Gerald Riggs Jr. A Redskin?
 
Now his father was a very nice Redskin. Did you know he still holds the single game Redskin rushing record at 221 yards on 9/17/89. I read that but is that right? He scord two TD's in a Super Bowl in 92. Could Gerald Riggs Jr Be a Redskin? Could he fall in the draft down to the 5th round or is that wishful thinking? Is he someone we might take a look at?

It's very possible he could fall to the 5th. He'd certainly be worth the pick, although we may be better off spending it somewhere else.

The allegence to the offspring of NFL superstars doesn't really guarentee draft position. In 2004, Jarrett Payton went undrafted, and the Bears had a pretty substancial weakness at #3 runningback that year. Brock Forsey ended up starting a game.

If i remember correctly,we were playing the eagles when riggs set the record,but i'm pretty sure near the end of the game he fumbled and it was returned something like 80 yrds for a td that won the game for the eagles,thats how i remember it

well i was almost right,i looked it up in my redskin a to z book,2nd game of 89 season,were up 37-35 with about a minute to play,riggs breaks off a 58 yrd run deep into philly territory,then on 3rd down trying to run out the clock and set up a fg,raleigh mckenzies knee knocks the ball out of riggs hands,and al harris scooped up the ball,somehow got it to wes hopkins in a very contriversial play,who raced down the sideline before being tackled by ricky sanders at the 4,next play eagles td,game over

single post season game rushing record? cause the single game record is something like 295yards vs the browns by jamal lewis a couple years ago.

Also don't forget after riggs fumbled the 2 e-gals players(I don't remember names) handed the ball forward to get the TD but it wasn't called buy the ref.

Does anyone remember that game?

The only way we should consider him is if we are planning on trading Ladell Betts. As much as I would hate to see him go, he is a FA after next year and he is going to be gone anyway. Denver @ 22, Carolina @ 27, NY Jets @ 29, Indy @ 30, & Pittsburgh @ 32 are all looking foe a RB. If we packaged next years number 1 and Betts we might end up with a 1st rnd pick to go with our pick at 53. Then we could address both LB & CB in the 1st and 2nd.

Or if the Jets end up as the team we with the most interest we could wait until Rnd 2 @ 35 and only give up next years 2nd. I say again I would hate to see Betts go but I really feel we are going to lose him anyway next year. And between Rock, Lumsford, and Nemo we should be ok at the Back-up RB spot.

no one is going to give great value for an RB with a 1 year contract and some injury problems.

Re: Gerald Riggs Jr. A Redskin?
 
If he was available in 5 or 6, I'd take him in a heartbeat. Tennessee didn't have much going for it this year, but he was a true brightspot. Very tough runner, always gave 100% in the games I saw. Assuming that we won't be able to afford keeping Betts on as a backup forever, I would like to see Riggs-take-II in our backfield.

Re: Gerald Riggs Jr. A Redskin?
 
I don't think we need to pick a RB this year who would not even be a starter. We can pick one up next year if we lose Betts and remember we still have Rock who has done a great job when called on. I would like to see Rock get some more snapps this year. Didn't Timmy Smith get more yards in the SB or does that count?

Smith had 204 in the SB

G2 would be a very nice pickup. Being a Tennessee fan I thought he was going to have a monster season last year, but the entire team went in the tank. I really think someone is going to get a steal with that kid, I don't know his 40 time or how many reps he did on the benchpress, but I do know he can play. We could do a lot worse for a 3rd running back.

I'd take him, why not? Stephen Davis was a monster who came from the 5th round
