This is why we won't run the ball effectively. We need a lead back to get at least 15 carries a game. Robinson should be the guy IMO. Sproles should go though, he no longer brings that burst to the table and his return ability is non-existent. I like Thomas but he was ineffective all year and our running game looked better when he wasn't in the game. Ingram and Robinson should be the future.

Re: Ingram,Robinson or Thomas

Each of our "starters" were sidelined at various times this season and you guys feel it's wise to cut two of them??

Re: Ingram,Robinson or Thomas

I would like to see a Robinson/Ingram tandem(Robinson as primary back). Keep Thomas as rotation with Ingram and as depth. Thomas is getting older but no way do we get rid of him. He is still valuable to this team.

Re: Ingram,Robinson or Thomas

We do not run a LEAD BACK or FEATURE BACK. Anyone actually watch the games. The carried needed is BS.

You know what happens when you make 1 person a feature or lead? When he goes down the game plan has to change... No thank you.

PT can still be effective in the screen game and maybe 3-5 carries a game, and sorry Sproles, you had one good return this year.

Re: Ingram,Robinson or Thomas

With our cap issues (not problems), we'll probably continue to purge high priced players and replace with younger talent. I look for more Fosters, Robinsons, Galettes, Lelitos, Sweetings, Butlers, Reddicks, etc to make this team.

We may invest some more big money in the O-line to protect our franncchise, but I can see us pretty much ignoring all the high priced free-agents and concentrating on restructures and out out-right releases of som popular players.

Its all gonna depend on how difficult they will be to replace without much of a drop-off.

PT/Sproles (pre-2013) would be extremely difficult to replace without a huge drop-off.

The PT/Sproles we saw this year wouldn't be that difficult to replace with youger cheaper versions.

Khirys emergence has made one of those players a little more replaceable, i think sproles will be traded to be honest

Khiry and ingram for 2 straight weeks against phillys D and then seattles D (arguably the best in football) have worked together and moved the ball extremely well

We need a youth movement soon on offense, it worked out very well for our Defense.

Re: Ingram,Robinson or Thomas

Agree with that.
Alot of the high priced vets contract are at that stage when the pay is too high for performance and the dead money is or is close to woelrth making the cut.
