I notice we now have four above average running backs, and we will probably use three of them every game. We all know how the Saints use four running backs and usually have a successful running attack.

the last game of the season Ron Rivera was talking about how he wanted a Scat back like Sproles. We just signed Tolbert who can run, block, catch, and play special teams. I know he isn't a super fast player but would he be considered a Scat back?

Anyhow is it just me or are we trying to be more like the saints?

And also I believe that we have really improved our special teams this off season which was our weakness last season. I believe we would have been a playoff team if we had decent production on our special teams. If our core of young guys can improve and grow into their potential and the guys on the IR return back to 100% our team should be a playoff contender this upcoming season. I can't wait to see what we do in the draft next month.

Wayne is in a receiver friendly WCO and is averaging 12 yards a catch over the past 3 years. And he had Peyton Manning throwing to him 2 of the 3. Meanwhile Smith has averaged 15 yards a carry in a vertical passing offense with two rookies and a backup quarterback throwing to him. Wayne can be replaced easier than Smith who is still a game changer.

You get what the market bears. Who will pay big bucks for Wayne? Who will pay big bucks for Steve Smith?? Do you think they are the same??

and when both Wayne and Smith had bums throwing to them as their teams earned the #1 overall....Wayne was twice as productive.

I think Carolina could pay big bucks to Smith who will be 33 this season. Carolina has a habit of throwing cash around to players that have been in a Panther uniform.

Do I think a lot of teams are going to give a 33 yr old problem child WR a big contract......hell no. All it takes is one idiot so ou never no. But most teams don't pay big bucks to aging players.

I am not really happy or pissed about this move. If we retain Stewart I'm neutral about it as Tolbert is a ST ace and gives a new wrinkle on O with him at FB but I still think Stewart gets traded and then it would be an excellent pickup. Cap space is limited so this move only makes sense if he does.
