    In the aftermath of the great win, I want to see what people think about the Sammy Morris injury. any tidbits of news on this?

    I am very concerned -- Fred Taylor's return is speculative.
    Koolaid is inconsistent.
    and the Law Firm is a great sub.

    I'd hate to see Faulk having to take more or a beating running the ball.

    The brilliance of the RB by committee approach lets the team survive some of these key injuries. On the other hand, our committee is getting hammered.

    thoughts?

    I hate to say I told you so but this is exactly what I feared would happen. I think Pats should be ok at RB. LoMo looked pretty good first half and second half, he suddenly remembered he had to tap dance again. I mean if he put his head down and just run straight, this guy is pretty good back. Seems like he is always trying to hit a home run instead of getting consistent yardage. Hope Titans game was good confidence building game for him.

    One thing I noticed about LoMo yesterday was when they showed his foot, he takes awful lot of steps. I understand footwork is important for RBs but in traffic, is that much necessary?

    Both run defenses were putrid yesterday as footing was tough but without shouting from the rooftops that LoMo has turned the corner and salvaged his season and resurrected his career, I don't remember him "tippy-toeing" as much as he did yesterday when going forward. He seemed more patient in letting the blocking develope in front of him and once he saw that creese, hit the hole.

    Glad LoMo did well, but I'd like to see him string a few games like this past one together....

    LoMo has been doing the exact same thing all season

    just this time the defense didnt meet him right as he got the ball, and the Oline finally opened holes
