My guess is Mickey has a list of available players they like at every position. His list likely includes some young players we've never heard of and some veterans we've totally forgot about.

Tennant may be forced to grow up quicker than originally planned.

I hope not......there is a reason he's still on the bench.

(2) Atlanta Falcons
(3) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Alaska

This has made national news. Bring back Ivory to counter punch it in the face. New starting center and a healthy Chris Ivory. I can't think of a better way to jump start the O line.

I agree Beast! Ivory runs for 84 yards..Ingram 47...P.T 64..Sproles 40..and 1 punt return for a TD...Drew has 279 passing but we win 41 to 20..and our O-line gets their ass in gear the rest of the season!..hey i can dream ...

Ok, time to snuff this out permanently.

We have 5 healthy backs on the squad. We line up using at most 2 of them 20% of the offensive snaps.

We have 7 healthyish linemen. We line up using 5 100% of the snaps. We've already had 2 of these linemen miss 4 games, which means no depth.

Stop it. We pick up a lineman. Period.

We'd be wise to bring in some O-line insurance instead of activating a RB that we don't need.
The voice of reason. Can Ivory play center?

We have a center....why not pound the ball behind him..and Xan where did we get 5 RBs?..why let the most explosive runner ride the pine?..ok i guess were content with 80 yards a game from our run game..Im sure we are looking at O-Line men...we better be..but I think we could drop a useless FB for Ivory...come on..thats reason enough..
