    That guy was running like he was back in Austin stealing televisions. I hope we can develop him into the bad *** he appears to be...

In all fairness though, Cassel did better than I expected him to do with the team he is on. He has a lot of potential as well as Charles does but they may need another year or 2, to fully reach it.

    What's most impressive about Charles was his ability to turn losses into gains. Several times he was met in the backfield by defenders and he was able to get 1-2 yard gains. That to me is the sign of an awesome running back. I'm probably going out on a limb this early, but this is the same characteristic that Barry Sanders had that made him so great.

    I have been impresse3d with Charles especially given our line and FB that block for him. I'd love to see more screens or him coming off blocks out of the backfield cathing passes like Reggie. He is gonna need some help I dont think his body can ake the abuse over the next few years if he keeps it up like he is. Or maybe if Merriman gets kicked out of the league we can have a healthy back for a few years.. I hate that POS Merriman

    Well, in Barry's case, he would turn a three yard loss into an eightteen yard loss, into a a 1 yard gain, then into a six yard loss, only to wind up gaining five yards on the play.

    Never seen another one like that guy.

    Yep!!! I think Barry also had a fumble problem. But my memory is not so good. He was fun to watch play. To bad it was the Lions he was playing for, until he just gave up.

    Just for the record, nope.

    3,062 carries (plus 352 catches), and only lost 13 fumbles. (27 total) That's 126 carries per fumble and 263 carries per lost fumble.

    And, with 154 games, that averages out to one fumble per 5.6 games. And just over one lost fumble per season.

    Very well known for being quite reliable with the ball in his hands. (unless you are old as dust, and the memory is going.)
