what is the status of willie? outside chance he is a late roster cut casualty?
In regards to Maroney, we should start rumors that he and Adalius Thomas are best friends. I'm sure that will get him cut in a heart beat by Darth Hoody.

Willie Parker will likely hit free agency. The question with him will be his durability, I think part of the reason why he lost out his starter role to Mendenhall was his health.

I think that he had some fumbling issues but not sure if that was it.. I know he had a big goal line fumble

Re: Chester Taylor anyone?

I wouldnt be against Taylor at all. I've always liked him as a player and as long as it wouldnt cost us big (which it probably wont) I dont mind.

He can be a stopgap to replace Betts since it will take a while to rehab both of his knees.

I'll never forget our SB season of 1991 when Riggs had less than 80 carries but had more TDs (11) than Byner and Ervins combined.

Re: Chester Taylor anyone?

RB has always been a young man's position. Outside of a few exceptions most guys typically hit the wall at 30 or 31.

We should have a no starting running back policy. Get 2 or 3 good ones and split carries. Skins shouldn't give a crap who the starter is. What about Willie Parker? Where's the Willie Parker thread? Keep Portis and platoon him with one or two other backs. RBs are a dime a dozen. Don't need a great one to win the Super Bowl. See also Saints, Steelers (with Willie Parker), Colts, Patriots.

Need a good, solid running game, not necessarily a great running back.

Gone are the days when RBs even matter that much anymore, at least when it comes to playing in Super Bowls. Look at the last 10 Super Bowls, both the winners and the losers.

Saints, Colts, Steelers (featuring one William Parker), Eagles, Seahawks, Patriots (did they even have any running backs?), Ravens, Raiders, Bears, Rams, Giants, Cardinals.

Outside of Shaun Alexander and Marshall Faulk, these teams didn't have any all-world running backs that carried their teams to victory. Many platooned their backfields or at least got by with a solid enough running game to keep Defenses honest.

Pair Clinton Portis with a Willie Parker or Chester Taylor and mix in a rookie or free agent and now you're cooking with gas. Just need an O line and a credible passing game to open up the running game.

My philosophy on running backs is usually Young and Cheap! But if you have to pay Portis anyway and can get a proven complimentary back without breaking the bank, that will do as well.

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.

I agree, Taylor is still a quality back, and can be quite effective if he say takes a quarter to a third of the rushing load off of Clinton. Signing him to a two year deal would be a nice move.

Re: Chester Taylor anyone?

Anyone who in this day and age has the name Chester is okay in my book. Cool name if you ask me. Seriously, I have always liked this guy and the way he plays I would not mind seeing him in DC at all.

Re: Chester Taylor anyone?

Yes, I'll take a Chester Taylor with fries to go. He would upgrade our backfield. Do we want Taylor or Ganther to be picking up carries?

No doubt, I was a youngin but I remember every time that we got near the goal line, we knew who to hand it to.
