    The longest run in 2014 was by Juwan Thompson. It was a weak side run to the left with Orlando Franklin throwing the key block in an unbalanced line look. Juwan made some nice moves and ran through some tackles for 47 yards.

    The second longest run in 2014 was a 37 yarder by Ronnie Hillman. C.J. had a 27 yarder and Montee had a 23.

    The longest run of 2013 was a 45 yarder by Montee Ball at KC. The key block was thrown by Virgil Green on Dontari Poe. Knowshon had a 31 yarder that year.

    Willis McGahee and Ronnie Hillman had 31 yarders in 2012. The longest run in 2011 was a 60 yarder at Oakland by Willis McGahee. It came from the tandem tackle over unbalanced line formation in a Single Wing Look.

However the other part of me says why keep a guy like Hillman when we can likely find a different RB who can play more at the level of Thompson, Anderson & Ball and can play a more well rounded game....It becomes a question of value. Does a player who can only be used sparingly make sense taking up a roster spot instead of a player who can be used in multiple situations. I say multiple situations is better, personally.
    Hill an has been touted as the COP RB. But so far he has not broken a big run for a TD whereas the others all have had as good a long TD as he has. (Going off of me sort on this ) might be wrong. But Anderson pulled off a spectacular catch and run for a BIG TD last year that sparked IMO a lethargic team up to that point.

    Was IMO the turning point in the game.

    Let be me straight with everyone. I like big backs 220 PLUS. I'll take the average 4 yards all day long. Wear that defense down until later in the fourth they are dog tired and just wanting to get off the field. That is when those 4 Yarders become 8-10 yards at a clip.

    I just do not see smaller than 220 back able to do that consistently. They flat can not take the pounding that a 5'8" 220 pounder can.

    Let those LB and Safeties get hit by the bigger backs a day and they just can not deal with it. Then the tired arm tackles happen.

    If our OL can open holes then we have a chance to make some long afternoons for defenses.

    Listen to this video. This kid is amazing. His attitude, confidence and will to win is really infectious. He said a statement that really got to me. We all said that he was one of the guys who played his heart out, especially in the divisional game. At section 6:49 His take, "I feel I left a lot out there. At the end of the day, I didn't do enough to win the game and I feel responsible for that. I didn't get in the EZ. That's unacceptable. I need to get better."

    Wow, we are feeling like he was the one who put it all out there and he is feeling like he didn't do enough. Gotta love this guy.

    As for Hillman sorry I did not see anything special out of him.
    Maybe Kubes can find a spot for him but I like Bibbs and the other guy better.

    It wasnt until hillman got injured that cj ended up being the guy.

    You're referring to a different coaching staff who clearly miss-evaluated some of our players. What i have failed to understand is why Hillman has not be used in a return game since has has not performed overly well as a RB. To directly respond to the question of age...yes he was very young when drafted but years of experience in the league should correct that....and it didn't.
    100% agree. I think with a training camp worth of training he might be an awesome KR/PR

    CJ was pretty much a star every game he played last season. He made some amazing plays, and I love his ability to create yards. Plus his attitude is outstanding! I have to admit, I did not see it coming. Now I'm sold!!!

    But I have been a CJ fan from day one.

    It should be good to have three plus qualities RBs.

    IDC, weigh 265 for all I care, just keep pounding the rock
    Iirc that 268 is Duncan the FB/TE.

    Looking forward to seeing what CJ does this year.
    CJ (& company) will light it up in the old Broncos-style ZBS.
