Been hearing a lot of talk about Todd Gurley (GA) and Melvin Gordon (WI) but not sure if they fit the bill. Lynch still doesn't have a deal with the Seahawks ... what if the Failclowns are thinking they can't find what they're looking for in the draft and are considering taking a shot at the "real McCoy"? Kind of a scary thought ... .

I would hope they would not be able to get Lynch or anyone close to him. I love to watch a tough, physical guy like Lynch gash the he!! out of D's and taking over late in most games but to think of facing him in the same division up to possibly 3 times in a year, no thanks!! Our D would have to be in the top 10 every year and with what I've seen lately out of our D and the way we draft that might be to much of a task to ask for.

I'm afraid Father Time has caught up to Steven Jackson. Great hard-nose runner but the glory days have passed. Just sorry he wound up in Atlanta.

Ryan, Douglas, White thats 3. They have drafted better than us for a few years and might be pretty good this season. I am in no way a fan of Atlanta but I also look at teams that might get their act togather especially in our division. A few players will make a huge difference and with the way they drafted if they improve they will be tough. Quinn will make their D tough if nothing else.
