[b]i don't understand why people think Lamont is go great.
to me, he goes down too easily, doesn't show great open field moves, and fumbles too much.
hopefully, i'm wrong, and just not seeing what the rest of you see. or maybe he just hasn't gotten enough work to show his true potential yet. but at this point, he's not a guy i have confidence in turning our entire ground game over to.[/b][/quote]
Let me express my feeling on the RB situation..If a Team
Drafts a Back with their 2nd pick they better Dam give him
a Chance to play!! 3rd round pick Martin got 368 tries as a
Rookie..Also keep in mind Football is a business..If you want
to keep the Machine running well you always look for optimum
performance for the lowest price! I'm starting to wonder if the
FO was thinking that they would deal Martin before they
gave him that crazy contract, then changed their mind..It
just makes no sense to draft a back with a second pick and
NEVER give him a Fair chance..If any of you Guys can tell me
of this ever happening anywhere please advise me.. <_<
And please don't say Leroy Kelly sat behind Jim Brown for
a few years he was a 8th rd pick!! <_< [/b][/quote]

Kevin Turner And yes "That Blair Thomas"LOL It was RB by
commitee that totaled around 1200+ Yds the Team was 10-6
made the playoffs..Then Martin took over in 95 and led the Team
to a 6-10 record!! :lol:
