Jackie is the new Jamaal

There's no denying it, Jackie's been doing a hell of a good job running the football lately. 55 yards on 10 carries vs. Minnesota, now 119 yards on 19 carries, finally getting some carries (and producing) after being third string at the beginning of his career. Remind you of someone? I'm not saying that Jackie should be starting over Jamaal next year, but should he be getting the majority of the carries right now? I sure think so. I don't believe in the McCluster experiment, Thomas Jones is a statue, and we need Le'Ron for blocking. Jackie has done great. We know he is... Tough, both mentally and physically. A hard runner, Battle Charge almost never gets taking down by arm tackles and always willing to lower his shoulder into someone. He also wants to take on some responsibility, and Todd wanted to give him some. He's closed up our last two wins with surprising explosiveness and determination. Sure, he's had fumbling problems in the past, but who's to say he hasn't done anything about it? Has he fumbled yet this season? We know he is a physical marvel, listed at 238 pounds.. He was clocked at 4.45 in his forty at his pro day (long ago, I know. But he was actually like 250 pounds at the time, for all we know he's even faster now). And finally, we know he wants to make a name for himself. He has said that he wants the ball, and wants everyone to know that he knows what to do with it. Is he our future? He's 28, so I'd say no. Temporary replacement for Jamaal, and possibly taking Thomas Jones' spot in the "smash and dash" duo? I can't see why not.
