Probably both, until FWP gets back.

Once again I'd like to stress: The last thing the Steelers need is a soft over the hill RB that dives down into the line of scrimmage and flops like a drunk into piles of bodies. Soft Alexander Sucks.

Reactivate Russell. He can't be any worse.

i would at least bring in alexander for a physical or a talk. maybe he is feels slighted and will play with renewed energy or he might just be washed up. its worht a little more investigation. but its a bad sign when he is still on the street.

Rudi Johnson...that's what I say...

Or, trade our 1st rounder of 09 and 2nd 0f 2010 to the Rams for Steven Jackson NOW.

Question Shaun Alexander?

As much as I hate him from when we whooped on him in the Super Bowl, think he's a possible fill in for the rest of this year? I'd almost rather have him than Najeh who I hear practiced with the team today?

It would be a bad move. Look at the rest of the league. The are alot of backs on alot of teams that one might think are not as good as Alexander. The bottom line is teams who are struggling with the run are steering clear of him.

He's a cap liability if he performs well and might incite some sort of RB controversy and everyone wants Willie with the ball when he is healthy (which wont be long).

We should run RB by committee for the next few weeks and pick up a mid skill speed back to offset Moore until Parker can shoulder most of the the load again. Not having a feature back might actually throw off a few defenses. Have Alexander would make the running game mundane and predicatable and only server to increase the abuse that ben is taking right now.

The reason why I said that I can see Davenport coming back is that he step in right away and he can handle kick off return duties.

No to has-been Shaun Alexander. Just another over-the-hill back who is past his prime.
