    [QUOTE=Joe W. Namath;4380829]HUH? Michael Bush averaged 3.8 yards per carry last year. Hes one of the most NON explosive backs in the league. He is the definition of a JAG.

    Draft a running back who has some speed and has a chance to be great.

    These stop gap signings of JAG running backs are pointless.

    We have enough JAG rbs on the roster w/ greene, powell etc.[/QUOTE]

    +1

    I really don't see how Bush and Tolbert are upgrades over Greene. All they are is more expensive. We have so many holes on this team right now and we're worried about signing JAG overpriced running backs?

    who said they would replace greene? and tolbert is far from a JAG and would add a much needed element to our running game.

    Because they are talented fullbacks. Greene sucks donkey nuts as a fullback.

    M Bush is not a FB. Raiders once try to get him on the field together with D Mcfadden. (as a FB) M Bush wanted no part of fullback

    I don't think he does anything for the Jets running game. He probably going to end up with the Bengals.

    [QUOTE]Michael Bush was chosen by the [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oakland_Raiders"]Oakland Raiders[/URL] in the [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007_NFL_Draft"]2007 NFL Draft[/URL] with the first pick of the fourth round. With his broken leg still hobbling him, he was declared [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physically_Unable_to_Perform"]Physically Unable to Perform[/URL] for the entire 2007 season.[URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Bush#cite_note-7"][8][/URL]
    After a two year hiatus, Bush finally returned to the football field in 2008. He was the Raiders' third string halfback but saw some action because of injuries to [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darren_McFadden"]Darren McFadden[/URL] and [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justin_Fargas"]Justin Fargas[/URL]. He also filled in as a blocking fullback.

    ahhhh...the size, and spot duty, fooled me; I never put that together; watching the Raiders week in and week out.
