I'm with you on that. His butter fingers frighten me. This is one reason why I preferred Dorsey.

Re: Welcome back Anthony Alridge.........

I've got to think there is another move coming. I don't have time to go look at the 31 other depth charts around the league, but how many teams really carry 5 rbs (not including a FB)? Unless we're going to make Alridge a full time PR or KR, I don't see why we do this. No need to have a 5th RB buried on the depth chart if he's not going to be a contributor on teams.

Well I do agree Sheriff. He does fumble and needs to work on that. I think what excites people is that it's been so long since we've had anyone with this type of speed and with the emergence of Sproles and change of pace backs in the offenses around the league, the thought is he could take it to the house on any given play. Assuming he doesn't fumble it on the way of course.

If he ever get's an opportunity to play he certainly adds something we don't currently have, speed. I'm actually glad to see he's coming back.

Re: Welcome back Anthony Alridge.........

Guys we might be looking at a possible switch to Wr for Aldridge. Just a thought. Thomas isn't getting it done and Moss sucks. Betts or Rock might not be the ones on the hotseat or trade block!!!!!!

Re: Welcome back Anthony Alridge.........

Not really, why would they bring a 5th back in? Moss isn't getting it done and has lost a step. Betts has a goal line fumble problem but it hasn't been a problem this season yet. Why do you need a 5th RB? The guy has killer speed, and the newbie WRs dropped some TDs. Maybe they are looking to increase WR speed. Crazier shit has been tried before. They could put him as flanker and do some end arounds once in awhile, etc. I am just brainstorming here. Sort of dumb to get rid of Betts or Rock at this point.

Was this sarcasm? I second that worst post of the day nomination as well, even if this post wasn't intentionally sarcastic. I've heard some shit but this is so far beyond the normal dose of "crazy stupidity" on this board that I actually can't tell.

And I agree SGG, it's hard not to like Alridge's speed but how often he fumbles concerns me.

I think this move is gonna precede another one. I just don't see why JZ would carry 5 backs on the roster.

One could ask, "Why they would bring a 5th back in, just to turn him into a 6th wide receiver?"

True, I am just trying to think why on earth they would bring in a 5th RB unless they were going to try some crazy shit out. I don't see why it was such a dumb proposition considering everyone is asking why bring in a 5th RB. I see no reason why the current batch of RBs on our roster need to be padded with an additional man. I mean what has hurt us in the red zone the most, our RBs or WRs?

I like speed also, and we don't have a back on the roster who can take a handoff to the house. Fumbles, every skilled player on our roster has fumbled at one time or another. Cooley, two times in one game last year, Portis twice in the Ravens game, one taken to the house. Jason Campbell maybe cost us the Giants game this year. Moss fumbled on Sunday, we don't even need to talk about Betts.

I'm giving the guy the benefit of the doubt, let him play and see if he fumbles in a real game, if he does he's got plenty of company.

Re: Welcome back Anthony Alridge.........

Ok, now have you all seen how this works? I come one this site and put the Skins on blast for not having an outside the tackles running threat to spread out the defense. Basically I decensitized you guys ahead of time prior to the Skins picking up Alridge.

Had I not done this you guys would have been up in arms about the Skins not having a clue and not picking up another O-lineman.

This team needs speed not a smaller worse pass blocking version of Betts and Portis. Great move.
