I’d point out his stats (4.2 YPC) were comparable to the Colts ’ Joseph Addai (4.1) and the Cowboys ’ Marion Barber (4.3), or that he’s a full half-yard better than Reggie Bush (and now tied in the “Most Heisman Trophies Owned
third-place game or consolation championship). Remember, don’t be afraid to bench a “star” with a bad matchup ( Marion Barber , if he plays) for a lesser player with a great matchup (DeShaun Foster). And that is one to grow on. Kirk Minihane
keeper for the next seven years or so. I think he’s a 2008 version of Eric Dickerson (minus the goggles). 2. Marion Barber III (RB, Cowboys) I was kind of surprised he finished this high, to be honest. But he’s the lead guy in a top-five
Smith, TJ Houshmandzadeh, Terrence Newman, Ken Hamlin, Karlos Dansby. I leave running backs like Steven Jackson, Marion Barber and Brandon Jacobs off the list because I'd hate to see the Pats spend big dollars at that

Patriots Wide Receiver Julian Edelman joins Merloni, Fauria, and Benz after Patriots training camp.
Given the recent Ray Rice suspension, many people are comparing it to Josh Gordon getting suspended for repeated drug abuse. Tim Benz doesn't think this is a fair comparison. He explains why.

Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
