He has shown NOTHING yet. His preseason numbers are a JOKE. They all came in the 2nd half against 2nd string or worse defenses.
DAL Oline obviously cannot runblock. They are giving Testy plenty of time to throw and thats a huge plus for DAL, but to consider them a decent runblocking unit? no way.
Im sorry for the negativity in my post, but the Julie Jones wishful thinkers are getting to me.
Dallas ranked 12th in rushing last year with Hambrick as the starter. Yes, Troy "260 pounds" Hambrick. If he can get 950 and 5 TD's, Julius can get 1,110 and 7 TD's, given enough carries.
I'd be more worried about Reshard Lee cutting into his carries than Eddie George. George is washed up and will likely see his role reduced as the season goes on. By the way, Cornbread, Julius DID see some time with teh 1st team offense (against 1st team defenses) and averaged 4.7 a carry.
