That's a good point, SP is up to no good again, drafting a very promising middle linebacker, moving him to the outside to make room for an aging veteran.

Anthony is going to end up like Malcolm Jenkins, his career will take off as soon as he leaves us.

Re: Game Day: New Orleans Saints @ New York G'nats

Getting rid of Spiller was right. Having Cadet on the roster as anything but a backup was a mistake.

My opinion and thats all it is we need a everydown/everything back.

Ingram does a good job but he is never going to hit that homerun to spring a game wide open. And going back to the old 2011 type RB committee was exposed in the long term.

Teams knew

Ingram on the field = stack the box

Sproles on the field = passing

PT on the field = who knows

Look at the ladt year of Sproles and how often a LB woild be on him before he could break free. With the new era LB being lighter and faster it will not work if teams know whats coming.

We need a RB that can keep teams on edge and teams know if they blitz and miss him he is going 60+ yards.

I know they do not grow on trees but you can find them in the mid rounds of the draft

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

And what you fail to recognize is that people don't get upset over one mistake. There have been a tremendous amount of mistakes over the last few years. We've had three losing seasons out of the last four and we're 0-2 right now. That didn't happen by accident. I do like a lot of the young players on defense, many of whom are injured now. But this team has been put into this rebuild mode because of the numerous mistakes that were made.

When you are one of the handful of teams in the league who can say they have had an elite QB, you aren't supposed to be losing.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Literally an Adrian Peterson, Todd Gurley type running back.

We need to commit to the run first, those guys would waste away in our offense.

In order to do. That your going to have to fire Sean Payton and rebuild the line because it's a pass blocking line don't think it was ever designed to run the ball in the first place.Sean doesn't believe in running the ball period it don't matter who you have at running back.

If Cadet and Coleman can not suit up anymore games that'd be great....

It doesn't have to be somebody so high profile. Bell and Lacey were second round picks.
Obviously his injuries count him out but Andre Ellington could do both out the backfield. Pierre Thomas

If they can carry 170-200 times a year and add 30-50 receptions you can spot fill the rest

I sure wish we had another vet at WR in Brandon Coleman's spot. He is not a very good receiver in my opinion.

To me the only reason we run the ball is to give the Wrs a chance to catch their breath we really don't intend to gain much from it
