Could he be following in the Priest's footsteps?

I got him in round 16 of 23 and also play in a keeper league.
Very happy I got him that late too. Could be fantastic sleeper.

I have seen nothing of his play this exhibition season, not that I'd put too much stock into it, but it seems to me that the biggest drawback to Chester's career is that he can't get you the tough yards consistantly. Even in college he was a guy would have 8 carries for 17 yard then take a long run to the house.

Has that changed? Is he learning how to read and wait on blocks?
He is one exciting player and a handcuff if you own Lewis.

i don't agree with that assessment (for both college and NFL). he has always gotten the yardage he 'needs' and, quite often, more.

the times he has filled in for jamal have been, in one word, outstanding. he can run, he can block, he can catch the ball. he doesn't appear to have top end speed, yet he is hard to tackle and makes people miss. trung candidate was fast. he also sucks. the best RB's aren't always the fastest.


This assessment looks to be dead on except for one topic-his blocking. He has been absolutely run over by defenders on more than one occasion this preseason and has been a contributing factor in the lack of protection for Boller. Just like people argue for/against Arrington and other backs who can't block at an NFL level, it is a problem that needs to be worked on.

well, maybe the games i caught he just ate his wheaties.

either way, though, highly impressed by him (even in college at toledo) and the fact that phil savage (former baltimore head of scouting who drafted taylor) and ozzie newsome (current baltimore GM who also drafted taylor) were fighting over him really is a telling story.

yup, and that's why he's not going to get more PT this year to give Jamal a break. If he comes in we gotta run, otherwise Boller's gonna be on his wazoo

he could go to cleveland who after this year will probably be back at the drawing board again. He could go to Pittsburgh which would be an ideal situation if bettis leaves and duce might as well. Edge will be gone, other guys will leave that we can't predict as well.
