I do wish Torain had Hightower's more durable body or Hightower had Torain's vision.
I don't know what you're disagreeing about exactly. I'm telling you he's banged up. I'm not guessing that he is. He is

I don't think Hightower can do "power rushing" the way Torrain can.

Oh yeah...after 4 games have you guys notices the dramatic improvement in the interior line?...particularly at Center?

Have you guys seen the Center pushed back 5-10 times a game this year?
The Skins addressed one of our greatest weaknesses and boy...what a difference!
addressed it in house as well. good to see. while not an injury replacement i like that "next man up" philosophy. i know rabach went back to the ravens but with birk coming back then gurode coming on and now playing guard for them, and playing it well, im not sure he will ever start again barring major injuries. in fact, he might have been cut by the ravens.

No. It was a great catch by Bryant, that's all

I thought that was a pretty accurate observation. Was good to see Torain back in action. I said last year I thought he was the best back on the team and I still feel that way.

It could've been, I was only paying minimal attention. Didn't look like pasties though.

Re: The Running Game

It is Awesome having the quality and depth in the backs we have available. It apparently creates a healthy competition between them as well. REALLY great to ATV looking like that today......

Re: The Running Game

All I know is Hightower is going downhill statwise for 3 weeks in a row. I have him as my flex option and backup RB, but he might find himself on the bench ASAP. I have Sproles and Kendrick Smith as my young studs. I might try to use Hightower as trade bait.
