Default How about another Foster in the Burgh!!

Deshaun Foster was just released. He has everything that a back needs to be succesful in the NFL but he just can't seem to stay healthy for a whole season. It might be a good situational back for us. Colbert was talking today about possibly drafting a back in the first three rounds. We need another back to compliment Parker. Ideas.

Wow, DeAngello Williams time has finally come in Carolina. I wouldn't mind him but doubt it will happen. He has potentiol to be a great back but yeah... People just don't know what happened to the guy.

He's already on the roster. His name is Willie Parker, he's from Carolina too.

Thats actually a shot at Willie because he's been relatively injury free until just lately.

How about we wait to see what our backfield looks like with an actual NFL caliber o-line playing in front of them or we can just throw money around for the hell of it?

We want a big-name, tall, starting WR for some strange odd reason yet our QB doesn't have time to throw the ball. We want another HB for some strange odd reason yet our o-line get's man handled and struggles to open up holes.

IOW, he's not a NFL-caliber RB. Durability is one of the most important qualities, if not the most important, in a RB.

You and I must have the same thoughts. Every time I go to post a comment you have already said what I was going to post. Damn you.

I think with some tweaking in our Oline, I think that we will be ok. I do think though that we need to draft an OT or OG very early in this draft, and I really think it should be in that order at 1 and 2. I think that we can resign Max Starks and as bad as I hate to say it... maybe it is a good idea to try to keep Faneca around for atleast 2 more years. If he would be willing to take less money to stay here then I think we could keep him. But if he isnt willing to do that, then Good Rithens'.
