[QUOTE]I agree, BJGE should get a chance......I think that both bjge and maroney could start if they were on a different TEAM....The pat's just give up on the running game, and it's boom's away!!!! Running Back's need to get in rythem.....not 2 carries and your out.....Kevin Faulk is fantastic... I could do without fragile freddie and morris............DEAR BILL GIVE YOUR RUNNING BACK'S A CHANCE, PLEASE!!!!!

LOL Do without fragile Freddie????? OMG what?
Go do some research on Fast Freddie before you speak.
He is currently 13th or 14th on the ALL time NFL rushing leaders list and after this season will move even higher.
Every guy on the list ahead of him simply has more attempts.
ONLY three guys ahead of him on the list have better career YPC averages than he does.
Freddie currently has a 4.6 avg. OJ Simpson finished with a 4.7. Barry Sanders finished with a 5.0. ...and Jim Brown had a 5.2.
Seriously what the heck are you talking about? I love BJGE but it is not his time yet. He'll get his chance and I'll be excited for him when he does but he played a bunch last year and was solid but his numbers do not set the world on fire.
People make too much out of PRESEASON. The Pats are considered a generally deep team so when our backups get in against other teams backups we usually kick gluteus maximus in the PRESEASON games. (ie the GIANTS game after we were down big and they put in their backups and our backups started rolling and came back to win the game)
That was also an example of when guys like NUNN and BJGE started tearing it up and everyone starts ooing and aahing and saying why aren't these guys playing.
Hello knock knock, anyone home. PRESEASON!!
