... and three third-down conversions per game.

NOTE: 4 TDs isn't great... but, considering everything else that AB brings, his TDs are sort of a "bonus" (for lack of a better word).

Those are AB's stat projections.

And, he already has "less than Fitz" money.

Some players around the league have said before too that they thought AB was better than Wallace, maybe it's true
A lot of times, teams put their best CB on #2 and double #1, especially if both receivers are good. If it were Wallace and Limas Sweed, Aso would have been on Wallace.

No...if Wallace continues at the average he's had for the 1st 4 games, he'd finish out the season with about 1000 yards.

Without his yardage against the Raiders backup corners, it's not even close that.

never mind the fact that we actually throw the ball to our wr's now....

i guess some fans will never be happy. if every player in the starting 22 isnt a pro bowler, there must be some short coming.
Totally agree Tony...I'm looking at it from the point of view that has been spread all around the boards on how great they are as as unit. I just don't see " great " I see good. That is fine, just not worth cap bending contract numbers.
