Default Slaton/Taylor/Walker & Green

do not scare many, but I want to see how they perform. I am ok with not signing anyone else for this position for now. I think we will see more passes to these guys in regular season and backs may have far more combined yards than ever. I also think we will see more reverses with Slaton and JJ to confuse defense. I really like the speed this year combined with our WR and predict offense will be very good.

It's like our team has a deceptive element of Speed...

When I think about our offense in general I don't think "fast"....

But when you break down the skill guys we are kind of fast, O.D has good speed for a TE, AJ, AD, Slaton, Jacoby...

Very accurate read on offense. I think he O line will be faster also and that can be a very good thing.

Slaton - Turf Toe, Knee problems at WVU, rookie
Taylor - Coming off major knee surgery, only played in a few regular season games
Brown - Injury riddled
Green - Worse than Brown

And we cut Walker, the only healthy guy of the bunch. Brilliant.

Our RBs should each be issued special custom equipment upon signing of their contracts.

As I said in the presser thread, we'll be looking to sign other teams left overs at this position after the 2nd or 3rd game. Sheesh.

Exactly. And Ahman is slated to start against the Steelers because Kubes may be worried about a first time starter going against their exotic blitz packages (Richard Smith). Don't worry too much though Thorn. After Ahman is carted off for X-rays in the 1st quarter, Rick Smith will be right back on the horn with Walker. Or Brown. Or who the hell knows
