    Thumbs up The scoop on Kevan Barlow........

    Barlow is a class act. A total character player.

    As far as football goes if you area true fan who actually watches every team play you know what Barlow brings to the table.

    As a running back fan I can tell you that Barlow is one of the hardest runners in the NFL. He had absolutely no offensive line the past 2 seasons. With even a decent OL, Barlow is a beast. This is not coming from a Jet fan who does cartwheels over every single player the team signs or trades like 99% of the people on this board do.

    I was sure he was a class act just like every other player here. He played well with a terrific offense around him.

    I repeat again:

    Jeff Garcia in his pro bowl days
    TO in his prime
    A solid O-Line

    In 2002, Football Outsiders (who are a very smart group of guys) ranked the 49er run blocking 8th in the league

    In 2003, 5th in the league

    That is the proof I could find as none of you would belive me when I said the 49er offense before 2004 was potent.

    Thank you! I said that on the other Barlow threads, but those who dont look past the player themself dont seem to understand that.

    Just the other day on Sirius they said this guy was a problem child. It's interesting to read other info

    Thanks

    Why is their rumor in San Fran that Gore was going to replace him? I mean if he is such a great runner and all. I say he is mediocre at best. I am not upset with the trade. I pretty much like whatever about it. I dont think this move significantly improves our running game. But, it gives us some much needed depth at the position. Hopefully, I am wrong and he contributes a ton. Just dont see it happening.

    Over 4 yards per carry (career) works for me.

    Barlow seemed to be upset earlier in the week about the trade rumors. I'll be very interested to see what his reaction is for being traded to the Jets.

    hey sack dance

    i find your religious depiction offensive and completely out of place.

    to assume the one religion is any more true then another and then to post it along with any jet comments every time is out of scope. go to church and talk to you your other brainwashed comrades about how islam is false just leave it out of here, mel gibson.

    this is a jets board not a kkk site.

    why must you try and recruit and push your beliefs on others.

    How would you feel if i put a degrading jesus cartoon like yours up?

    I don't see why he'd be mad about getting traded.

    He gets a fresh start here and a very good chance at winning the starting job. Frank Gore was gonna be the starter this year for San Fran anyway.

    Gore has tons of talent. This is the same dude who scared Clinton Portis into leaving Miami a year early and took the starting job away from McGahee. He was a steal for the 49ers at the Top of round 3 a year ago.

    Religion is the number one cause of war, famine, and suffering in the world.

    He is pissed because he isnt a #1 back. He wasnt there and he wont be here.

    Just found an autographed Kevan Barlow helmet on eBay! I think we can pool our money together and buy it for under $10. Who's with me?

    You don't have to look at all the half naked girls people post. As you said this is a Jets board and your comment had nothing to do with the topic.

    Personally, I think the Jets made a mistake picking up Barlow
