My sentiments exactly. Call it luck, fate or whatever it was when Jerome was picked up from the Rams when everyone said he was washed up, but you never know what Duce has left to offer. We can all be irritated because of the injuries but there's no denying when he's healthy, that's the style of running we all want to see. Just like we all wanted Hines back in camp because of his leadership abilities and knowledge, we need to make sure the same continuity is in place when Jerome retires with the RB's. Don't get carried away too quick about getting rid of him this early in the pre-season. Just my thoughts.
