    Way to go Bill. You somehow managed to take a budding star out of college and make him fit into your mold. He has been completely converted to what you wanted. I hope you're happy. I think the guy's whole NFL career is ruined thanks to your "coaching up".

    We should run the ball more for heavens sake if nothing else to keep it away from the other teams offense.

    The o-line we have(?) is a running back killer. Barber didn't do jack either. Replace Rivera, and we'll be a much better team. Bookmark this thread.

    I totally agree with your assessment. BP should send JJ an apology for what he's done to him. Took a free style runner, that had the capability of making something out of nothing, and turned him into a north south runner that lacks alusiveness. BP and his "Just trust the play," bull crap coaching.

    Imagine the threads if we trade Julius and he becomes a All-Pro.

    I truly don't want that to happen. I really believe we have something here with the 1-2 punch that we've used this year with JJ & MB3. I do, however, also believe Parcells has had an adverse affect on the development of JJ.

    I agree. If you look at the OL, none of them are great. But go from position to position. Adams has been OK, and you'll be hard pressed to find a better LT option you can REALISTICALLY replace him with. Kosier has been good enough. Gurode is playing pretty well. Colombo has been solid.

    Rivera consistantly commits penalties, misses blocks, gets driven back, etc.

    He's done.

    do a side by side comparison of 2004 to the **** we're seeing now and then write me an essay on how players have the ability to lose every ounce of talent and potential in such a fine manner

    I was a lonely voice claiming that BP was taking away JJs instincts that he showed in 2004. Now I see more and more people are agreeing with me. Not that that does JJ any good. Or the team.

    That's also a possibility. I know what I saw when he first came into the league though. Parcells has taken a wild mustang with potential and molded him into a show pony.

    Not that good? He had a 10 yard run today!

    Yeah the other 9 were for 0, 1, 3, 3, 2, 3, 1, 2 and 0.. but still!

    If you are not an assertive and confident person- JJ is not- it would be VERY hard to go counter to what Bill Parcells is telling you to do. TRUST THE PLAY. Real nice when there is no hole.

    MB did not exactly look good either. I did notice that most of the good plays we did have went LEFT. NOT up the middle or to the right. The three plays that MB got the first down on were ALL to the left. ALmost all of JJs runs were up the middle or to the right.
