he started 7 games and had 80 or more yds in 6 of them...he posted games of 149, 150 and 198 in those 7 weeks...you dont do that by accident or just because the other teams are bad...you can spin it if you want, but you look foolish doing it

No matter what you want to measure JJ stacks up quite nicely against CP. The only thing JJ is missing is three years under his belt like CP.
Again time will tell, but I will take my chances with JJ. Just watch JJ run.
