we really just need someone that takes pride in their work, is a professional, and is focused on every aspect of being a complete RB. Also, it wouldn't hurt to have a little

I'd say if we don't need to break the bank for blount, sure, sign him. Fumbles can be fixed. I like his style of running though I have to admit, he runs freakin hard. kinda reminds me of gary brown for the oilers way back

edit - I wouldn't mind giving Reggie Bush a shot assuming he doesn't ask for top dollar.

I completely disagree, he's being wasted in Carolina.

He has potential, but he has 120 carries for 415 yards. That equals out to roughly 3 YPC which isn't a big step up from Dwyer. His asking price is going to be that of a top flight running back and he just hasn't proven it since they have had Cam at the helm. I agree the playcalling has set back both DeAngelo and Cam, but franchise running backs make something-outta-nothing, and he hasn't shown he can do that. Just my opinion.

You're probably right. They should easily be able to nab him with one of their 11 first round picks.

I guess we could hold our noses and settle for a lesser talent like Steven Jackson or Brandon Jacobs.

I wave my private parts at your aunties, you heaving lot of second-hand electric donkey bottom biters.
