    Juilius seems to miss open lanes on the other side of the line when running inside.

    I saw huge holes last game and he crashes ahead for 2 yards.

    Anyone know if BP is still coaching him away from cutting back?

    He's ninth in the league in rushing with over 800 yards (on track for 1,300) all the while splitting carries with another back.

    So he doesn't hit every single open hole. No back does. Get off the guy aready.

    He is not Emmitt ..... people need to get over it.

    There will never be another Emmitt.

    The Tandem of JJ and MB is a good backfield ..... we are lucky.

    BP says he's coaching him to keep his head up and see the field better. Julius gets stuffed once every 10 carries. Barber gets stuffed once every 27 carries, running behind the same line. I think Barber's first TD last week would've been another stuff for Julius.

    But Barber doesn't have JJ's speed, or his ability to make a subtle hint of a move and make somebody totally miss him. There were probably a couple of 10-yard runs by Julius that would have been 5-yarders for Barber.

    No back is above criticism, but I'm glad we're arguing about this, instead of about some other back we should have drafted. We traded a first round pick which turned into Spears, and at the same time got a great pair of RB's with different styles that defenses seem to have a lot of trouble adjusting to.

    We should sign you to play runningback then seeing as you saw all those holes from your living room.

    Jones isn't in the top 10 for a reason, give him a break.

    I honestly think he closes his eyes sometimes and just runs straight ahead. The combo of the two of them is good but I don't know if either of them would be all that great without the other.

    Barber gets the ball with the D spread and in the 2nd half after the D is tired. Barbers success depends on JJ just like JJ depends on Barber. Barber has started a couple games before how was his stats?

    Are you a scorned female?
    I never said JJ sucks.
    I have been noticing this trend and thought I would see if anyone else noticed.

    Settle down Francis!

    Decent but unspectacular, except against the Cardinals, when he looked good.

    I agree, JJ does seem to have a tunnel vision type running style, he's more of a juker than a cut and slasher, though, oddly, he's has a slashing type runner's build, he looks super fast. However he seems best served BAM up the middle , a little juke step then to the sideline IF possible.
    Also he made a brutal play not getting the first down v.s indy,we got lucky. That was laziness on his part.

    Exactly...

    BP is doing a great job of utilizing their strengths. It's working so no need to change it.

    I agree.

    Julius has terrible vision on the field. I find myself very frustrated when watching him run.

    Yes, while also implying that neither is very good in their own right. I was simply stating that it doesn't matter how good either of them are on their own as they work together though I personally feel they could both hold their own if it came down to it. In any case, it doesn't matter. That's just my opinion.

    I can't help but wonder what some people are watching! Do you realize that JJ had 53 yards rushing and 15 yards receiving in the 2nd half alone on Sunday? Do you realize that he had 104 yards on 25 touches in that game? He had a very good game despite the colts playing their best defensive game of the year. He was largely responsible for our 2 td drives in the 2nd half, and did a very good job on blitz pickup all day long.

    He certainly isn't perfect, but he is having a great year, and people are just never happy.
