I'm not on the bandwagon.......but Blaylock ran the ball very well last night indeed......as he has in the majority of his limited touches.

I still think he's a spot player, and not a 20 carry back.

Blaylock is a 3rd down 5 carry guy imo, but he does well in those carries, i think LJ is the better long term solution.

I'd prefer to see Larry Johnson get his hands on the ball some in these situations. He is our future and the experience would be well worth it. But I'll take the performance Baylock has given us, yes indeed.

blaylock did a very good job in relief of holmes. maybe is it just the view from the rancho gaz couch, but he seems to lack either holmes patience or vision. still, he did the job when he was called upon.

good enough for me.

We are wasting away talent on the bench, i like blaylock but his rapping sucks, we were forced to listen to it at halftime up at hte fox and the hound last night, they were pimpin it hardcore at half.

Blaylock is fast, shifty and has decent hands. He was too easy to tackle at first, but he's improved quite a bit in that regard.

Larry Johnson would have had 3 TDs given those carries.

Dick Vermeil is a moron for not using last night's national stage to showcase LJ and increase his trade value.

Don't trade lj he wont get us shit, it will be good to have him around when priest is gone.

He would get us a lot if Vermeil wasn't senile and used our nationally televised games to showcase his amazing abilities other than folding his arms and looking stern and alienated.

The best thing about Derrick Blaylock is that we selected him with the throw away fifth round pick that St. Louis included with Tony Horne and Trent Green for our first round pick in 2001.

Oh. Yeah. And then there's the small matter of the Rams getting Damione Lewis with that #12 pick. I think he has close to 50 career tackles now in three plus seasons.

As Nelson Muntz would say: "HA-HA."

LJ needs to learn to be a team player before he gets a chance to carry the rock. His reaction to the diaper comment was so baby-ish it's pathetic. Blaylock is the clear #2 and a damn good one. If Blaylock or Holmes were to be out we could really use LJs skills but he may weigh to much to carry around just in case. :shake:

Last night was not the night to use LJ. We needed a win at all costs and it was not the time to see what Johnson could do. I trust Vermeil in his assessment of the two back-ups.

Wrong.

LJ was a first round pick and <b>any</b> time is the right time to showcase his abilities. LJ earned the right to start by playing well enough at Penn state that we drafted him earlier than we should have. Last night was the best opportunity to showcase him since the game against Houston.

Trust DV? Riiiight.

I've heard that a lot over the past couple of years, but ...

<table border=1>
<tr>
<td>Player</td><td>Height</td><td>Weight</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Holmes</td><td>5-9</td><td>213</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Blaylock</td><td>5-9</td><td>210</td>
</tr>

That's where the comparison ends.

Seems to be a durability concern, not an ability concern. I don't recall him being injured in the past, did I miss something?

Blaylock did everything asked of him last night.

No complaints.














And he doesn't need a diaper.
