Re: Brandon Banks

I'd rather have a muffer who can take it to the house and comes inexpensive than have a muffer who dances on his toes and had a big FA contract.

My $.02.

How is that not a fumble? We didn't lose it but it's most certainly ruled a fumble.

Re: Brandon Banks

I just heard Banks on TheFan. Here's a couple of things he mentioned during the interview:

* He can to camp weighing 146 lbs; now he weighs 151 lbs and that's where he'll stay, per the coaching staff.

* Said he never raced Chris Johnson, but they do know each other from East Carolina. He and John Wall are pretty tight too. They grew up together and have known each other since he was 6 years old; Wall was at the game Friday. I guess the little dance he did after he scored was a tribute to Wall.

* Said he ran a 4.2/40 on his pro day in college. Said Tampa was the only other team he was considering.

I think Banks makes the team or at the very least goes to the practice squad. Seems like Shanny and Danny Smith are going to work with him on the fumbling and muff issues.

Re: Brandon Banks

As I said earlier, I am concerned about his hands/ball control but excited about his speed and potential.

I hope he takes one more to the house (think he will) and makes the team. As to keeping him only as a PR...I don't think we will or have to. Set up a block/pick on a screen pass to get him into the open, or a quick inside slant to him and he could be off to the races on offense too.

If we put him on the practice squad...someone else WILL sign him.

I think that if he gets PS'd some other team would be more than willing to give him a shot as a return specialist.

He could always use that 14lb ball that Peterson has been using, as long as it didn't make him tip over. (just messing around, excited about the kid)

Re: Brandon Banks

I'd bet Banks has better hands than Peterson.

Re: Brandon Banks

Maybe. This is a disadvantage that we hadn't really discussed yet as far as his weight goes..

Rich_Campbell

Tiny Justin Tryon just put Brandon Banks on the ground during an attempted run block. Again, Banks' size is a big disadvantage at WR.

Re: Brandon Banks

I saw Tryon make a big hit at the game too, don't underestimate him because of his size.

Barnes hit Jahvid Best so hard that his breakfast came back up...little guys CAN hit sometimes.

Translation after being up for over 24 hours.

I'd rather have a muff who can clean my house and comes cheap than have a muff who dances with a fat ass.

Re: Brandon Banks

Anyone remember Tim Dwight? He was 5-8/180 and returned kicks for a long time -- and did it very well too.

I remember him. He was an excellent returner but a marginal receiver. At 180 lbs. he was also 20% bigger than Banks.

Thumbs up Re: Brandon Banks

I agree with those who said,if he returns another TD on PR or even KR...He's a lock to make team. (I think he makes it regardless,unless he starts fumbling them over and over cause you can tell Shanahan loves this kid)

I'm sure 100% he's making the team and all it took was the glee on Shanahan's face as he talked about him during the post game press conference.

I agree. A compensatory pick would be awarded if that were to happen. If Banks is the better overall returner, it would be smart to have him on the active roster. Austin would be safer allocated to the practice squad. Right now, Armstrong and Roydell seem to be a lock.
