Was Ware's problems on him, or how BP used? Something to think about.
Let's be honest. No matter how much Bill "tried to hold Ware back", Ware's talent is too great to keep from shining through. Even without the sacks, he was still a playmaker. The same can't be said for Julius. He's shredded some bad defenses, and every once in a while he has a wow game, but it's not like this superior talent is sitting there waiting to be unleashed, and that's evident on gameday. On gameday, Julius looks like what he is - a pretty average back capable of an occasional great game. Maybe in a different blocking system he'd do better, but we;ve tried at least two, haven't we?
Sooner or later that shine's gotta come off that rookie season highlight vid, where JJ torched some of the worst defenses in the league. And that's not on Bill.
