Re: Unit Analysis: Running Backs

I think the Seahawks will actually crash and burn this year. They have been so streaky with their marginal talent only lying with Alexander.

I agree that he is too important to the Seahawks, but if he was really that important then they would have found a way to sign him long term and not just to a tender...

Re: Unit Analysis: Running Backs

I think they don't really want to sign him long term because he's a complete outsider on his own team... not as bad as ricky williams, but still not the guy you'd want to rush to commit all your cap and your entire offenssive to long term since he seems a bit flaky.

don't get me wrong, the production and talent is there...

Some pundit (I can't recall who) said that lots of teams are looking toward franchising their RB's in the future. The risk of injury and the dropoff that most RB's show make tying up long-term dollars in the position too risky.

The Giants are the media darlings.........and although Barber improved last year, what about his tendency to fumble.................

He had fewer fumbles last year than any year previous I believe...
