agree, that is if they're signing a vet to a reasonable contract. I wouldn't mind if they don't sign any fa rb.

I think he was a whole lot better than CP last year. CP looked terrible at times, stumbling on his blockers, losing his balance in the open field.

It was almost comical at times. But it was painful too.

Especially if we add a dash of Montario Hardesty to the mix.

2 injury prone RBs, that's a great idea.

Gainther is still listed on the roster on Redskins.com.

Re: Portis/ Parker Combination?

Ganther is gone

Redskins Insider - Willie Parker will visit Ashburn

We now know that at least five of the tailbacks who finished last season as members of the Redskins -- Rock Cartwright, Ladell Betts, Quinton Ganther, Marcus Mason and Eddie Williams -- will be continuing their careers somewhere else. The Redskins need to reload their backfield and one of the top candidates appears to be Pittsburgh's Willie Parker.

Let that be a decision for the coaches to make. After all, it was the Denver program that first recommended Alridge to the Redskins. Don't be blindsided by Zorn's opinion of Alridge because he had a problem with the fumbles, there could be a place on this team for a player with his abilities.

I'm with you on this. If he didn't punch the Boise guy he would've been a 1st rounder. Honestly I think the Boise guy deserved to get punched. But I wouldn't reach for the guy. He also had issues besides hitting this guy. A backfield w/ Parker, a rookie and another vet. I'd just cut ties w/ Portis.

Injury is my biggest concern as well. I was in favor of a Sproles/Chester Taylor/T. Jones move but having 2 guys in the backfield who seem to have dropped off and have missed most of last year with injuries, I wouldnt really get excited about that.

Re: Portis/ Parker Combination?

Although both have been often injured during their careers, they both know what it takes and how to be the number 1 guy. That combination with the addition of a power rookie running back like Blount would give us the running backs for the present (portis/ parker) and the future (Blount/ Aldridge).

Re: Portis/ Parker Combination?

Chico I am with you as well. Having Portis and Willie P doesn't sound that great as far as durability goes. Neither one of them has made it through last season and both have injury history.

If we are to add and older Vet back I would prefer either LT or Thomas Jones. But the problem is you still don't get a guy without injury history. And to be clear I understand that all back have injuries. The injuries I am focusing on are prolonged or season ending injuries. Willie has had 2 or 3 years ending. LT just one. And Thomas Jones has been banged up but managed to "gut" it out a few times.
