Staley signs with Pitt, Garner with Tampa

remember all the talk of if we wanted Staley or Antowain Smith, or some other 2nd teir RB....what a relief knowing the horse we have in our stable will run circles around all them put together,,,,,

yeah, I'd say we picked up the best back this offseason. Although Dallas and NE will most likely pickup two great backs in Jones and Jackson

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that dallas doesn't get jones cuz I'd like to be able to root for the guy and not wind up hating him, lol.

I'm so grateful we landed Portis in his prime and not some retread.

Right on ghost.
I hope Jones and Clarett go to non-NFC East teams! I want them both to do well. Don't turn this into I HATE CLARETT thread. Go post on one of the other multiple ones.

Yeah, I'm dreading the idea of Jones becoming a Cowboy, too. Not just because I want to root for him and not hate him-- but because I know he's the goods, and it'll really suck for the Skins to have to play against him twice a year. With the problems the Skins have had defending against Cowboys runningbacks in recent years (read: "always"), Jones could do some real damage. Here's hoping Jones goes elsewhere, and/or Gregg Williams gets this defense turned around in a jiffy!

With the upgrades to our defense (in particular the LB's), and most importantly a qualified coaching staff, out defense will be greatly improved.

I'm not sure that Staley to Pittsburgh is that big a deal, but Tampa signing Charlie Garner could be a very big deal.

sure they r, their just named the browns, cardinals, and san diego now. plus he had some of his best games against good teams like pittsburgh, texas a&m I believe, miami 2 years ago I think, and west virginia. in fact if memory serves me right he had around 240 yards against pitt this year with 2 or 3 50 yard plus runs. this guy is gonna be a great pro back barring injury and I hope its not as the feature back of a divisional team or any other teams I loathe.

right on skins fan. People don't give Jones the respect he deserves.
|skinsfanthru&thru ||03-11-2004 12:40 AM |
if u'd have watched his games the past couple years, you would know that on atleast 80% of the plays, the opposing defense had 8 or 9 guys in the box to stop him and I don't care what team your playing whether it be ohio state or duke, running for a career average of 5.7 yards per carry is pretty damn good. last season he ran for 21 touchdowns and thats with missing the majority of a game after he got slammed 10 yards out of bounds into the wall. This guy is a monster waiting to be unleashed on the NFL and I just hope we don't have to play against him twice a year. hopefull he ends up in the afc somewhere.
