Re: Portis put on IR, done for '09

So how does everyone feel about addressing the RB situation if Portis is done (injury or cut do to salary) in Washington for next year? Id like to see that second round pick used on a RB (with the first used on a lineman) if there are any there worthy of a pick. I seriously worry about Betts too being ready for next season with that injury, sounded pretty severe. Yes Ganther has shown something, but is he a starter in this league, is that name "big" enough for Snyder? Is Rock done? I think Rock is a great 3rd running back, but thats about as high Id have him on the depth chart. Any free agents? Id wouldnt mind Sproles splitting time back there with Betts...but at what cost? I mos def dont want to see a Portis-size contract for any free agent out there...any opinions???

Re: Portis put on IR, done for '09

I think it would be wise to take a RB somewhere in the draft. A rotation of Ganther/Rock/Betts might be ok for the short run, but we need some fresh legs in here.

Re: Portis put on IR, done for '09

I agree. Portis has played his best football here, and he stands to gain nothing in the future but risking his long-term health.

He was on his last legs in 2008 and this year should prove to everybody what it looks like when a runningback's wheels literally fall off.

We need a new, young RB.

Absolutely. Lots of strong running back candidates-Spiller, Best, Dwyer, Gerhart, Dixon-just to name a few.

But there could also be some interesting FA options-Sproles, LenDale White, Norwood, Mike Bell

Personally, I think Spiller is really tempting but he's a top 20 pick and I'd rather look for someone in the 3rd or 4th round

I love Spiller, he can do it all & seems a solid guy. I would love it if we got him, but the smarter move would be a LT if one's available & we have a top 10-15 pick.

Norwood is a burner, I'm surprised he doesn't get the ball more in atl. I thought sproles re-signed last year? did he just play w/franchise tag?

Lendale White is not dependable IMO.

He's on IR because he's been ineffective and we have far better options to run the ball. Since Portis has been out we have had a spark on offense. I like Portis, but we all pointed out that he seemed to have "lost a step"...he has a lot of miles on those legs, maybe it's time to part ways...especially with what we are paying him.

It's really brave to flex your keyboard muscles about someone else's brain injury.

Norwood is FRAGILE as they come.. He's constantly dinged up. I'd be fine with a RBBC next season with a banger like White and a speed guy to complement him. Ganther should be at least part of the camp mix.

If he's really available then, I'd love the pick IF we've addressed the line in previous rounds.

If you need any help, I'm pretty sure BHA has a gun.
