    Hate to admit it, but Gilbert is being outplayed by Adams.

    Still have faith in Gilbert though- he was good last season. Not a bad spot to be in if DeCastro & Gilbert are not certainties to step in next season..

    My guess is that with this blocking, some of the runs we've seen would become loooong runs with Mendy. Willie Parker would've had 200 yards today.

    I'm not so sure, a lot of the yards gained by Redman were after initial contact was made.

    The O-line gelling is giving the backs the crease they need to make yards, after that the backs are always falling forward for extra yards and they are running through a lot of tackles. The line is providing the opportunity and the backs are doing their job.

    I love the way Redman and Dwyer have been pushing the pile forward when you think they are stopped. I know this will probably result in a fumble here and there but it fires me up when they do it. I can only imagine how it riles up the offensive linemen.

    Hey! Flippy and I trademarked those nicknames for ourselves...you can't just go giving them out to Colon and Foster all willy-nilly like that!

    One could almost agree to your statement if those three could actually be healthy together more than two weeks in a row. Still way too many unknowns for that group to dismiss Mendenhall as redundant. The reality is he did it better longer than the three your mention. Heck, Rainey got a rib bruise and you would have thought that a Giant put a .45 cal round in his chest the way he collapsed and rolled around in pain. IMO the jury is still out whether his great talent can survive in the NFL.

    Mendy is still very much needed and will thrive under Haley.

    Do we give out injury bonuses or something? Rainey's hit should have been flagged... maybe they told him to go down on the field so they would show the replay over a few times to piss off Goodell?

    If he was faking he needs to go to Hollywood in the off season and pick up a few extra bucks.
