EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- A few hours before kickoff, Jets running back Curtis Martin went onto the field at the Meadowlands to practice running on the snow.
I don't think so. Last season he had a good run, but it's obvious why he's been second-string. He doesn't have the durability or consistency to put up big numbers year after year. It's time for the Steelers to either take a QB with its likely high draft pick or find a QB who's going to lead the team. This was supposed to be a big season for the Steelers -- they have a tremendous receiving corps and the feeling was that Maddox would do a fine job leading the offense. But it hasn't turned out that way as the defensive backfield had trouble and Maddox seemed gun-shy.
Question on the Jets: Is Martin still the lead back next year or is it time to get younger?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
