    Russel and Davis looked good

    Najeh got some good work in during the first few series but the story of the night has been Russel and Carey as far as the backup RB's go. Both of them ran hard, tough, held onto the ball and refused to go down by the first defender. They showed alot tonight as a couple of young guys trying to make the squad. I like what I saw from both of them.

    Barlow needs to go, he was whining after the first play when he was taken out of the game. Kuhn didn't play much but he'll get his chances.

    kuhn won't get his chance, he's being used as a full back, so he won't get a chance at all cause there was plenty of time for him to have his chance, croom ran more then him, and that's cause kuhn sucks

    russell produced everytime he ran, maybe not huge gains but every run ended with positive gains

    davis seems badass, i can't wait till we play the eagles on nbc so i can watch them

    barlow ****ing sucks ***, he needs to be cut before saturdays game cause he's stilling valuable playing time from our young backs

    They both looked good, but Davis obviously impressed us all a lot.

    Yea I was pumped to see both Russell and Davis....Both didn't let me down at all....I thought Davis stood out more then Russell tonight since he had a long run and long reception...But Russell looked tough and refused to go down on the first hit....Plus seems like a solid cut back runner....

    Davis was definitely running out of gas on that long run but he was gutting it out He's not the most fleet of foot guy in the world but he runs with power.

    Call me crazy but I think Russell and Davis should make this team.....Just cut Barlow and Haynes right now.......

    I think the Backs should be Parker,Dookie,Russell,Davis and Kreider....I don't see the Steelers keeping more then five......

    Davis ran through daylight more than Russell.

    IMO, Russell out-performed Davis.

    Davis' long run of 56 was very bad tackling then into wide open field.

    Take that away and the rest of his performance was 6 for 12 yds and a 2ypc average.

    Russell was banging it through and had 8 for 41 for 5 ypc!!!!

    Russell wins this matchup.

    Nice problem to have.

    But does anyone remember Daunte Brown?

    On the pittsburgh sports show Paul Alexander compared Davis with Foster and how they run close to the same.

    I loved watching these young backs run tonight.
