    JF has lost some baby fat and replaced it with pure muscle. He reminds me a bit of Le'ron with the way he runs with authority. BTW, it's "Lacy." "Lacey" plays basketball for us...

    He probably doesn't mind - as long as you talk about him...

    He does run with authority. If the word on his hands is true he's going to be a huge problem for some teams in the future. The versatility he gives us is going to make DCs across the conference stay awake all night.

    They said that was his "is it worth it or not" step. When you break everything down, Alexander was a TD machine, that was by far his biggest strength. I have paid attention to HS recruits since Alexander and I have only seen a handful of the blue chips through the years hit the 50 TD mark in a season, much less 3,000 yards to go with it. Still not sure how we got Alexander Coach Saban would have had him on the field day # 1, I know that.

    I'm very impressed with Yeldon overall, but his 'glide' is truly superb.

    That said, I don't think I've ever seen a FR RB that had the vision & patience to allow the blocks and holes to open up. Truly breathtaking to watch in action. He's going to be an all-timer.

    I couldn't agree any more. Exactly what I think --- when I saw him run, it looked effortless like he was running in slow motion, with nobody catching him.
    The first time I saw Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson run, I thought they would become superstars. This kid when I saw him run, I thought to myself, "This kid IS a superstar"

    Just about with all our great backs let us know on their 1st series what to expect. TJ continues the tradition.

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

    My only slight citicism of Yeldon is that he needs to allow his downfield blockers to make their blocks before charging directly into the defenders...lol. The guy is just too darned fast and impatient.

    Go back and look at the video...a couple of times he charged straight ahead and past his blockers into a defender's arm. He's gonna be a great one, but, IMHO - and what do I know?! - he had at least 2 chances to take it to the house but didn't wait on his blockers. He'll get coached up...

    Had he done that, he wouldn't have averaged 10.1 YPC...

    I have, watched the game three times now - I guess we agree to disagree. TJY is the most patient FR RB I think I've ever seen, and likely one of the top10 most patient runners I've watched in the last few decades. His maturity is far beyond his years.

    Perhaps your knowledge / appreciation for the finer points are more honed than mine, but from my view point, his patience / vision is superlative.
