I have been singing that song for awhile. Most forums use red font to indicate sarcasm, it is pretty universal rule.

Good quotes: Preferred running style: "going downhill and allowing the running back to be physical and really get into a rhythm."

Playing in the NFC East: "Thatís my kind of football: grinding out tough, hard-nosed football. Thatís me. Thatís who I am. So, Iím going to embrace it.Ē

Hightower could be a very good fit here. Could be the biggest add in FA.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I have always picked him up in fantasy leagues, he is usually a really good fantasy value late in the draft. Playing here might just up his value a bit. If it is between him and ATV, Ill take Hightower any day. Torain is a servicable 2nd RB. Flashes of greatness, but no consistency. If Hightower can limit those fumbles, he will do fine

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I didn't think much about this trade when it first happened, but since then I've realized it might be one of the biggest deals we make this whole offseason. Especially if Torain is injured again. This guy's got a great attitude, and like has been mentioned, if he can cut down the fumbles there's no reason why Hightower can't be great.

Maybe fred Biletnikoff could show him a way to hold on to the ball.

I think that AP was one in 50 his worst season, these figures are one in 47ish

Avg is around one in 75-80 carries

I guess I gotta do math before posting something from now on... The numbers didn't look bad from a quick glimpse. Well, I'm sure Mike knows what he's doing

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I want to be a big fan of Hightower, but until he can prove he can hold on to the ball, he absolutely cannot be the starter or get a lot of carries. Fumbling the ball defeats the purpose of the running game.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I expect Bobby Turner will be screaming at him daily until it's fixed. But I'm not sure it's as big a deal as we're making it early. He had five fumbles last season, but he went a lot of games without having one. They were spaced out.

I'm not too worried about it right now.
