Default Marcel Shipp

I'm surprised no one has posted this yet. He will be signed tomorrow per McClain.

I'm sick and tired of the Ahman Green injury watch bs. Time to fish or cut bait.

Another NetFlix RB.

Didn't he have a fairly significant injury awhile back?

Hasn't averaged more than 3 yards a carry since 2003.

He's the best option they could find?

And why are we now talking about Green being out until the opener? It says in the linked article that he "could miss another two weeks". What's up with that? It was "nothing two weeks ago. No reason to get worried, we're just playing it safe with Ahman. If this was the regular season we'd push it a little harder. Now it's maybe another two weeks and we've got this guy being interviewed by Bob Allen in New Orleans on the sideline talking about how he doesn't know when he'll be back.

It's been a long time since I've felt this way about a player. I'm starting to feel "The Boselli Effect" around Ahman in a big way.

I don't think so...Edge happened. And as you can see, Edge isn't exactly lighting it up in ARI's running game. Perhaps Shipp isn't as bad as we think. I'm intrigued...and I would like to subscribe to Shipp's newsletter (with an out clause, of course).

Not suprising. Rick Smith said on-air last night that someone would be brought in within the next week to "solidify the position."

Spent the entire season in 2004 on injury reserve due to an ankle and leg injury.

Horrible stats, too.

Eeek.

Shipp has pretty much ideal size and was a up and coming back till he had some injury issues. I'm just glad we are still looking at backs since nobody has impressed me much other than Slaton (I hope he gets some first team touches next week).

That's true enough. The worst he can do is average 2-3 yards a carry and look like everybody else. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Still, we're picking up Cardinals cast offs. I feel all "dirty" reading this.

AZ drafted a good looking young RB by the name of Tim Hightower who helped make Shipp even more expendable than he already was.

Shipp wasn't a Whisenhunt back either

Another garbage RB picked up in free agency (see Bell and Brown).

Slaton will be a full time starter by the end of the year

I remember Shipp had an 80 yard td on I think a screen pass a couple years ago. That's the only time i've heard his name before this signing.

Default Re: Marcel Shipp

I'm not as down on Shipp as others seem to be. Of course, I've always had a soft spot for the hapless Cards, and I have no idea why. But to be fair to Shipp, the Cards have never had a good running game. I think their run blockoing has been problematic for YEARS.

I'm glad they're still looking for a RB.

I noticed Keith from Indy was running 4th team

He or L. Jordan would be better than anything we currently have after they get cut.

I don't think either of those guys are garbage pile pickups. L. Jordan would be a great pickup if available, but being realistic, he'll be Addai's backup. Keith was solid last year, so I don't see him getting released. Keith was Addai's backup last year, correct? Because correct if I'm not getting the right guy.
