Its a possibility. If not why wouldn't we stick with what we had. But the thing that bothers me is that we didn't sign a OL to replace RT. But we will probably have to eventually. So someone would have to be cut loose. I think the depth at the other positions is critical.

Im not a mod but that DIDN'T make sense. I don't want to speak for others but I think what SS was referring to was how the words you used and how you used them made no sense, not your opinion of the RB situation.

Then you follow it up with this.

Aldridge is not on the team because someone is not doing their job, it's because Thomas went down and a roster spot opened up, and Aldridge was someone that Vinny liked and he was really close to being the 53rd man on the roster a few weeks ago. So the opportunity presented itself to bring him back. Simple as that, no need to look any further.

If it had something to do with Betts or Rock, why are they still on the roster?
Really? They signed him because a roster spot opened up. Why didn't they sign a OL. So you are saying we need all the running backs we have now? If we do choose to sign a OL who you think will be one of the first out the door?

Thats a good question. I will just say this. Time will tell.

We need our depth everywhere. So if a OL is needed. Who are we going to get ride of a DL or one of our "many" rbs?

or maybe Henson..lmao

The replacement for Thomas is already on the roster, so you don't need to sign an OL just because you put one on IR. Besides, we're already carrying another OL on the practice squad.

If the need for another OL opened up, it's probably Mason or Aldridge that get let go.

Dude is that how you spell sensitive? You have the nerve to talk. LMAO

Should realize the reason we signed Aldridge today? it wasn't because Betts or Rock were that awesome. Is that egg on your face or your foot in your mouth?

I will correct this statement

Some should realize the reason we signed Aldridge today? It wasn't because Betts or Rock were that awesome [end sarcasm]. Is that egg on your face or your foot in your mouth.

This is a response to people saying that Betts and Rock are capable back ups. If so why do we need to sign alridge. Why did Mason get some carries the other game.

Either Vinny is stupid or one of the RBs is going to get cut. Because we have a more pressing need for a OL. So someone will have to go and our depth is needed at other positions on the team.

Does that clear it up? or am I being to sensetive? LMAO

Okay. That may be what happens. Maybe not. But why cut Rbs that have potential for a 30 yr old back that isn't producing and hasn't produced in years. I will admit Betts is excellent on screen passes. But I think Alridge is much better. But you might be right. But either way. If we need a OL. Someone is going to be gone. Maybe Betts Rock Mason or Aldrige. But like I said if they were doing their job why would he bring someone in. I would think it is because he did things better than some of the other backs. Why would Mason get some carries last game if Betts was producing? What has Rock done this year? Who knows. It could be anyone of them besides CP.

I'll go as far to say that signing Aldrige as the 53rd man to the active squad neither puts egg on my face or a foot in my mouth. That may occur if Aldrige actually plays and actually outperforms CP or Betts.

Quite frankly, signing Aldrige is unlikely to put Aldrige on the field.

Mason had what, 3 carries, and basically did nothing. I wouldn't draw the conclusion that Mason was in there because of anything Betts was or wasn't doing. I think they wanted to work him in to his first live action and see what he could do.

Sometimes you have to just take things at face value. You seem to want to make everything into a conspiracy theory.

I honestly don't see Betts going anywhere during the season. If they need a roster spot they're not going to cut someone that will result in a cap hit of nearly $2M. Plus believe it or not the coaches like him.

I don't think Rock gets cut during the season either.

You make some good points. But your are right in saying the coaches like him. But going by Zorns judgement that doesn't say much. As far as Betts not going anywhere. That is because of the 2M cap hit. I agree with you on that totally. But he still is not producing. Who knows about Rock. I think the thread he is holding on by is called Danny Smith.

You are right it wouldn't be good to draw a conclusion from Mason playing. But we usually dont use 3 rbs in a game. Not saying its a bad idea. But it may be a change in philopshy from years past. When we did we brought Rock in. But dont say it has nothing to do with Betts not performing. Its probably a little bit of both. I repsect your points. The reality is that its a very sticky situations for these reasons stated above.

1. Betts 2M contract (unless we trade)
2. Rock on ST and Danny Smith lost 2 other ST players this offseason (not producing)

But saying that it doesn't mean they are producing. Just that we are in a pickle. So the decisions we should sometimes may be difficult because of those two factor.

*To add to this our O-line isn't producing on rushing plays. We might have RT's replacement but we still need to fill in that slot in my opinion incase someone else goes down. Now or in the future and someone will be a casuality. It might be Mason. It might be Aldrige. It might be Rock. But someone is going.

So we are both partly right. Its like Technicalities vs. Talent/Production. Both points are good ones. Each has to be taking into consideration. Thanks for the insight.

Okay then the jury is still out as far as the egg goes. lol. But they are ready and loaded.

Ok, I was just going to stand by and watch/Attempt to read your butchering of the english language but this is too much. You could have just said, "schoolbus toothpaste mudpuddle Zorn", and that would have made about as much sense as anything else you write.

All bs aside, I don't know if you are in a hurry when you post or what it is, but the stuff you write is VERY hard to read and almost impossible to understand.

Is that better?

Yes I am writing fast. But you are being anal. I will proof read from now on before I hit the "submit reply" button. Does that make you feel better? Some people are more worried about grammar and correcting people than talking football.

What I am interested in is being able to understand a person's post the first time I read it. When you have to keep rereading a persons post to try to guess what they were trying to say it is hard to even take them seriously.
