How many running backs does it take to finish the season?

And we did this last year with the corner backs getting banged up. We just had better success with our backups and the guys we brought in off the street. MM was the man last season.(I can't remember if he got a ring)
RUGBY I DID SEE A PHOTO OF MM GETTING A RING. now if it was the real one who knows i think its the real one though. man he stepped up for us. i heard somewhere that wynn stepped up for greenbay when grant i believed went down the first time forthem. this would be lovely. and like papz said how can't you not appreciate what jim brown did back in the day. but it was 12 game seasons back then. 18 games and you really need a stable.

Atlanta's Trurner and Snelling have played in all 16 games.

Maybe we need to DRAFT a power running back and not just pick them off the street.

I think PT is gone next season. The suspect injury that no one knows and holdout at the begining of season makes me believe he is done.

Not as worried about this week as I will be in Chicago or Phili. This week will give a chance to test the new guys legs a little.

No need to panic yet. We can just pick up a few guys from the parking lot at Home Depot to round out the remaining injured slots on our roster, on the way out to Qwest Field.

I'm willing to meet the team and suit up. Hell, I might be good for 3 yards and a cloud of dust for 2 or 3 plays. That's about all these other fragile sons of ******* have been doing...

The highlights on this kid Bell looked pretty good. He's a hard runner with a low center of gravity. We just might be alright.

Turner is built like a warthog. A dog sniffed up Snelling then pizzed on his ankles. Some guys are just built to take the punishment. Some guys can take it a some can't . Some guys don't know how to fall right and some funny things happen at the bottom of the pile. Its kind of crazy how hurt we've been this season at the running back position. But hey! we've got Reggie...and Sean Payton...and Drew Brees. We'll make it happen somehow even if we use a fork lift driver or a mail carrier. Beerman is already on the payroll.
