    Does Curtis quit after the first 25 yards?

    I've felt for 3 years now that when Curtis breaks one he basically doesnt turn on the afterburners and give that last defender a move in order to take it to the endzone. Lamont would have scored on that 49 yd run.

    Yes, Curtis Martin quits because he doesn't want to score.

    He's a quitter.

    Also,

    The Jets season is OVER (even though they are only ONE game out of first place)

    Herm is the worst coach in the NFL (even though he has a winning record)

    This site is hysterical after a loss!

    Curtis just does not have those afterburners or that extra gear.

    The guy is 32 years old. Just what the hell do we expect? I was just happy to see him actually get into the secondary for a change. I have to give Curtis credit were due, but on both runs our OL opend up HUGE holes.

    It kind of reminded me of the old Dallas Cowboys when Emmitt Smith would run about 10-15 yards before you even saw a defensive player come into view! Of course Emmit would typically score on those runs...

    Well, there is one very distinct difference between Lamont and CMart, 6 years!

    If there is one thing that Curtis does not do, is quit
    this is a guy who played with 2 bad ankles, thru all kinds of pain...maybe he can only run so long on that knee he hurt, maybe it's still bothering him

    There is something to it. While not bashing curtis, he didn't make the open field moves today.

    Curtis has NEVER been a shifty back and he doesn't have a "second" gear, he's a one speeder baby. He has also been a 5 yards and down back (meaning, 5 yard run up the middle, hit, goes down, repeat previous step, etc.)
