    Dude I love your knowledge of football. But we know when they say unknown, it's not questioning talent. It's questioning their ability to produce in a bigger role.

    If Ivory could stay healthy, the Jets would have had to trade a second round pick and probably more to get him.

    Get over the catching crap. He has the ability to be a premier runner in the NFL.

    Problem is, he had injury issues in college and has had more as a pro.

    Look at his plays. He's a highlight reel. When healthy. Which is unfortunately rare.

    Here's hoping for the best.

    And that Goodson or Powell is more than a COP back.

    Dude! Hope you sober up before Mother's Day

    I love the moves to, but 'potent'? Let's strive for 'competent' first.

    Its all about the OL. If they open the holes, these two will be okay.

    I'm really only concerned about two things with these guys.

    1: Will Ivory be able to stay healthy?
    2: Since these guys were used marginally, will they be able to produce while carrying the load?

    Well perhaps they will rotate three backs so none of them will get over worked. Who knows--I'm more worried with the passing attack, or lack of.

    Seventh-round FB Tommy Bohanon enjoyed another good day catching the ball out of the backfield. That skill will be useful in Marty Mornhinweg's West Coast system

    The RB analysis seems promising but will not get us far if they haven't fixed the O-Line issues

    I still think we should sign Brandon Moore. Colon is insanely injury prone and Winters is an unproven commodity so far.
