He had an entire off season to get heathly. I thought this was his year to prove that his record ( almost) setting year was no fluke? WTF?

Maybe he went through more than what was reported while he was in jail.

I haven't watched any Ravens games yet this season, so I haven't seen how he's been running this year (this week's MNF should fix that tho), but from what I remember last year, Jamal doesn't seem to have the power he used to.

LOL!

It's not the power that is his problem, it's his quickness. He is not getting to the hole fast enough and it is closing on him. He just doesn't have the explosiveness that he once had. That is why I felt he would be a 're-bust' again this year.

He lost a step and his stiff arm doesn't seem to be as effective as it once was. He can't break tackles as easily as he used to also. I still think he will get better as the season progresses and there is no point in trading him when he has no value at the moment.

I wouldn't drop him yet. Just to make sure: watch him suck this week on your bench, then drop him.
