    Depends on who your talking about. Just good but not great guys? Yeah. But I wouldnt take a committee over Zeke, a healthy Todd Gurley, saquon, etc..

    Check out the recent super bowl teams and see what they do. And the team who actually had a true #1 back lost, in part, because that dude was hurt. They just wear out so fast. I'd rather have 3-4 guys I can rely on to do various things.

    If we get Houston, I’m good though.

    The Stains were pretty hyped-up last preseason too. I see them lucky to finish 8-8.

    Highly dependent on your age. Probably why he got the screw this time.

    Gurley was wore out before he even got to the NFL. He tore his ACL in college,tore it in the nfl,and now has arthritis in his knee. He is likely done at this point.

    And that is why the Steelers don't give that kind of guaranteed money.:cool:

    A lot of trade and signing movement:

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/...acker-latest-signings-trades-cuts-news-rumors

    Since you all wanted Mosely he just cashed in big time with the Jets:

    Ex-Raven Mosley to get $85M from Jets
    Linebacker C.J. Mosley is expected to sign a five-year, $85 million deal with the New York Jets that has $51 million guaranteed, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mosley, 26, was the leading tackler for the NFL's top-ranked defense and was the Baltimore Ravens' most high-profile free agent this offseason.

    Never said they were wrong for not doing it. They are not because if the players sign those deals they know what it entails.

    The jets should be tired of getting housed by the patsies every year. Someone in the east needs to do something to compete with those cheaters. Hell, even patsies fans are bored with their team.

    I'd love to be suffering from some of that boredom. When the Yankees were winning 4 in 5 years the last thing I was , was bored.

    Even if we have Elliot, Gurley and Saquon on the roster our coaches would run the wheels off one before turning to the others

    In other news, I did see we freed up $2.83 Mil today with the restructure of Vince Williams..
    Hopefully take that money, get Ben's extension done and release the details finalizing Justin Houston??

    Clay Matthews signed with the rams so there goes that potential edge rusher. Amazing that the cash strapped rams have money to make signings.

    If Barron leads to getting rid or Burnett then I am fine with their garbage screw Burnett and him not wanting to be here. Also like I have said before I think this signing is more about Barron being brought in to help Edmunds alond since Burnett wanted nothing to do with the hybrid position. jmo

    Clay isn't worth 8 million a year, the Rams can have him.

    You would think that Miami, Buffalo, and the Jets would hire a spy to infiltrate the Patriots, and if he get's caught he can say he was actually spying for the Patriots and had been for years.

    I was watching their breakdown of him on NFL network. He could no longer beat 1 on 1 matchups consistently anymore.

    I was puzzled by them keeping Dupree on the fact that he hasnt at all came close to his 1st rd pick draft status, they have the same defensive staff in place minus Joey porter, and their were better options on the market. I dont get it but this season will reveal a lot about the future.
