It's not like he's going to be a full time 25 carries per game kind of back so I'm not sure you can compare him directly to that type of back. He's a 10-15 touches per game out of the backfield kind of guy. He's definitely in his prime right now, personally I wouldn't hesitate to make him an offer.

Re: Would Dunta Robinson & Darren Sproles be 'business as usual'?

^ The thing we all have to remember with a guy like sproles is he is not a Full time back. The guy isn't going to be pounding it up the miccle pay in and play out. He will get at a min 30% of his touches through the air. And when he is taking the ball from the qb he is out in space. MS could do some nice things with this guy.

We need CP/ Ganther to be the pounder and DS to be the change of pace.

I really hope we can do better than Ganther. He's very limited, a borderline #3 type to me.

I definitely agree. I would rather have Betts and Aldridge over Ganther. (Still hope that Betts is gone...)

oh, i wouldnt either, and I really hope we sign him... i just dont think he's worth as much as we'll probably pay him. and i think if we pay him like a #1 RB, then he's going to be used more than he ever has been before.

I hope he doesn't get crazy $$ from us. Not for a 3rd down/situational type of guy. It should be interesting to see how free agency plays out, because I don't see Allen tossing around money like Snyder used to.

The Broncos in 2001 set a team record payroll record with 102 million(maybe we broke it again). Shanahan will spend, and Allen was handcuffed by cheap owners.

Al Davis isn't what I would call cheap owner.

And even when Allen was in Oakland, he wasn't making the decisions, so Oakland is really irrelevant.

I wish the NFL could do something about teams like Tampa though. Theyre so cheap its disgusting.

i dont think sproles had a great year last year stat wise. didnt he avg 3.5 yds or something per carry. less than 700 yds?

imo id pass on sproles and look at chester taylor.

As I've alluded to before they're not so much cheap as much as they are maxed out financially. For goodness sake they own and NFL franchise and the second most recognizable soccer franchise in the world in Manchester United with a 700 Million Euro debt.

However they should have strongly considered this situation before they bought Man U. If I were them I would sell the Buc's and focus on Man U.

He had 343 yard rushing, 497 receiving, 1300 on kick returns, and 183 on punt returns. You don't think we could use 2323 all purpose yards?

Yup. When I get bummed about my own crushing personal debt, I thank my lucky stars that I'm not more than a billion dollars in debt, as the Glazers are. Yikes.

I would prefer Sproles, but Chester Taylor would be my second pick to fill #2 RB...but I think after OLine our biggest need is at RB. We are getting old their and injury prone, sounds like our OLine issue bout 3 years ago and we never addressed it...then the bottom fell out
