One-dimensional RB's like Blount do not have much value in a pass happy league.

Good running backs that can produce in the passing game are still valuable assets.

You hit it right in the mark!!!!

People can say this is a passing league, but last time I check, passing teams like GB just signed Cedric Benson, NYG used a first rd pick on David Wilson, and the Chargers have said they want Matthews to take a bigger load this season.

Lol holy poo THE PACKERS SIGNED CEDRIC BENSON TO VET MINIMUM THAT MUST MEAN THEY'RE REALLY MAKING A COMMITMENT TO RUN THE BALL.

The Giants picked David Wilson because, well they really don't have very many holes and they let Jacobs walk, and the Chargers want Mathews to take a bigger load this season because Tolbert left and they need a little bit more durability out of the guy while they let Rivers chuck it for most of the plays and draft pass rushers in the first round.

Seriously how stupid does your justification sound in the context of what we're doing vs what they are doing? They're barely making any investment compared to us.

the cost of building a team, and keeping a team loaded with talent, is fluid constant.

Meaning, ya have to pay to keep your core players, while building through the draft.

Right now.it means we're paying our running backs. In a few more years, the.money will be else where. The money invested in our running backs isn't preventing the team from adding other veteran free agents, if that's what they wanted to do.

People need to realize this is just this current phase of the roster.

Or in our case "Overpaying for your own players so you cripple your chances of improving the team anywhere else".

I don't get the strategy that's not helping us win? Nailed it.

It's just funny the lengths people go to when they're rationalizing what this team does in the midst of having been so bad in recent memory.

like P55's commentary before "YOU REMEMBER WHEN WE SIGNED FREE AGENTS AS WE WERE MAKING CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES? WE DON'T DO THAT ANYMORE! DEAL WITH IT!"

when is playing defense without three major starters, two being play making linebackers, being the panthers strategy.

For an arrogant asshole, you sure miss the obvious.

Yea what a shocker we lost Davis for the third year in a row

and I'd consider Edwards anything but a "major starter" in 2011 since he didn't start any games for us lol
