Default For your considerations. Do we need a BIG back

We had trouble twice punching in it and had to settle for field goals.

Do we need a big back?

I would say we need a power back and we drafted one but he got hurt in his first start. I think we need to get some O-line personal in the draft and this will help more.

I keep yelling at tht eTV, WE CANT RUN, over and over, and they just dont listen, lol.

I like FWP. But if we don't get a oline that can create holes, we need to get a bettis-like back and move on. Im not so sure how durable jacobs is, but I like him. But I can't see us spending any big money on FA's.

I think yea, we do need a BIG back....when the Bus was still playing I NEVER doubted a goal line TD...and now I almost wish Ben will be throwing at the goal line because I've seen us get stuffed so many times this season
