Things needed before a running back.

1. At least two new offensive lineman.

2. A true shut down corner.

3. A possible replacement/protege for Ward.

4. A DT or DT/DE combo.

Lane had a major league meltdown in the Alamo Bowl. He threw a total fit when he wasn't in the game on a short yardage situation late. Threw his helmet and went to bench and cried.

More like Krispy Kreme Rage. Lane is a fat son of a bitch who doesn't have the wind to play in the NFL right now. He'd be a side show until a S&C coach got ahold of him for about six months.

I've seen Lane and I agree he looks more like a guard than a fullback.

Bettis has said it time and time again that he needs to be more patient and keep his head up while he is running inside.
I agree that we need a change of pace back. However, this isn't the year to pick him up, unless he falls to us WAY late... Rounds 4-6.

Under the premise above... I agree... we need both, and would love to have a bigger back, to back up Willie.

yes lane might be a good short yardage person but after one play he is tired and goes to the bench and eats a twinke... if he wants to play in the nfl he better A: get some stamina and be able to play longer than 1 play or B: lose about 40-50 pounds....
