Portis/ Parker Combination?
 
Your thoughts on the potiental of us possibly picking up Willie Parker to pair with Clinton Portis in the backfield.

I see him as a great pickup becoming a change of pace back. He has the speed and smarts to hurt other teams. I would still hope we draft a third back if we brought him here.

It never hurts to bring in a guy that has speed , and he is < was ? > fast Willie Parker . I also would like to pick a rb in rd 4 or 5 .... hopefully a guy who runs angry !

I dont know if he is the total answer, but if we picked him up, I would certainly want to take a young guy in the draft. Thats assuming that Aldrige didnt fix is fumble addiction.

I'm sorry... but I've been thinking for a while... LaGarrett Blount from Oregon... the guy's stock is down because of the infamous punch... but I LOVE the way the dude runs and we may be able to get a 1st round talent in the 3rd-4th round.

Like everyone says we have alot of holes to fix bringing in FWP would be good IF he can stay healthy one less thing to think about this year, CP, AA & FWP not a bad trio.

Re: Portis/ Parker Combination?
 
I said it another thread too...my hunch is portis is gone if we sign parker. I think Shanny will take a veteran RB into the season but I also strongly believe he'll draft 1 or 2 (especially if we gain more picks).

CP didn't look good last year and Shanny/Allen have no reason to be overly devoted. It's about the team now rather than certain players.

Re: Portis/ Parker Combination?
 
[quote=diehard;670862]I somewhat agree that having another veteran RB wouldn't hurt but, why not keep Betts or Cartwright? Parker is no spring chicken and was hurt last year too. Too many examples of rookie RBs having success in this league (and in Shanahan's offense) goes against the need to sign Parker or LT for that matter. We're stuck with Portis only because of his contract.[/quote]

Willie Parker is 29 yrs old, Betts and Cartwright are 30 so not much of a difference there. I wouldn't mind having a backfield of Portis, Parker, and a rookie (see Thomas Jones, Leon Washington, and Shonn Greene last year). I think BA has already shown us that he's not going to overpay people, so I'm confident that they'll get a good deal with Parker. Also, I feel that Parker has a chip on his shoulder from last year.

I would hardly call it a "love affair." We have cut a few running backs in the last few weeks and Aldrige remains. I am not saying he is going to be great, I am only pointing out that he is still on the team.

Re: Portis/ Parker Combination?
 
Yeah Blount would be a good late round pick-up w/ Fast Willie and if Portis can get his head right and mouth in check, we could have something there.
