    Congrats to AP. He is leading the league in rushing!

    Yes he is... and with 263 yards, he is on track for that 2000 yard season.

    I wonder how many teams had a 2000 yard rusher and a losing record?

    Yards don't mean a damn thing if they don't have a touchdown at the end of them.

    See... it's all AD's fault... if he'd start breaking them to the end zone instead of just 25 - 30 yards we'd be 2-0!

    Wait wait... lets blame the WRs for not holding their down field blocks long enough to allow AD to score!

    AD rocks... line has played well... but tell me this... do we think AD has those yards because D Coordinators aren't copying what they did last year, because AD now knows how to beat stacked boxes, or because the passing game in the pre-season with the addition of Berrian has caused the D to play honest, at least in the first half?

    I think it's the 3rd... AD has seen a lot less stacked boxes, especially in the first half of games.
    I haven't seen nearly as many run blitzes as I saw last year.
    Seems like we're seeing more straight up D's which explains AD's success...
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.

    I'm not criticizing AD at all.
    I'm criticizing how our offense doesn't take advantage of the opportunity he gives them.
    All the stats in the world mean jack if we lose the game.

    maybe the Lions. I don't remember their record and I am not going to look it up, but I would say they have the best chance

    *sighs*
    I was joking dude
    AD's been great though I'm curious why he keeps getting yanked on 3rd downs... potentially cause he's winded due to running on 1st and 2nd... coaches want fresh legs?
    His blocking looked good in the pre-season.
    Who knows... I'm having a hard time understanding the coaching staff.

    I would google Detroit Lions and Barry Sanders

    That should answer it.
