Couldn't have used him huh? We had Ridley!
I mentioned him before and was shut down......look at him run. Would have been a nice #3 for us but he is washed up right
I thought it was J. Bettis
My son said what happened to him did he train with eddie Lacey?
I’m scratching my head at this though because his numbers weren’t stellar in Carolina. He got cut from 2 teams.
Almost same deal with Amari Cooper? Was terrible in Oakland.
Were these players phoning it in at their previous teams?
Can't sign everyone.
Dude looks like he is 260. He was horrible in Carolina. Does look good tonight though.
I don't remember that debate on here. Nice call.
The entire Dallas team looks exhausted.
Let’s see next week if he breaks the 50 mark.
Why wouldn't he? He's been on a tear. Last 2 games of the season he had 299 yards and 2 TD's.
You and me both. I wanted him over Ridley as a backup to Connor. Ridley sucks and has always sucked. He had 1 good year in NE, that's it. There's been 100 RB's that have had good runs in NE. It's a very RB friendly system. Ridley is terrible and should have been cut a long time ago. CJA is far from perfect, but he's much better than Ridley. I don't know why the hell this team has to be so conservative all the time. So frustrating
He was brought up by a few people when he became available and again after Conner got hurt. Sure, he looks fat, but the guy can clearly play. That wasn't the first big game he has had since signing with the Rams.
Tell me about it. He was out there to be had a couple times too.
Ridley needs to go
Yep you can't but when you have an opening and a vet is out there you can sign him.......
I will go back and try to find it.........
I posted about signing him, early in the season when he got cut by Denver I think it was.
Yep...I started that post too
Yeah I noticed that after I bumped it.
Not to brag, but I posted about CJ on here way back in September I think it was.
Nah nah nah nah.......nah nah
In September he was signed with the Panthers so we couldn't do anything with him. He was cut in November and that was when Disco started that thread and also Bell didn't come in making CJ a nice fit for us a insurance.
The Steelers believed their RB's were going to be Bell, Conner, and Samuels. No one could had predicted the Bell wasn't going to return.
I am sure the Steelers wished they would had drafted x y and z players if they had a crystal ball to see the future.
Yes but that was why CJ made sense then he was cut at the deadline for Bell to return and when Bell didn't we had an open spot and a need. The need being insurance as we seen when we lost JC for a few games and yes Samuels played great but we needed more after him too.
I guess the organization had their reasons for not signing him. There are always unknown factors.
At this point what is the point of saying we should had signed this guy or that guy?
