Aldrick Robinson...got some speed right? Get him in there.
God


Seriously when B Mitch said he wanted to see him last week, i turned the TV off. We've seen Beck, I dont want to see QB play worse than that, and Beck's QB play hurt my soul.

I know it a business but that is pretty bad of a team to release the guy 4 days before the last game.

Weak runner who falls down easily at initial contact. Never can get the extra yards.
Horrible receiving back. Can't catch cleanly and lacks agility.
Speed or "burst" terribly lacking. Slowest back of the bunch.
And poor vision. Can't find the right lanes and makes his O-line look worse than they already are.

These are the reasons why he's gone.

Stallworth made the team cuz he had one spectacular play against the Tampa scrubs. He was hardly noticeable for the rest of the preseason.

What took Shanahan so long to promote Robinson to the active roster? The kid struggled in preseason along with Hankerson and Royster. Why wait until the final game. If they were going to release Ryan Torain, they might as well done it sooner. Probably after the Patriots game at least. To allow Robinson to have one game to shine is not to evaluate him properly.

Stallworth made the team because he was a guy who could work with the rookie receivers. There is always more than meets the eye. And since the 'skins have resigned him, Donte' has been having impressive games.

I disagree,with your reasons,if by some way shape or form you get him back to running like he did last year(he has been banged up), I'd take him....and he'll be cheap on the cap.

Good story, it would be great to see him make the team next year.

Good move!! I liked him coming out USC, he was great before his accident. Good gamble.

Even when Ryan Torain's is at his best, his top-end speed is not that threatening and he is not a threat as a receiver.

No need for Torain, no big surprise he was cut anyone could have seen this coming. With Helu and Royster we have a couple of nice young backs to build with going forward. I wouldn't be surprised if we look for another back in the later rounds in the draft too.

He couldnt catch at all. Im not sure if it was because of his broken hand though.

Im starting to wonder if Shanahan is gonna go after Hillis next year. I think Hightower will be back next year but may not be as effective as he was before. We need a big rb who can also block.
