Like the rest of you, I am deeply saddened by the worsening news surrounding the health of Felix Jones. If there is any truth to the notion that Felix's season may be in jeopardy, then one other fact becomes blatantly true: We have got to get Tashard Choice involved in this offense, and we have got to do it now.
Though Marion Barber's style makes us want to believe that he draws from some endless well of energy, even he will wear down as the season hits the bell lap. If we cant get Tashard Choice to at least pick up 8 carries a game here in a hurry, Marion Barber will be dead by the playoffs, if he even has enough fuel to help us get there.
I know that the coaches know more about these players than we ever will. I'm sure Choice may have some deficiencies in some areas, probably blitz pick-up like most young backs. But sometimes a situation arises in which you've got to just play the rookie, whether he is completely ready or not. They've just got to trust him. If Choice can't provide an occasional breather, it's hard to imagine Barber being Barber in January.
P.S.........Mark me down for Pacman on full time kick return duty with Felix and Miles out.
