    Id rather have a real passrusher! Defense will get the ball back for the O. Give McKnight a cnamce! Powell looks OK. RBs are found in later rounds and still do well. We need speed on defense as well as offense.

    Agreed, enough of the 1st round picks on defense.

    We have a RB on the roster right now that could be a #1 RB in Bilal Powell. How about we see what Powell can do?

    He's got prototype HalfBack build at 5'11" and 210 lbs, with above average speed. He has shown to have a little wiggle in his step, and can catch the ball too. I think he's gonna surprise you all.

    We know he can fumble. That's not good. But he will keep getting chances here because the competition is thin.

    Faster? No. Look at TJ's long runs for those years. Look at Greene's.

    Stronger? Yes.

    Was our oline better then? Yes.

    TJ was better than Greene. Sure, he wasn't explosive, but he'd find the hole and get those yards. He was excellent in pass protection and could catch the ball, as well.

    Greene has awful vision, can't block and can't catch. He sucks. Plain and simple.

    Bilal Powell needs to be the starter. Powell has the potential to be good.

    Powell could...
