    The line is terrible, there's no denying it, but when there's some room and he just shuffles his feet in the backfield then he's to blame too. None of this, "I'm as good as my line," bullcrap when you hold out to be the highest paid "playmaker" in the league then take a dump on the field every week.

    Bench CJ and let the other RBs get a crack at it. After that we'll have a better understanding of who is "mostly" to blame. Unfortunately we have an ignorant coaching staff so CJ will continue to start until he either gets rolling or gets hurt.

    Right or not (which I think he has a very compelling point), this is not something a professional athlete should say. I would prefer to see him encouraging his teammates in some way, not throwing them under the bus (even though it is painfully obvious how bad they are, even to the national media).

    I still think CJ is our best option, he still has good burst and agility evidenced on his receptions. Something seriously needs to be done about our O-line woes, because they are even starting to break down in pass protection. I'm not so knowledgeable about college prospects, but I wonder if there are any OL worthy of a mid first round pick.

    He's telling the truth. The oline and palmer are our problems in the run game. CJ wants to do good more then anyone. He sucked last year and so he hit the gym and gained muscle to be better this year. This is the heaviest he's been in all his seasons, and he's still as fast. If the oline could do their job, and Palmer made good plays, that FIT Cj's style, instead of sending him up the middle every single run, then CJ could get 1,500 yards easy.

    Mid first round? At the rate they're headed looks like a top 3 overall!

    "I'm only as good as my OLine."

    This should end the argument on whether we should have paid this chump or let anyone else be our RB and spread that money amongst 5 OLinemen, or anyone else for that matter. Now we have 2 guys effectively handcuffing the team that can't b good at all unless everyone around the is awesome? Just wonderful....

    I think cj is good witth proper blocking.

    I think the line is so bad its aking the team look worse than it is.

    I also think CJ is not worth his contract, and that fact makes him a laughingstock to people.

    Sounds like he doesn't expect to even obtain his 21 yd avg this Sunday.
