I don't know beng brew....I am kinda with you!

Why does edge need a breather right after a quarter break?
For those who are counting...Rhodes had almost 25% of the carries, does that mean that James needs a break 25% of the time.

Yeah, I wish Rhodes was carrying on the last goalline run, but all in all, I think they put in Rhodes to take a look at him for the future. My new paradigm....I think they are looking for a taking small little snapshot looks at an RB for the future. Edge might only have 15 games left with them.

P.S.
I have James on my roster and I'm pissed about tonight...LOL!
not that that affects my opinion...LOL!

Yes, James should be rested for 25% of the carries if the Colts rush the ball 40 times. Does everyone not realized that Edge carried the ball 30 times tonight. 30 carries for 142 yards and 29 yards receiving. Man, that is one hell of a game. Take away that last fumble he had, and you can maybe add a touchdown to his stats.

All I can say is that James looked fabulous. You could certainly tell that he is truly back from his torn ACL a few years back. He was quick to hit the holes and to make cuts. This game should make Edge owners feel real good about the rest of the season.

Also, after Ricky Williams retired everybody brought up the number of carries he has gotten the last few years as a reason for his decision, including four 30+ carry games last season. Now people want Edge to carry the ball 42 times in one game (just like Ricky last year)???

Except for the 2 fumbles, how could anyone be disappointed with Edgerrin James' performance? Hell of a game.

Yeah, go to the FA wire and pick up Arthur Rhodes.

He's the greatest RB since Michael Jordan!!!

I knew it!

I predicted before the season that Edge would be a top 5 RB this year.

He is going to be a stud this year, he looked great.

When Edge left the game and Rhodes scored the td it was only because he needed a break. After a big run play, Edge spun his 2 hands to let the coachs know he needed a break. The staff cleaned Edge up and before he could get back in the game Rhodes already scored a td.

Rhodes is not the goal-line back, he just happened to spell him at that time.

Edge got 30 carries. Put up some great numbers. He easily could have had 2 td's. Edge fans should be really happy.

Edge looked super super awesome. If they need to give Rhodes -- or maybe K-Rod, or Danny Kolb -- some carries to keep him this awesome all season long, so be it. The TD's will come at some point. Wow. I am excited.

he should start getting it more if Tiki James can't hold on to the ball.


I agree. How many games is he going to lose them before they think about a vulture?

He did look good between the 20's.

Rodge,
try lookin' up facetious in the dictionary.

Did you not see how I ended my transmittal (I am guessing you did since you quoted it).



For better or for worse, give the poster a break, people make grammar, syntax, morphological mistakes. I am CERTAIN that you all have too. I have!
So lets stick to talking about football, not being friggin' english teachers.

If you wanna test your incredible knowledge of grammar then IM me you incredible brainiacs..........I'll put my 144 IQ against ya!

Otherwise, shut up and talk about football

In my post I didn't talk about football? Are we reading the same one?

Sorry man,
I should have segregated that better.

I was only referring to you in the first sentence. I was referring to the rest of this thread in the rest on my post.

I was saying to you that I was just providing a bit of levity. Not really being serious. B/C I have Edge on my team.

Oh, I get it now. Yeah, the Arthur Rhodes thing was an honest mistake. Try using the emoticons though, Diablo.
