I met Q's family yesterday at the game -- they were awesome. Hope he stays with us.

I'd cut Cartwright. He's not going to start here and maybe he even lost the KR job. Let him try somewhere else...hopefully it'll work this time for him.

Re: At Seasons End Ganther or Rock Who Do You Keep?

I like the way the Cowgirls utilize there 3 RB's plus it will add more years to Barber's career maybe we need to try that instead of trying to force Portis into a featured back role at the end of his career.

Ganther, younger and I think quicker. He's like Rock, but has some moves as well. I love Rock, but I don't see the need for him anymore.

Re: At Seasons End Ganther or Rock Who Do You Keep?

Before the season I wouldn't have been upset if Rock wasn't on the team and I figure that I'll be the same after this one. That being said he's given it everything that he's got and it really comes down to who else we have around in the off-season. Not trying to knock on him at all though, he's always done what's been asked of him. If we want to do a split-carry system next year, keep him around. If we're looking for a feature back, once again we'll have to see who else we bring in. Cutting him due to production or salary wouldn't make a lot of sense to me though, unless he's only good enough to be the number 3 back, in which case we may as well get younger.

Re: At Seasons End Ganther or Rock Who Do You Keep?

I didn't want to start a new thread for this so I figured this was the most appropriate place for RB discussion..

From Mort's chat today:
Do NFL people think CJ Spiller is an every down NFL back or more of a Felix Jones-Reggie Bush fast but fragile type of player?
Chris Mortensen (12:01 PM)

What I'm hearing about Spiller is that NFL teams love him. He could even be a top 10 pick. He also has great character.

I wouldn't be opposed to Spiller, if we address OL in free agency and with our 2nd round pick.

I would rather have one of the quarterbacks than Spiller and I want no part of the quarterbacks.

The best offensive lineman available is the only choice that makes sense to me with our number one pick.

Sure, as long as there's a guy available worthy of that pick.

I don't follow college ball much so I don't know who the top lineman are just yet. Are there some lineman that will go high?

So if we are drafting #8 and Russell Okung, the top rated lineman and only tackle with a 1st round grade, is off the board the next best offensive lineman available is the only choice that makes sense? I understand we need to draft linemen but drafting a position just for the sake of drafting that position is foolish.

at #8, I would think(hope) we try hard to trade down and pick up some extra picks.

It is early but Kiper has 3 tackles in the top 14. I would argue that drafting a QB or RB and putting them behind this line would be foolish.

The "best player available" tact has given us below average results for quite a while.

I would hope so too but I am happy with them falling in love with Orakpo and jumping on him.

I only see Okung in his top 25, 2010 NFL draft -- Mel Kiper Jr.: The newest Big Board (Dec. 9, 2009) - ESPN

I never advocated leaving this line intact. There are going to be some very good players available in free agency because of the uncapped year. Let's see how that plays out before assessing our 2010 OL based on the 2009 roster.

My fault, I was looking at Scout's inc on ESPN's draft page.

Isn't the consensus that the uncapped year would prevent good players from hitting the market?

It would allow us to control JC and Rogers for example.
