    One guy does not an offensive line make. There are five on a line, and you run behind all 5.

      <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
      <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

        OK, so that makes the point irrelevant. Signing Bigg and getting Garret make no difference whatsoever.

          read what people write and you will understand the reasoning. It is mentality, not physical ability people are talking about. I believe Jones is going out right now and trying too hard to make the big play, because he has limited time. I don't think he is relaxed and just reacting, instead I think he is thinking too much. That is just assumptions, but it isn't anything that is hard to believe. There have been hundreds of athletes that have shown that happens, and say that happens.

            OK Trips J your an old timer...but your JJ love is sickening in here.

            Running backs are ranked according to DPAR, or Defense-adjusted Points Above Replacement. This number represents the total number of points scored due to plays where this RB carried/caught the ball, compared to a replacement-level RB in the same game situations. DPAR (and its cousin, PAR, which isn't adjusted based on opponent)
            • 29-C.Brown TEN 9.8 1
              32-E.James ARI 8.4 2
              24-M.Barber DAL 8.1 3
              29-J.Addai IND 7.8 4
              34-L.Jordan OAK 7.7 5
              20-T.Henry DEN 7.7 6

            These are the top 6 runners according to PAR (explained above) through week 2.

            Lets go onto more stats.

            The next statistic given is DVOA, or Defense-adjusted Value Over Average. This number represents value, per play, over an average RB in the same game situations. The more positive the DVOA rating, the better the player's performance. DVOA (and its cousin, VOA, which isn't adjusted based on opponent)
            • 29-C.Brown TEN 45.2&#37; 4
              32-E.James ARI 27.8% 10
              24-M.Barber DAL 65.4% 1
              29-J.Addai IND 25.9% 11
              34-L.Jordan OAK 28.9% 9
              20-T.Henry DEN 24.6% 12

            As you can see the 2nd number is once again the ranking. And once again MB3 is towards the top.

            The final statistic is Success Rate. This number represents the player's consistency, measured by successful running plays (the definition of success being different based on down and distance) divided by total running plays. A player with higher VOA and a low success rate mixes long runs with downs getting stuffed at the line of scrimmage. A player with lower VOA and a high success rate generally gets the yards needed, but doesn't often get more. Success Rate is further explained here. It is not adjusted for opponent.
            • 29-C.Brown TEN 68% 2
              32-E.James ARI 56% 9
              24-M.Barber DAL 48% 17
              29-J.Addai IND 67% 3
              34-L.Jordan OAK 50% 16
              20-T.Henry DEN 43% 28
              26-C.Portis WAS 62% 5

            I think this one is the one that hits closest to home. As described above MB3 Has a high VOA and a bit lower Success rate. Basically means he is stuffed at the line but breaks off some big runs. However his success rate isn't low...just lower for him.

            Now lets take a look at JJ's numbers using the same three stat measures.

            Just another point to make here

            Let just take a quick glance at 2006 rankings. Since there is a little more data their then just two weeks.
            • MB3 - Overall Rank

              Wow, lots of stats. Dunno what any of them mean.....

              Eyes don't fool ya ... Marion is better. Team plays better with him there too.

              What reasons JJ has are irrelevant in comaprison to his results. His results are mediocre (as Thule's data shows)

              Marion Barber, to me, is 15 pounds of muscle away from being Jerome Bettis II.

              And I am concerned about health b/c I think he may be a little too light to run like he does without some extra padding.

              The guy looks like they lit his head on fire just about every damn play.

                Well let me say that i for one am just glad to be 2-0. Barber may be better but we do have the highest scoring team in the league right The way this will probably play out this will be JJ's last year here anyway. When you think about it were 2-0 without 4 key starters a Q.B. that some say has bad mechanics a Defensive backfield that some say cant cover an overrated O-line and a front office that has no clue on how to build a team. I am just elated that we have started off so strong. Some say the Eagles are the team to beat in this division because they have supierior talent/coaching/front office people but I just have to believe that we will somehow overcome all of our weaknesses to win the east. I know thats going against some peoples beliefs but as a blind fan until proven otherwise I will believe.

                  that may very well be true, but the fact remains, we are using 2 backs, both get the same carries, and same opportunities, one is outperforming the other by leaps and bounds, the offense moves better with the other in, and the other is alot more complete....


                  my point is that, you go off of how well you play when given a chance, thats what this league is all about...thats like is saying we need to give troy hambrick a chance because he doesnt do much with 15 carries a game he needs more to get going...i just dont buy alot of the arguments people are giving...

                  as much as people complain about Barber getting the defense when their tired, what do you guys think he does to the defense when he is in there for JJ only to come back into? he gets defenses that are tired in the 2nd half, and he gets carries inside the 20 yd line....we arent seeing anymore 40 yd runs when the defense is tired, we dont see him break any tackles, we dont see the offense move as well when he is in...so whatever stats you use, or however you wanna say each guy does or doesnt perform because of certain factors, one thing doesnt lie, and thats how they perform when the ball is in their hands...

                    I guess you missed it in my first post, but I said Jones is not a good fit for the current Cowboys.

                    As for Hambrick he is more of an example of Barbers situation. Did great with limited carries, but dropped off once he got more carries. Not saying that absolutely would happen to Barber, but that is what people worry about and it is valid.

                      I do agree with not fitting for us, BBD said something about having a fullback and i could see that working out better for him...


                      and as well that may be a concern like what happened wit hambrick, but you also have to look at lamont jordan being a backup then being a great feature back who you could of easily said he just does well because he's behind curtis martin, same thing for michael turner...if your a good back then your just good, your going to produce whether you get 15 or 25 carries i believe...


                      i dont even think we should make barber a workhorse, hell im still all for starting JJ, just think the carries should be split 20/10 in barbers favor no matter who starts

                          Team that is caring me is Washington. Looks like that D is back and Campbell is not as bad as anticipated.

                          Don't they are better than us but when G Williams gets that D rolling -- you gotta be concerned.

                            I would say jury is out on what he can be. That Raiders line was horrid last year ... and playing from behind every game practically ,... and I think he was injured for some time.

                            He has looked good so far in 2007. I give Lamont an incomplete.

                              yea fair enough. I was thinking about 05 more than 06 for those reasons, but even in 05 the o-line was awful.

                                Lamont Jordan has had 2 good games this year. I know cause I have him on my fantasy team LOL. I'm expecting good numbers against Cleveland.
