Like Danno said, it was Harper that actually showed he had another gear to switch to, not Robinson.
To be fair, Jamaal Charles has 4.3 speed. He may be the fastest RB in the NFL.

He is not just fast.. he is quick, he can cut, and he is strong... Wasn't he supposed to be the numero uno last year until he got hurt?

In 2009 He also became the only running back in NFL history to rush average 6.1 yards per carry, run 1000 yards and catch 40 balls.

He is a beast.

I'm just glad I'm not the only one who saw it.

Re: The 91 yard run

In the pic posted by beastmode, you can see Herring letting that "block" get in his way instead of getting around possibly filling the hole. What is the deal with our LBs? I thought Lofton had an OK game, but the rest...blah.

Re: The 91 yard run

That wasn't just a "hold". That was an all out bear hug. Sorry...that was WAY too obvious.

If its the blatent hold that allows a 4.3 RB around the corner? Yes.

Why do you think holding is a penalty?

So one player gets held and thats the excuse, what about the other guys that were in position to make the tackle and didn't.
Justify it anyway it makes you feel better but it was just a poor defensive effort.

And the hold was the reason it went 91 yards instead of 3 or 4.
It doesn't make me feel any better at all, we lost.

Why would you think it makes me feel better? Have you ever felt me?
