    I love seeing young players succeed...

    Especially young players at crucial positions.

    Off the top of my head, we got:

    Cutler (starting QB for forseeable future)
    Mike Bell (no. 1/2 running back)
    Brandon Marshall (no. 2 receiver)
    Tony Scheffler (an extremely productive receiving TE)
    Eric Pears (starting tackle)
    Elvis Dumervil (situational rusher)
    Curome Cox (potential starting safety)
    Hamza Abdullah (if he learns how to play he could be a good in-the-box safety)
    Darrent, Dom, and Karl (2-4 corners for forseeable future)

    Then we've got guys on the way:

    Chris Kuper (next year's RG)
    Myers, Eslinger (interior depth/starters)
    Andre Hall (PS'er who could be a COP/KR next year)

    Solid...

    Lots of upside and production in that group...

      Don't forget Hixon as a solid KR next year as well.

        How important is a 1000 yard back?

        'Cos if it was me (and it ain't) Mike would be my starter the rest of the season, however long that is. In the last two weeks Tatum has done little besides score a TD for each of the teams we played, keeping them in games we should have won handily. I went from "let's make it 21-10 at the half, or at least 17-10!" to watching my team go to the locker room DOWN 17-14, and kicking off to start the second. I HATE giving teams extra possessions, and that's exactly what we did; when you score and the receive a kickoff, you got a freebie. He did have a big 20+ yard run on that pitch during the 99 yard drive, and that helped, but it wasn't like Javons reverse to the three on third down. The last two weeks we've played the Cards and Bengals and were able to overcome giving away a TD (actually, giving away two today. ) IF and when we're playing the Pats or the Ravens or someone, we won't have that luxury. We may have to put Alexander in with Foster on every down, and go max protect when we know the blitz is coming, because Mike's not a great blocker. But he protects the ball and scores TDs--for US. Nothing personal against Tatum; I supported putting Cutler in because I felt it was right for the TEAM even though I have tremendous respect for Jake. Same deal here.

        And yes, the young talent at virtually every position is outstanding. If our young guards are have as good as the rest of our rookies and sophomores we've got a dynasty once we address the interior of our defensive line.
