We need a featured back. Someone that can go hard for a long time and doesn't have to sit down constantly. I really can't stand the way we cycle our backs in and out. No one is ever going to get into a groove.

I say we cut Mendenhall, Redman, and Rainey and keep Dwyer as a backup for now. Look to draft a feature back in April, or sign someone off FA.

We need a Gore/Lynch/Rice-caliber player.
Why cut Rainey??? If anything, Redman and Dwyer are more than capable backups, too. No need to cut off your nose to spite your face.

Fine, get your feature back, but he can't be the only guy on the roster.
