Back in '06 Addai was actually good. And our running game is going NOWHERE if we keep this roster. The OLine currently will be worse than last year (Colon was the ONLY reason we had anything resembling a running game at any point this season) and Dwyer/Redman aren't going to get any better, they might have a good game or two but in the end we'll be sitting here next offseason having the same arguments. Only chance is to draft somebody, be it a stud guard (Warmack) to open up running lanes better or a new RB altogether..
