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

I'm not loving 10% of the roster dedicated to the RB position but I like Alridge. I can see Betts being shopped prior to the week 6 trading deadline and Rock possibly cut at some point in the season. If anyone was coming back, I was thinking Bridges.

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.
Sure, everyone fumbles given enough carries. But some fumble more often than others, and the Alridge that I have seen is a fumble machine.

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.
So you really think he's gonna get even one snap as a WR? No offense, but you're in la la land if you think we have any WR aspirations for him.

Seriously, I agree. I watched the Dallas/Giants game and was actually supprised at how the Giants were playing them defensively. My ony assumption is that the Giants were afraid Dallas would break out on a long run on the outside. So they spread out their D-line to try and either force the RB back toward the center where they could collapse the D-line on them or use the side line as an extra man. Dallas found the center to be the Giants weakness and utilized it.

When the Giants played us they stacked the box between the tackles and essentially stopped our running plays. Now we have an outside threat and maybe the Giants will have to respect that and the middle will open up for Portis, Betts, or Mason.

3 similar RB's is over kill. I'd keep the best older RB (Portis) and the youngest (Mason) for the future. But I'm sure if anyone is cut it would be Rock cause they are using Thomas to return kicks also and he's doing just as good.

I've never seen him fumble in a real game that cost us a game yet, until he does I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt. I'm not going to keep knocking a guy I haven't even seen play in a real game.

He did start as a WR in college before he was converted to RB. We have 5 receivers on the roster, I don't think there's room unless someone is traded.

Bridges signed with the Cards.

Well if you call that a fumble when you are attempting to pass and the DE knocked the ball out I guess thats a fumble.

and what are you using to jude this by? I ask cause I thought he only fumbled once, twice at the most. Can I call JC a fumbling machine? Hopefully he holds the ball with two hands.

or Cooley who almost had two fumbles during the Giants game (one went out of bounds and the second was a non-fumble because his knee touched the ground a millisecond before the ball came out).

I am glad that we have Vice President of football operations looking to make our team better in every way.
There is a reason he is still on the the street. He can't play anymore with those bad knees. If he was so hot don't you think another team would have offered him a contract.

You could say the same about Levi Jones...as I said before, Buffalo has no offensive line and they haven't talked to him.

2nd I think we all know they could sign whoever they wanted. Maybe even 4 field goal kickers if they wanted. I just think we were supprised that an O-lineman was not picked up considering they started the season with 8 and obviously the team thought they needed 8, now were at 7. I guess the team is actually happy with Rinehart which is a good sign.
Why sign a O-Lineman if there are no O-lineman out there better than what we have on our roster. I think if there was a O-Lineman out worthy to help us we would bring him in. Quality O-lineman don't just sit around 32 teams would be signing them in a heart beat. We signed Alridge because he brings speed to the RB positon.

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.
Didnt Santana Moss just fumble againts the Rams. People fumbles happen in the game of football, just hope its not very often. Even L.T. fumbled against the Raiders and he had carried the rock over 900 attempts and fumbled. So stop worrying about 2 fumbles that Alridge had.

Welcome back Alridge
I think this kid needs a chance to show what he can do with the rock in his hands. The Texans have a simular RB now and thats the kid from West Virgina ( Steve Slaton). I like the move so what do we do with 5 RB? Do we look for a trade partner for Betts, or do we cut Mason or Rock. I cant see us carrying 5 RB to long on the roster. Alridge can't help us unless he sees the field so lets hope Zorn will get him the ball either on special teams or the offense.
