Don't forget the other back--Neal. His blocks were the key to most of the runs-- great job!!!!

Thank you - I was beginning to wonder did anyone see how much his play led to the success of the offense.

Do not stay out too long Willis players are known to loose starting spots because their backups get in and do well. I like the addition of Neal I felt a couple of hits he delivered in my living room. lets Go O

Mclain is like a tank, he can just crush you. That is a hell of a backfield, but it can't happen without the boys up front. That rotation of backs could wear down any defense. Hopefully they can play as a team and share the rotations. I would let McGahee sit for a few weeks and heal up correctly, there is no rush.

Trade McGahee for a big time deep threat reciever. Then trade Heap for a.....I have no idea what you could get for the glass man...maybe a used air pump.

Great team win!!! Great TEAM win!!!

...And that's what it's going to take for this TEAM to WIN. That includes the players on the field, yesterday, as well as the players who are about to take the field going forth - whether pressed into duty after recovering from injury, or as reserves spelling the starters.

You people with your hair-trigger reactions and your what-have-you-done-for-me-late ly attitudes make me laugh, until I realize YOU DON'T HAVE A CLUE!!!

Trade McGahee??? Trade Heap??? For who??? "DUH...I don't know, how 'bout for more air? My beer don't have enough bubbles".

Hey Einsteins, these guys leave it ALL on the field. They sacrifice it all. THAT'S HOW THEY GOT HURT!!! McGahee ran his @ss off last season and didn't give up on this team (his teammates), even when the game was lost (reference, for one: the MNF game vs. the Steelers, when he scored the lone touchdown when the game was basically already decided). Unlike our previous featured back, McGahee played hard throughout with no fear of getting hurt (which eventually happened).

Heap has and still lays it on the line. Yeah. He had a bad game, one of the few clouds on the "W" over Cincy. But weigh his bad games against his good, or even mediocre games, then...SHUT UP! Yeah, he got hurt again (we don't even know, at this point, if he's going to miss any games), but he did it sacrificing his body, like always, to make the play.

Yet, you want to cast these recovering warriors out as yesterday's garbage. On top of that, some of you question THEIR commitments. Why? Because you read some ego inflated so-called sportswriter's "expert" opinion? Or maybe it came from a disgruntled fan in Buffalo. It's certainly NOT the Sunday results we've seen, here.

TRADE 'EM, TRADE 'EM...And then you'll turn around and complain that Ozzie's not doing enough to improve the offense. "Why can't he sign the latest 'fad' FA big name"..."I don't care about the salary cap and which possible future key player has to be cut (i.e. Derek Anderson)"?

Bottom line: your posts make no sense, they lack logic. You sound like frustrated lil' haters, who need to turn your computers off and...maybe...WATCH A FEW REAL GAMES!

If given the chance you couldn't earn a particle of the neckring on Ozzie's collar, nor hold the weight of a drop of sweat in the jock of any name on the roster.
