"Jones-Drew, who led UCLA to a 10-2 mark in 2005 and currently plays for the Jacksonville Jaguars, had breakaway ability.

Rodgers does not. "

Oh wow! This statement is so very, very wrong. Watching this kid all through highschool, trust me, he has breakaway speed. It just hasnt happened on the college level yet with all the focus on him but wait and see he is gonna break some long ones in his career. I've never seen him run down from behind. You might be able to horsecollar him but if not you certainly arent running him down.

I am a UCLA fan and I always will be. And, I think Neuhiesel will get it turned around in a couple of years. But now days their hard to watch, and the way you can tell the UCLA offense is doing good is when they have a third down and ten instead of third down and 14.

“USC=Greatest team of BCS era!”

Burn, baby, burn!

Definitely *ouch*. Isn't he just a freshman, without any real OL talent in front of him? Let him get some experience and better OLs, and let's see what happens.

Like I always said about Barry Sanders. He's the greatest RB in pro football ever! Think about it: everything he did, he did for the Detroit Frickin' Lions with no real OL in front of him. Imagine what he would have accomplished with Emmitt Smith's O-line?
