    TJ was most impressive. His running action is just so smooth and he emerges from a crowd of defenders and runs some more. Very excited to have him at the Capstone for the next few years.

    He runs a little like Sherman Williams, who also battled running upright. They never got his really fixed. Yeldon has been coached well thus far.

    Re: T.J. Yeldon: the Real Deal.

    I love the "I" formation with Fowler leading the way, except for the TJ TD I don't think we gained less than 4 yds a carry. In addition to being an excellent, bruising runner it looks like Mr. Fowler is going to be a devastating blocker. I hate getting this excited after one game....

    Kinda reminds me of Wilbur Jackson running upright with feet low to the ground.

    Re: T.J. Yeldon: the Real Deal.

    It's still very, very early, but he reminded me a lot of a skinny Adrian Peterson. He broke through tackles like they were nothing, he hit the holes with great timing, he showed an abundance of moves to stay on his feet, but best of all there were a number of times where he carried defenders to get those extra yards. It was a very special performance, and just the fact that he got the majority of the carries tells you the confidence that the coaching staff has in him. If he stays healthy and continues to grow, I would dare say he may wind up being better than Trent, Mark, Shaun, or whoever else you would like to throw in there.

    Still it's early, so I'm going just going to sit back and enjoy the ride.

    reminds me of the obvious choices Dickerson and Allen. But another great runner he reminds me of is Gale Sayers. bigger than Sayers but the running style is similar.

    Hadn't thought of Gale Sayers. Very similar.

    Imagine next year having Fowler, Yeldon, Hart and Tyren Jones(HS) as your backs.

    I can see that.
    Imagine that plus Derrick Henry and Altee Tenpenny, and then throw in Bo Scarborough in 2014.

    Life is good!!
