He's also doing better then the second coming of Jesus, LaMont Jordan.;)

Colston is having one hell of a year. If he keeps it up he's eaisly going to run away with the ROY award and if he plays like he has so far this year consistently for 10+ years he will be better then Wayne Chrebet.

Have you guys made your reservations to Canton yet?

dont make me kick your Jim Nance ass again,,

even you have to admit, the kid shows more than promise,,

I have seen 40 years of AFL/NFL ball and I know the real thing when I see it,,

barring injury this kid will be real good,, if he puts on 10-15 lbs and is able to keep most of his speed, he will be Emmit Smith part2

For the love of mercy, where do you guys come up with this stuff?

After just 7 games in the NFL, Leon Washington is now the 2nd coming of Emmitt Smith?:eek:

And BTW, Robert Edwards showed more than promise as well.;)

no, i see in him the moves, speed and strength that if more weight is put on he 'has it',,

of course barring injury,, what i luv about leon, and i did in college also, is his heigth,, short power/speed backs are rare and worth thier weight in gold,, as the Ol and DL keeps getting taller, these small guys are even more effective slippin thru unnoticed

Just to clarify SJ, after 7 games you think Leon Washington will have the same type of career that Emmitt Smith had?

Got it.;)

"if he puts on 10-15 lbs and is able to keep most of his speed, he will be Emmit Smith part 2"

How am I not reading that correctly.

Those are your exact words.;)

there are two IFs in there, plus a third, , barring injury,,

but yes, if he stays fast and puts on bulk he is a close of Emmitts style/speed/power ,, a freakin clone,,

Leon was Mr Football in the state of Florida,,, in case dumb asses do not know Florida has got a crapload of talent.

Emmitt Smith was not a burner, he was a shifty runner with very strong legs.

Leon is a faster back than ES and has the shifty moves ala

This kid could be as good or better than ES, time will tell, he just needs to bulk up a bit. Even with 10 pds added to frame he still is faster than ES

Good comparison SJ

i don't know if he's Emmitt, part 2........

But he does look like a keeper, with a nice career ahead of him, barring injury. He does need some 10 pounds though. 202 pounds is real lite for a RB.

Correct and yet another excellent suprise this season.

A lot of people felt Cotchery would be good if given a chance and he looks like he will be a big time #2 receiver or better and now Leon appears to be legit as well.

emmitt 5 9 216 pds

Leon 5 8 202 pds

Both were MR Football in state of Florida

Leon is faster 4.4 vs emitts 4.6

Both have real strong legs and both are good receivers

Again time will tell whether Leon will be in Smith class, one thing we do know is Emmit had an awesome OL, LEon does not....yet
