    I think it his look at all these teams

    Colts SD Saints Pittsburg Ravens are all now passing teams they do pretty well

    we are a pasSing team IMO i can live with Slaton/Foster/Moats

    so im on the boat on lets not get a RB in round 2 and instead finally fine a Stud RT Center Guard or DT

    3 of those teams have won SB's because of good running games. I'm not judging, I'm just saying.

    Whaaa

    Colts do nothing but win has won a Super Bowl on there passing attack

    SD goes to the PLayofss almost every year and been to a AFCCG with there giant WR and the passing attack

    Pittsburg won 2!!!! SB with there new Passing attack and with big ben scrambling and making playswith his arm

    Ravens are turing into a passing team Werent they in a AFCCG like a year ago

    Im just saying COlts seem to do fine with a older RB THe chargers got by with a older RB these past few years

    Saints had a good running game this past season. Colts had one when they won the SB a few years ago and so did the Steelers. The Steelers almost always have a good ground game.

    The Chargers also had a certain RB named Ladainian Tomlinson on the team, along with Mike Turner and Sproles. The running game figured very prominently in these teams successes. The Saints and the Colts didn't win the BIG GAME until they actually got a running game to take the heat off the QB.

    I don't know guy yall are to fantic about a rb when we got like 4 rbs on our roster already yes none of them are good but are capeable to go if we play more passing plays this year

    I want a linemen in the 2nd round and I might be the only one happy if that happens today

    I think this draft is too deep at other positions and we have bigger holes to fill. OL, especially inside OL are usually there every draft. Not too many 1st round G's and C's.

    You answered your own question.

    To rely on a guy just out of neck fusion, two UDFA's and Ryan Moats pretty much means another season of a crap running game. Do I hope Slaton bounces back to 100 percent? Definitely. Do I want to RELY on it? No way.

    Toby Gerhart would be an automatic upgrade to our team.
