Ahman Green is the best runningback we have ever had when he is on the field. He might be injured but he is far from "a joke."

What has Ahman Green done to establish himself as the best RB we've ever had on the field? In the 5 games he's started, he averaged 3.7 yards a carry with a longest run of 18 yards. He also only mustered 2 TDs in 5 games. You could take his receiving into account (123 yards on 14 catches), but even then he pales in comparison to Dominick Davis and is only marginally better than Darius Walker (who over 2 games started has the same YPC as Green). Ahman Green is far from the best we've ever had and could be arguably one of the biggest front office flops in team history. He can't stay on the field, and when he's on it he doesn't live up to expectations.

I was actually surprised when I found out that we had released Joe. Hope he catches on somewhere next year.

I saw much, much more from Gado this year than from Echemandu.

Let us hope, during the off season, that a decent running back comes our way.

He played well in the win over the Browns in the last game of '06. You remember, when the Texans lost the chance to draft Adrian Peterson.

Chris Taylor wasn't that bad. We should stll draft a young RB regardless, but I think Chris Taylor could be our change of pace back. Maybe a Marion Barber.

You can't bring up his previous injury history and not bring up his previous yardage. You can pretty much combine the history of our running backs and Ahman would be better across the board. When the guy was on the field he would be pulled late in games (as per game plan).

I'm not an avid Ahman supporter/basher but the jury is still out - inconclusive.

One of the reasons that there was hesitation to move Taylor into the "big league" last season was that he hadn't learned the term "blocking."

Even if healthy and even if he returns to prior form, AG is still going to be on the north side of 31 when the season starts next year. I was in favor of him coming here am not ready to completely write him off but even when we signed him I only thought of him as a stop gap RB. We need a young stud RB to take over for him even if he does come back strong. My dream draft scenario would have us trading down a 5 to 10 spots and picking up a
2nd round pick. With the 1st round pick choose either a O-Lineman or RB, whichever is rated higher and then use the 2nd on the position that we didn't choose in the 1st. I'm not sold on any of the FA RBs but there are some O-Line men we could pick up in FA. We have the money to make a few real strong FA signings.

Good luck to Eche.
