    Let's face it, the guy runs harder everytime he touches it than just about any back in football. He hits the hole immediatly, doesnt dance and never loses yards. I like Julius and what he's done, but Barber is 5th in the league in runs of 10+ yards and really seems to have more of a determination to run hard than Jones.

    I like Barber too, but Parcells knows him some football. How many second stringers look awesome in spot duty? Hambrick *cough*

    You get to run harder when you have fresher legs...

    man this is gonna be a "Chicken vs Egg" debate for years.

    Well at least were not squabbling over crappy running backs.

    Barber is a beast, no doubt. But credit the coaches for giving him carries at down & distances that best suit his talents. He hits the hole hard on goalline runs and gets a lot of draws on third & long. From the stands today, it was clear that he converted at least two third downs when the team was prepared to punt (i.e. not prepared to pass). I still like JJ on first and second downs because he's more elusive. It's a blessing to have both.
