BenJarvis Green-Ellis is a pedestrian RB that never fumbles and gets the dob done, so it's not impossible.

Well he was a 1000 yard rusher in 2010, but dropped off in 2011 to 3.7 ypc. This was in NE though and they are most certainly a pass heavy attack.

Looks like the Bengals are giving him 4 million this year with 1.6 million available if he hits some incentives. That's not exactly what I'd call "dime-a-dozen". He does have solid ball protection skills though...

I see your point, but even if Tolbert was not on the roster, Hatter is right--$16 million-That is $1 million per game--for 20 carries? That means every time Stew or DWill run the ball, they are paid $50,000. That comes to $10,000 per yard gained during a good year.

Dang... Never thought of it like that.

Probably a good thing since we aren't paying them anywhere close to 16 million. The salary for Williams and Stewart this year is 6.7 million for the two of them. That is less than the franchise tag for one back which is 7.9 million. Their cap hit which includes the prorated signing bonuses is right at 12 million. Until we actually pay them 16 million we can hold off doing the math.

People on here (not you) think they can have everything. They fail to consider the fact that keeping 3 RBs at nearly $20 million takes away from other positions. You gotta spread the wealth.

To this day I wonder how they can overturn the field call with this.

It would have been remembered as one of the greatest plays in NFL history.

When it was overturned, it became nothing. It still makes me sick to this day.

Spiro Dedes said "from that angle you can clearly see that his left elbow made contact with the ground" and he was clearly full of sheet.

He was moving on and wanted to end the half so he could eat more free tailgate food. Damn you Spiro!

LOL sh*t, I'm confused. Regardless, I never thought of them getting paid like a few thousand per carry. Even at 6.7 million, that's still a few thousand per carry.
