That is true, I look at MJD and Adai last year as good examples and definitely Peterson this year. I just don't think they should rule out going after a FA RB if they think he's worth it.

This is just silly talk. If there was a strength and conditioning coach that could train players to avoid torn ligaments, broken legs, concussions, and so forth then he would be worth more than the head coach. Our injury problem is just poor luck and nothing else.

However, some players like Mr. Mittens have learned to avoid injury by rolling into the fetal position before the defensive player arrives at his location on the field.

My thought is that Texans will do exactly what you don't want sign one of 2nd tier FAs, Fargas, Julius Jones, etc. to pair with Ron Dayne.

I understand that but at the sametime it is one of the weak points of the team, if we only had a running game that was even considered versus having a running game that teams looked at and laughed.

If you do not want to spend the big contract on Turner then fine how about getting a FA runningback that is just a little lower on the money scale.

I am looking at a list that consist of ........

Name FA Type Ht Wt D.O.B. EXP Att Yards Avg

Michael Turner UFA 5' 10" 237 2/13/1982 4 Yr exp 60 274 4.60
Julius Jones RFA 5' 10" 211 8/14/1981 4 Yr exp 156 581 3.70
Derrick Ward UFA 5' 11" 228 8/30/1980 4 Yr exp 125 602 4.80
Marion Barber RFA 6' 0" 220 6/10/1983 3 Yr exp 198 981 5.00
Fred Taylor UFA 6' 1" 226 1/27/1976 10 Yr 223 1202 5.40
Jamal Lewis UFA 5' 11" 245 8/26/1979 8 Yr 272 1176 4.3
Justin Fargas UFA 6' 1" 220 1/25/1980 5 Yr 222 1009 4.50
Jesse Chatman UFA 5' 8" 223 9/22/1979 5 Yr 116 473 4.10

I thought Warrick Dunn was a UFA this year as well. He'd be a nice compliment to pair with Dayne's steamroller-style.

BUT I'd only be OK with that if we went after someone like Jonathan Stewart in the draft. How sick is it that New England may end up with McFadden? *shudder*

There would be $3.75 mil in dead money which would have to be accounted for. His total cap hit for next year would be $5.05 mil if he stays next year so there is a net cap savings from cutting him but $3.75 is money which can't be spent (again).

#1. Figure out why we always are at the top of the list with players on IR. It is hard to get comfortable with one another when guys are coming in and out at the rate they do, plus its expensive to sign 17 new guys to your team.

#2. Keep Demps and find someone to pair him with. CC Brown and Earl are backups to me.

#3. Dont cut Green. We need to get our money's worth out of him, and 1 year just aint enough. Cut Darius Walker, and run with Green/Dayne/Taylor and pick up a RB in the 3rd round like Chris Johnson.

#4. Draft a Left Tackle with our #1 pick. This is a good year for LT's in my opinion, and I think we could get Sam Baker. With Spencer coming back we can potentially let Salaam go.

#5. TJ stays. We need him, and I think he is getting the short end of the stick on this deal. Yeah he could make better choices, but IMO when you are in the heat of the moment, your judgement can be swayed. We wouldnt get anything for him like aways when we trade players, and he would probably turn all pro once we let him go...

#6. Protect Shaub. He is our best chance at superbowl, not Rosenfels. Figure out why he was getting smacked so much, and fix that crap.

#7. Put a hit on Haynesworthless.

That is all for now...

Default Re: Offseason priorities (besides the draft)

My main concerns are :

RB
O-Line
D-Line
Corner Backs
Safety
Line Backers

Thats all .............

I also hope we get a good Offensive Coordinator to replace Sherman . Kyle Shanahan may be a good option IMO . I was looking a recent issue of ESPN magazine , and they had a small bit in there about some of the young up and coming coaches in the NFL and he was mentioned along with Brian Schottenheimer and the OC with the Pats . I've also heard his name mentioned on the radio a few times on national broadcast .

There are other areas on this team that need some attention , but those are the ones I think they should look at first .

My issues with Stewart is that he most likely will go mid to lower first and I do not want to use a first on a runnning back, other areas of need to be addressed first.

Jesse Chatman UFA 5' 8" 223 9/22/1979 5 Yr 116 473 4.10

The only name on that list that I like even a little bit is Marion Barber, but it would take a colossal mistake on the Cowboys part to let him come to us in the off-season. All of the other guys on that list are way too old for my taste (Lewis, Taylor), are not much better than Ron Dayne (Chatman, Fargas, Ward, Jones) or are running behind a great offensive line (Turner). Turner is going to want too much money, Lewis too. I think Fargas could be a decent backup RB, but if he's the go to guy, I'd say forget it. I honestly think Fred Taylor would end up like Green over here, and I could never get myself excited about Chatman, Ward, or Jones to be perfectly honest.

This year, I'd say draft an RB because there's a pretty wide level of talent dropoff after Barber really.

Offseason priorities I think should be the offensive line and then the defensive backfield, with RB and OLB being neck and neck in terms of need and priority. I think if we improve our defense enough, and can get a solid running game that we will be a decent enough force to reckon with.

Jamal Lewis has finished the season strong. The strongest in a few years for him. I think he would be a good back for our running game.

Fargas has overachieved this season, and I do not see the Raider having the room to Keep him, also on a guess but I think the Raiders cut Lamont Jordan this off season.

Fred Taylor has looked good as 1 half of the Jags running game, and if they are willing to loose him, might be worth a look. Team him up with Dayne and Taylor.
