CJ Spiller

So according to Fantasy pros, a "source" says Spiller will miss the first 2 games. Not that this doesn't sound possible but it got me thinking. We need to stear clear of players. I can only remember recent times but we have got Jason David, Greer, Byrd and Spiller as of recently. The only one that was good was Greer.

Re: CJ Spiller

Man i hope not, i want to see Spiller on the field, he can be one of those difference makers that we need, just like Cooks.

Re: CJ Spiller

Considering we have yet to see him on the field even working off to the side, I would say there is no way he plays by week 1. We have so many injuries already it's ridiculous.

Re: CJ Spiller

At least we've got Marcus Murphy.

Do not at all be surprised if we look at Marcus Murphy as a cheaper version of the CJ Spiller signing.

Re: CJ Spiller

I am not as high on Murphy as everyone else seems to be, either my evaluation of talent sucks or the rest of the world's does . I am sticking with me for now....

The FO got a better player than they anticipated I believe. We knew he'd be good a returning kicks but he's waaay better than I gave him credit for.

He fits the satellite back role very nicely.

Re: CJ Spiller

Spiller was a ridiculous signing. There was absolutely no reason to throw that kind of money at him.

I don't know about that. At the time of the signing we were going to get a thunder and lightning 2.0 combination going again. I don't think that the FO knew how good Murphy would look in preseason. We also didn't plan to have Spillers knee become as worrisome as it's been.

Since TC started Murphy has allowed Spiller time to recover from his injury while he becomes familiar with this complex system. Spiller is a willing blocker and that can be tough on a smaller man. Also, we still have my man Robinson toting the rock and looking damn good doing it. I'm not worried about RB depth. We have enough depth to get value for a trade if needed.

Re: CJ Spiller

I think Murphy might fill his shoes just fine. At least for two games

We really should not have gotten rid of Sproles. That was stupid in my opinion.
