    Hes got a nice burst it seemed at the least.

    As someone said above I think, if they can get him outside or open some holes instead of just sending him into a pile he might be able to use that burst and show us what he can really do.

    Then again maybe his vision sucks and he just kept running into the pile on his own, but i dont think so.

    This situation makes the FO look pretty smart for picking up an extra back. Lets hope that he plays well and we are able to ride our run game into the playoffs.

    I'll definitely be interested to see what he can do this Sunday. Especially considering that our other 3 backs are injured or nursing injuries.

    I've never been overly impressed with this guy but hopefully fresh legs pay dividends in December.

    Bilal is going to be a beast for us tomorrow. I hope he has 3 TDs and 100+yds rushing.

    I wonder what specific role he will be playing. I don't think they would trust him on 3rd down so I guess he'll go in for Greene on first downs. I wonder if he can pass block at all.

    We better hope for going in on 1st down lol. I think he provide rest in "series" and not a substitute role. To keep continunity with the offense

    This begs the question... do you watch NCAA football? There is a erason why he was drafted, lets see if he can live up to it. He runs hard and has the ability to break a big gain with his speed. If our O-line makes holes for him he'll make a play. He did not look good in denver, but no one ran well that day.

    I'm on board with the not impressed group. Greene is the much tougher runner and has the same speed in the first 10-20 yards based on their 40's. Powell's speed being below average by NFL standards and his lateral quickness looking like nothing of note has me saying what's the point? Give McKnight more carries because this guy might not be on the team next year.

    Who could be possibly be impressed with a handful of carries?

    McKnight would get more carries... If he wasn't hurt.

    If Bilal loses some weight and can learn to hang on to the ball, he can become a pro bowl back.

    First off he's not very heavy. Second what exactly has he shown you that he could possibly be a probowl rb?
