Default We need to trade Mendy for Hillis

This guy would provide some much needed "thunder" to our offense. He is a down hill runner and does not run upright like Dumptruck. He also has great hands and can catch the ball from any area of the field. I see flashes of Bettis in this guy, minus the weight problem. Discuss.....

You know what? Screw it. We need to just call Bettis up and tell him we're signing him for 3 plays a game. He doesn't need to come to practice, he doesn't even need to work out. Just take the f***ing ball and run over a couple people when we absolutely need it, then hang out on the sideline and drink beer the rest of the game. I'm pretty sure he could play until he was 45 if this was how we used him. Because all this other sh*t is just getting ridiculous.

Is it bad that I wouldn't be completely opposed to this until it was proven to be a horrible idea? lol

Don't you think it's just a little bit early to give up on Mendy?

The guy got what, like 10 carries this year?

Not at all. After all, Timmons was declared a bust about this same time last year. Didn't you know that unless rookies taken in the 1st or 2nd contribute at an all-pro level from the start, they are busts? Get with the program!

Since they moved him to fullback this year and he had something like 100 yards, people are projecting him to fall to the late rounds or out of the draft entirely. I'd take that dude for a 5th-round pick if we could get him.

I did have a nice LOL at this on his Wikipedia page:

Outside of football

Jorvorskie lives with his girlfriend and his daughters Javia amd Jai'Unna and son Jorvorskie Jr. He has garnered support from his coaches ever since.


So this guy is a senior in college and has three kids already? What is he trying to become, the father of our country?

Gosh!


Trade Hillis for Mendy? How about we see what he's got first.

What's wrong with that? Maybe his boyhood hero was Travis Henry.

I think it is a little to early to be talking about trading Mendy the guy needs a chance.
