There is a good argument for keeping Rock and also for moving in another direction.
Correction, I've concluded that he knows nothing about football and that I am the smartest guy in this thread.

We're talking about the 3rd, possibly 4th string RB. I mean, really?

I'm talking more about our best special teams player than I am about our 3rd or 4th string RB. There's a huge difference, IMO.

But mainly this is a pissing match between me and a half-wit.

Yes, I'm easily amused.

Well I'll take having the biggest argument of the offseason be about the 4th string RB or 3rd string QB, than having a huge question mark be about a 1st team player at any position.

Yeah I get what you're saying, I'm just commenting in general. Seems to be a lot of passion over who should be the 3rd or 4th string RB, just seems kinda silly for people to get so fired up over it.

Yeah guess it's better than a starting QB debate

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

Just to toss my hat in, I think it's going to be Portis, Betts, Rock, Aldridge.

Either that or Portis, Betts, Rock.

I really don't see Mason making it, and I'd give the slight edge to Aldridge making it over Dorsey.

Wow, I didn't know we had a crisis at third string running back.

If the team is going to get rid of Betts, I would hope that they would get compensated for it. As good as Mason was during the preseason, I wouldn't replace Betts with him, and Rock has his special teams play that gives him the advantage.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I would bet that if Aldridge makes it before Mason. I think that if Mason makes it they cut Cartight. A fifth running back has to be different, so I am betting on Aldrige and his change of pace speed.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I think that Dorsey is more likely than Alridge, who has both health and fumble problems.

You might be right, but there is one guy that no one has mentioned that I think has an outside chance to make the team. Eddie Williams. Prior to training camp I heard Vinny's exact words were he would probably start the season on the pup list. This struck me as odd, because he was basically saying he made the team. So maybe we are all overlooking this guy.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I'm not getting the Aldrige love. He had one good preseason game. Did I miss something?

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

Well he only played in one, and had like one drive, where he looked like greased lighting and ran for like 50 yds and had 6 or seven yard average

How can you have a pissing match with yourself??? Very interesting.

I dont think our special teams have been that spectacular in years. I'd rather have a player that can do multiple things for our team. Than a subpar returner who is a excellent special teams tackler. If that is the only reason you want to keep him. You can't even be called a half wit.

If anything Rock is expendable. Thomas, Betts, Moss, etc. can return kicks and play another part on the team. Rock only plays special teams. I never said Mason was the only option. In my eyes. It isn't a question of CP production its about if he gets hurt and Betts comes in an takes over the reigns. Who is going to back him up? If your answer is Rock. Then why couldn't he do it last year. Dude get a clue. Get off Rocks nuts. Because he is a average player at best and is almost 30. I would take Mason, Aldridge & Dorsey over him. Special teams is important. But like someone said. If he is the best player on ST and ST sucks. What does that say? One thing it says is Danny Smith needs to be a better coach and prepare his unit better. Another thing is if Rock is so valuable as a tackler. Why have teams been getting superior filed position on returns for the past few years..??


If you have a player than can return punts and play on offense or defense as aback up or other wise.... Why would you keep a one dimensional subpar player? That stunts yoru chances for having a running back to mold for the future. Again Rock is almost 30..Get a clue. Idiot
