I bet they will convert mauel white, jr. to tailback ( he reminds me of stephen davis), and will be the next coming of john riggins!

Manuel White may end up being pretty good. I don't know how serious his injury was in preseason last year though. Anybody know if he has fully recovered or not?

Re: We need RB depth!

2-3 more years for Portis? Please. The guy's barely old enough to rent a car. If the entire team had to ride on his shoulders like last year maybe , but with the passing game we've added to keep defenses honest, CP should have another big year with significantly fewer big hits.

Lets hope so. Don't forget Portis is gonna be on the cover for Madden 07. It scares the hell out of me.

Re: We need RB depth!

Anyone know what happened to John Simon?...he was a standout in the PreSeasons and was a solid contributor on special teams.

I've heard everyone from Steve Smith to Big Ben to Larry Johnson will be on the cover. Honestly, I'd be surprised if CP get the cover just because while he had a great year, so did many other big name guys. While I'd be happy for CP, I do agree w/ you that I'd also be kind of scared about the curse, as silly as it is.

Thanks for the relief. I hope someone else takes the Madden voodoo.

I checked NFL.COM and they don't have him listed. I don't think he plays for anybody anymore.

it is a rumor, he's a finalist, but there are tons of finalists besides him. They haven't picked yet.

Re: We need RB depth!

we seriously do need some more depth. Ladell is a good back, but lets be honest he isn't the best change of pace back to be behind clinton portis. What about going after the former skin Stephen Davis? He has been injured the past few seasons, but if he is used sparingly, he would be a great fit to throw in a guy that you can pound between the guards and will run down-hill...joe gibbs style. It would be a perfect compliment to Clinton Portis.

except he's completely done. he's slower now and a walking injury risk. betts is a much safer use of a roster spot and he's already here and under contract.
