Seattle Waives Edgerrin James

Just thought this was newsworthy. I'm sure some moron will say "why should we pick up other people's trash" or something along the lines.

Re: Seattle Waives Edgerrin James

I'm all for any player being brought in who could provide something. James is better than Portis in alot of aspects, but right now i'm not sure how effective anybody would be on this team. Plus he is already 31 years old, so he is 2 years older than portis, but with maybe less mileage. I dont know his injury history either. They definatley need to upgrade at the runningback position, but i don't think James is the answer..

Re: Seattle Waives Edgerrin James

According to PFR, players from "the U" have scored touchdowns in 115 consecutive weeks, dating back to a Jeremy Shockey TD near the end of the 2002 season.

That means, if we signed James to pair with Portis, we'd have to score more TDs, and wouldn't at all be part of the reason that the streak broke.

On a related note, I'm writing an article on why the Redskins running game is close to being productive.

Re: Seattle Waives Edgerrin James

I understand about folks talking about others trash...but c'mon....RB, WR, Oline, LB depth is a serious issue....I'd be willing to give a pass if we grabbed a guy like this for a 3rd string role

Re: Seattle Waives Edgerrin James

It is unnecessary to anxiously look up the skirt of every veteran....road whore to determine that it is to late in the game for any of....that.

NEVERMIND...all we need is another sub 3 yard RB:

James failed to provide the punch Seattle hoped for when it cut T.J. Duckett (FSY) to make room for James. He gained just 125 yards on 46 carries with no scores. He averaged just 2.7 yards per carry.

James had a season-high 16 carries for 46 yards in Seattle's 41-0 win over Jacksonville, but James got double-digit carries in only one other game. Three times he was held to less than 10 yards rushing.

Re: Seattle Waives Edgerrin James

Until we can take a young stud to phase in as Portis phases out, and seeing as most teams hav atleast two viable runningbacks, why not give Edge a chance it can't hurt. It's better than Betts coming in the game and that is for sure. We gave Mr. Softee a chance.

Re: Seattle Waives Edgerrin James

Besides with the way things are going making a move here makes since. Betts is not doing anything. Rock needs more carries and that new dude (runningback acquisition) needs to touch the field. Zorn can never get people on the field. We don't really know what we have roster-wise (offense). Mitchell could be a star for one. How do I know Hakeem Nicks is one fo the best WRs in the league? Seeing him make them catches on Sunday.
