Off-topic for a second:


Be glad we don't have McDummy anymore. Dude is shitting it up in his Vikings debut.

6/11.....40 yards....3.6avg......62.7 QB rating.

Anything in the 20 and 30's and you can market it as fast for a running back. However the only guys that can get away with being fast and still wearing 40 are safeties.

40's are for Fullbacks and Tight Ends that want to be cool.

Just look at how many 40's there are here.
pro bowl fullback - Google Search

Lorenzo Neal, Mike Alstott, Tony Richardson, Vontae Leach, Mike Sellers, Lawrence Vickers.

You want to wear a 40 number you have to be a complete bruiser. (see Stephen Davis and Ryan Torain).

Ladell Betts wore 46 and I wouldn't call him a bruiser by any stretch lol.

Once upon a time, Peyton Hillis wore #22...
But he broke out for good while wearing #40.

There are exceptions but lets wait to see if he can beat the Madden curse. Still he broke out as a bruiser so my indestrutible theory is still indestructible. You can't give a guy with 80 yard to the house speed a number in the 40's!

George Rogers wore # 38 and wore it well, I like #39.

I like Hightower in that #39 jersey and he does remind me of smaller Steven Jackson of the Rams.

Well if you can remember Larry Csonka, he wore #39 for the Dolphins for many years. He was bulldozer in the 1970's but not as fast as Hightower. Tim is a smaller version of Steven Jackson for the Rams.

Something else I liked about our game.

No sacks allowed by our offense!
