    Re: TJ Yeldon

    If he keeps going the way he has this year he may end up being the best back in Bama history

    TJ Yeldon

    He really looked like a skilled veteran the whole season.

    Re: TJ Yeldon

    I thought Yeldon shouldve started all season after the Michigan game since Lacy seemed to be around 85-90% early in the season. I gladly ate a large helping of crow watching Lacy run these past 4 games. truly amazed me, his spin move is jaw dropping considering his size. no way Lacy is only 220.

    onto Yeldon, just thinking he should be starting is a huge compliment. Yeldon will be very very special, heres to hoping he stays healthy and becomes a leader for us.

    Yes sir! I see what people said about him. I didn't go to A day last year and I saw what I missed in the Michigan game. Boy am I glad he didn't go inside that Barn!

    i have been amazed by how low key and humble he is. just gets up after the play and goes back to the huddle again.

    When Yeldon runs with the ball he reminds me of Frozone from "The Incredibles". He glides like he is skating and seems to slip away from tackles. Really uncanny.

    Yeah, he acts more like a five year NFL veteran. Unbelievably mature for his age. If he stays healthy he may break every rushing record we've ever had.

    He's amazingly developed, a truly natural runner, and his patience is truly amazing for someone so 'young'.

    Some comparative freshman numbers for perspective:

    Trent Richardson:   145     751     5.2     8      16    126    7.9     0
    Eddie Lacy:         56      406     7.3     6      2     18     9.0     0

    Imagine if he was the featured running back. He probably would have gone over 2,000 yards as a freshman, which is totally beyond imagination.

    I don't know, I've noticed a few times where an OL grabbed him and pulled him back to the huddle to stop him from talking trash. One in particular that comes to mind in in the SECCG when we were plowing UGA's D with the running game. He ripped a long one off and started to get in someone's face and Fluker grabbed him and turned him back to the huddle.

    I'm very appreciative of Yeldon, but we also need to remember that he got a lot of carries that would have went to Fowler or Hart and would have cut into his yardage totals. No doubt he's a great back, but his numbers are also bred from the circumstances around him.
    I've read the end of The Book and I know who wins!

    We will get to see it next year, as a true sophomore. I can't imagine that Eddie will be returning.
