    Pretty good 40 time of 4.46, but a pedestrian 20 yard shuttle compared to others, 4.35. Laird, 4.14 shuttle, Nall, 4.16 hand timed. CMAC, 4.22 laser timed. Maybe that's part of his problem. Straight away speed only. An inability and stop change direction, vision, brains, etc.
    Yes, measurables mean nothing especially at RB. There's more than one way to average 1.9 yards a carry. LOL. Nall would trip and fall for 3 yards every time he touched the ball much less if he got just a small seam to bust through as we've seen him do for big yardage in pre season. I'll be watching tonight hopefully to see him maul some LB's and DB's.

    The Cowboy beat a bad Lions team with their back up QB by 8. Hoping the Eagles go on a run in the 2nd half of the season to win the East.

    Ballage is 6' 2" and 231 pounds, which makes his 4.46 very impressive. That's close to Travis Jervey measurables for size and speed, but that and all of Ballage's other measurables are meaningless because he's a terrible running back.

    As a Dolphins fan, we've had some real stinkers at RB in our teams history (Sammie Smiff, Cecil "doesn't run on diesel" Collins, Daniel Thomas, Lamar Gordon, etc..) but this Ballage dude may top them all in terms of ineptitude. He stunk at the college level as well, but had great measurables and that mouth watering "upside" which is what propelled him into being a 4th round pick. Meanwhile, a guy like Patrick Laird goes undrafted as has already proven to be more useful in the few games he has played.

    It's like they just can't bring themselves to start a white man no matter what.

    CMac 191 yards from scrimmage today.
    Dalvin Cook, his chief competitor in that arena had 61 today.

    I really hoping to see Wrecking Ball Ryan Nall tonight. Please shock us Coach Nagy. Show us you have even a little common sense. At least that is if you want to help save your
    job. Coach Nagy doesn't like Nall but for one reason. Regardless if this clueless coach wants to keep getting a paycheck he will play the kid. Nall is a beast that needs to be unleashed!

    Just like in Miami, Laird may have better credentials than Ballage....Nall has over Montgomery......The other is automatically better....Let’s see what happens next week with the Dolphins.....and tonight with the Bears......

    Laird only had that 1 carry but he had 6 catches for 51 yards.

    Scotty Miller had his breakout game with 4 catches for 71 yards.

    Here's to McCaffrey, Laird, Burkhead, and Nall (hopefully) all getting carries on the same day.

    I love it, Maxx Crosby had been close to a break-out game for a while now. He showed what's he made of today. Credit to Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden for playing Crosby (and Hunter Renfrow) as rookies, deservedly so.

    Just saw Algolohor's drop - amazing he still has a job in the NFL.

    Montgomery active for the Bears - the Rodent couldn't help himself. Hopefully Nall gets some carries/touches.

    Also great comeback by Cousins today.

    The rodent goes to Cohen right out of the gate for 2 runs up the middle. That little midget with the billion dollar name doesnt even have 100 yards total on the year. Montgomery looks fine to make matters worse.

    Stop the presses I saw #35 blocking on an obvious pass play.

    I counted 10.5 palefaces starting for the Rams (Taylor Rapp is half white/half Asian), that’s one of the highest numbers I can recall since I’ve become cast aware. The Pats and maybe Manning-era Colts may have come close to that number, but that was usually due to their offenses, the Ds were still mostly coal black.

    These Rams are more balanced and clearly the team to root for. Goff needs to step up his game after last week’s stinker at Pitt (not all his fault).

    Kupp with a big reception...either a TD, out of bounds at the 1 yard line, or fumble through the end zone...

    Ryan Nall, WSTD. He’s a big, impressive athlete, but they won’t dare let him run the ball.

    If you need struggling black RBs to produce, just put a white RB behind them on the depth chart, works most of the time. The Bears awful running game all of a sudden has some life.

    At least Nall is earning some game checks instead of PS money, hopefully it continues because getting carries seems like a pipe dream, so at least get some $$.

    When a top receiver has an off game the QB is careful to forcefeed the ball to him the next game. But not Cooper Kupp. After having zero catches last week he has just one tonight, even though it was a 50 yarder that just missed being a TD. Kupp is uncoverable but even the Rams, who are one of the top relatively white friendly teams, won't treat Kupp as the obvious superstar he is.

    The Rams are playing into the Bears hands with their cork up their ass offensive game plan. I know they are missing a couple of starting wide receivers but really this is ultra vanilla coaching from someone who is known to be creative. This molasses approach is very unbecoming of the Rams. Kind of like the Vikings offense at the beginning of the year. Dead in the water.

    The Chiefs stay up all night programming plays for Tyreek Hill. The Rams apparently don't put that kind of work into drawing up plays for their star Cooper Kupp.
