Default The Name Not Mentioned In The RB Situation

Stefan Logan!! Seriously remember the Steelers Brass towards the end end of the year saying they want to get him involved in the backfield the following year with lots of screens and etc. I think he would be productive if given the chance and why is nobody now not even bringing his name up when we talk about the rb depth ?

If Mendenhall goes down and hits the IR, Stefan Logan isnt exactly who most people want starting in his place. The Chargers have Sproles, but they know that it's rare that you find a 185lb. runningback that can be used as a feature back (Warrick Dunn is probably the only recent back that could pull it off). I think there's a reason why he's listed as a wide receiver.

I think most people such as myself are looking for a runningback that could possibly excel in the complete absence of Rashard Mendenhall.

I'm not saying Logan should be the starter but that he adds another dimension to the backfield. I would be fine with Mendy, Moore and Logan as our backs. Also if Mendy does got down I think Moore and Logan sharing the load would be fine.

Moore was fine two years ago.

However, at this point I would prefer to see Mendy, Logan and a rookie that could take carries away from Mendy.

I do NOT want Mendy as the featured back. I do NOT want the featured back system.

Im telling you guys, Moore's 2008 campaign was overrated. The minute Rashard goes down and someone else has to step in, the running game will be mediocre again

I agree. I always pictured Logan as a Darren Sproles-type back. He seems very quick and slippery. I wouldn't mind seeing what he can do on a couple of screen plays.

Or we could you know, actually run the ball. When you evaluate an RB, smaller things like efficiency with bubble screens are a bonus. They need to be able to run the ball. And in today's league, your #2 RB needs to be legit.

If Mendenhall is healthy all year, I'd love Logan as a role player in the backfield. He brings a totally different kind of weapon to the table. But in case of injury, I wouldn't want Logan playing every down, no way. Too many limitations, or at least question marks. You want a pretty well-rounded guy to be the backup in case of injury.

AMEN!

You have to have 2 good backs now. MeMO is a 3rd down receiving back not a #2
