The appropriate comparison is Darren Sproles.
C'mon, man. I don't disagree with you, but you really didn't need the last sentence of the first paragraph, did you? We're all Redskins fans here.

I don't mean to use him like Freeman, I just felt he could give us that type of production, I like what he brings to the table, I just think he should get more touches, maybe I am insane in my thinking, just a thought

not insane. He's earned a bigger role...like I said before, my preference would be a 60-40 carry split with Fat Rob when the offense is attacking.

Id like to see second half "finisher" Perine get carries when we have leads and opponents defensives are tired. Fresh bowling ball to finish the game and punish defenders.

Re: Chris Thompson inks 2 year extension

I think the redskins are using Chris Thompson perfectly. The comparison of Chris to Darren Sproles is a great compliment to Chris. The contract extension is well-deserved.

Re: Chris Thompson inks 2 year extension

I think they use him just right too. He's very productive but with his size you have to keep him on a pitch count.

Definitely deserving of more touches. But Freeman was 12th in the NFL last year in touches among RBs, he touched the ball 281 times. Thompson had 117.

Thompson can't give you Freeman production if you don't give him the ball that many times. And you can't give him the ball that many times or he'll break down.

You just didn't think. It's OK you're human. I still get to make fun of you though.

Re: Chris Thompson inks 2 year extension

I like when FSU players play well for Redskins, glad we kept him.

I'm in Tallahassee right now for the 1st time in my life to see them play and game got cancelled. Also was in Atlanta Tuesday to see Braves game for 1st time and that got rained out. Great weather in the southeast.
