    Quick decisions, good judgment, fast, strong, lots of moves, gets the tough yardage more often than not. Could he become an elite RB? One can only hope.

    Not enough burst to become an elite QB but he and Ridley will be the difference between a first round exit or a deep playoff run.

    Run the ball like today and we won't be beat, even if Brady and the pass protection are having an off day.

    He is a workhorse. I don't think he'll ever be AP, CJ2K elite though

    The real deal? Yes. 1000 yds and 13 tds last year proved that. Elite? Ha. No.

    When did one need burst to be a good QB?;)

    He ran tough today. Give the OLine props, too. More often than not they were giving him huge holes to run through. Especially on those outside runs.

    I think we were a little too predictable with Ridley, they were on top of him as soon as he got the ball most times.

    The lawfirm ..is a good plow-horse ....and plays within the system. Not elite but you dont need elite...with our offense....and the plus is ....he never fumbles...let the gang green trolls eat crow....

    BenJarvus didn't do anything we shouldn't expect him to do. He ran hard, he picked up yards on contact and most importantly was reliable with ball in hand.

    Look forward to the Law Firm teaching those qualities to our young backs and developing an exciting backfield for a decade.

    He has now scored 18 TDs since the start of the 2010 season, the most rushing TDs of any player in that span.

    He is now tied for #2 in rushing TDs by any RB for this season.

    New career high today of 136 yards on 27 carries for a 5 YPC. Kudos to him for a good day.

    He's the most underrated player in the NFL. Great game by Benny.

    I hear you. And just so you know, I meant no harm. I was just teasing a little, as I obviously knew what you meant. Thanks for taking it in stride and not overreacting like so many others around these parts would have.

    Yes, but he's also clearly improving as time passes.
