    :yes: Before I start just wanted to say I'm in the AirForce stationed in Turkey, there is nothing to do right now, and I am bored.<- (Explains my post)....... I was looking at Titans player stats and noticed how similar the Titans used Chris Brown and LenDale White their rookie seasons. Its almost identical.

    Chris Brown Rookie season #'s where

    Gam - GS - ATT - YDS - AVG - LG
    11 - 0 - 56 - 221 - 3.9 - 28

    LenDale White Rookie season #'s where

    Gam - GS - ATT - YDS - AVG - LG
    13 - 0 - 61 - 224 - 4.0 - 26

    Barring the injury bug Brown still had a break out season the next year statistically breaking 1000 yds in only 11 games played and averaging 4.9 a pop. Personally I think our line is better at run blocking now than it was then with Bell no longer being a rookie and having more experience, Roos replacing the aging Hoppy, Stewart/ da Mauler taking over for Drop Dead Fred Miller, and Mawae instead of Hartwig. If I'm not mistaking the #2 back was Robert Holcombe. I'm sure we can bring in a better vet than that through FA or the draft. Also the fullback position was upgraded with Hall over Fleming. Skill wise LenDale has the edge if not why would they chose him as the future franchise back. I think if he matures and is in shape the way the coaches anticipate(which he will) LenDale will have a huge year. Holla Back

    What have you seen about lendale as an NFL pro to make him a beast?

    I'm not against lendale, as a matter of fact i'm really happy we have him on our roster and am looking forward to seeing him start next season; yet i'd still like to know why anyone would label a rookie who touched the ball about 60 times for a 4.0 avg a 'beast'. :suspect:

    Possibly it was in reference to his size? If the guy did not have talent I do not think Chow would have let us take him. I'm excited to see what he can do next season.

    LenDale was a beast in college. We are hoping, praying, he will be just as effective as a pro. I wasn't too impressed with his rookie year, but Travis overwhelmed everyone and got most of the carries. LenDale also had to compete with Chris for carries part way through the season.

    Another similarity between Brown and LW is they both have injury issues.

    Are we forgetting Brown had a better last year in college than White?

    Brown only rushed for 1900 yards and a 6 ypc in 2002 & 19 TDs.

    LenDale had more TDs and a higher ypc, but comparing USC's offense to Colorado's is just plain wrong.

    LenDale seems to be pretty gifted, but it's extremely hard to determine how he will do in the pros because you can't tell whether or not his production came from the system or from his skills.

    Brown got the ball more which could explain the better season. just a thought. I would take a guy with more td's and ypc because LW was on pace to do better ovr.
