Cassel > Jones

I'm not sure if LJ would be much of a drop off in yards gained

Oh, c'mon. TJ is good for at lease 1.5 yards each carry. Sometimes he even breaks off a long one for 2 whole yards.

I think we have some kind of policy against benching players for poor performance... Did I miss something?

McClain will be just as awful IMO.

Didn't you hear Dan Fouts? He talked about Jones great career and said, "he is a viable replacement for Charles. Today he has 12 carries for 29 yards." Wow....grasping for straws I guess.

I must say, I was impressed with McCluster today. He ran hard and if Bowe's hurt he's our only potential playmaker.

McClain has some valid uses. He was really strong and a pro bowl fullback who could carry the ball before he came to us. He shouldn't be underestimated.

I must admit that Jones has hit the wall. He's running in concrete cleats now.

As a total aside, I ran a half-marathon today that had three creek crossings in it. I tend to wear thick socks and it's surprising how much you slow down and get tired when you're carrying a bunch of water on each foot for the last 5 miles.

Mccluster would be a great complimentary player on a winning team...he has a lot of value.
