    I have lost all belief that Thigpen can be a player. Gillislie is average as hell. Is it that hard to find a 5'10", 210lb back with speed, power, and vision??

    And he dropped the one he was given a chance on recently. You don't get a lot of second chances in the NFL...

    He has shown me nothing that makes me consider him a threat. He used to be be a better returner than Bess, but I can't even say that anymore...

    We had a guy named Kory Sheets a couple years ago that showed some promise. He'll be a free agent in Feb. (after showing what he could actually do in the CFL the past 2 years). Don't think he's an every down guy, but he has good power, good hands and a pretty good burst too. Biggest issue is that he's 28.

    I saw terrible vision by our RBs last week. There were a lot of places on many plays for our RBs to go and they too often run to darkness vs daylight.

    Where the hell is Gillislee? didn't we draft him in like the 5th? this is what you draft a player in that position for situations like this. I do think this draft class will eventually be good, but god, this might be the most least productive first year draft ever.

    We need a back with a nasty streak with muscle mass. even the Jets have that in both there backs, not elite but heavy hitters that don't go down on first contact.

    Abortion? I can't agree with that. Perhaps abhorrent.

    Probably not, considering Devon Bess starting did not stop him fielding punts.


    There is nothing more dangerous in team sports, then a team that refuses to quit, is united as one, and whose confidence is so high, they believe they can play with anyone, anywhere, anytime.
