He was amazing in 2004. 1300 total yards with 13 TDs to boot and he only started 11 games that year.
2005, JP Losman's rookie season, the entire offense was a trainwreck and it really hurted McGahee. Last year, the offense was pretty darn bad too. Baltimore's offense is a significant upgrade over Buffalo's. Baltimore had one of the top offense last season and have a decent line, solid QB, two solid WRs in Clayton and Mason, and a stud TE in Todd Heap. Plus, their top defense should give them a lot of short fields to work with. I don't have a problem with you saying you'll think Portis will do better, but I think the knocking of McGahee is unwarranted and possibly biased.
Yeah I was just about to say the same thing...Baltimore has a lot more going then Buf has in the past few years...
Maybe Mcgahee will run harder late in games when his team isnt down by 30
Baltimore has a legit shot at winning the AFC this year
