ability to break tackles that he once had.


    That, or he just isn't hungry.


    Jamal has gotten mega-paid. And he's complained before about money.


    He strikes me as a player who cares more about the money than the glory. Getting basically 7 mil guaranteed for this year isn't helping matters.


    Part of me really wishes we had offered him something more incentive laden.

    Wouldn't we all? If he does we beat S. D. easily. Ball control is important to us winning this game.

    I know Jamal can still break out on any team. The play calling against Cleveland kept going up the middle...how about some off tackles and sweeps? Let jamal get outside where he can cut loose...

    Bingo. A running back, any running back (except possibly Barry Sanders) is only as good as their o-line. If the o-line can't open any holes, it's going to be a long day.
