  • RB situation (or lack thereof)

    Okay so maybe you might have realized that T.J. Duckett signed with the Seahawks yesterday... Our RB situation consists of two injured running backs none of which I have any confidence in. We need to find a solution. What do we do?

    My personal idea is to bypass Julius Jones unless you plan on releasing/trading KJ. I've never been a fan of Julius but a healthy Julius is still an upgrade over a gimpy/injured KJ or the might as well be amputated legs of Brian Calhoun.

    So if a gun was pointed to my head the RB I would take in the draft would be Ray Rice. He's not going to be a barn burner but all of the barn burners outside of the top 3 do not have the vision or ability to carry the load that Rice has. The problem I forsee with acquiring Rice is that we might have to do our typical second round pick and pick him before he would get picked by another team.

    As important as solidifing some holes on the oline/dline/lb is we actually do need a rb that is not oh I don't know, Aveion Cason, to start the season.

    Is this just me worrying too much because I know Millen can't and won't ever find a Ryan Grant or a Ahmad Bradshaw or is this really just one hell of a quagmire?

    I think recent success with Late Round/Undrafted RB's will (or at least, it should) lead us to pass on one early in the draft.

      I was thinking the same thing.

      Year after year, a starting RB goes down and a late pick/unknown player steps up and performs well. I'd like to look for on in round 3-4 and sign a FA RB.

        If Derrick Harvey and Ryan Clady are off the board I'd like to see us go with Rashard Mendenhall. If Clady, Harvey, and Mendenhall are off the board then... ****!!!

          I'm actually I big fan of Brian Calhoun. Well, I still feel we need anohter RB, Calhoun has averaged over 4 ypc when hes gotten the ball, which i know is rare, but I'd like to see him get the ball and see what he can do

            I doubt Clady would be there with Chicago picking in front of you.

                I agree I'd love to see Mendenhall in a Lions uni!

                  Addict doesn't want to see Mendenhall in the uni... he wants to see him without the uni.

                  There's a big difference (one involves a parade).

                          Haha. Haha... that's hilarious.

                          I read it the first time... "rainin?"... then, I used my skills of observation and noticed the bold text. Yes... I'm observant. Almost a professional.

                          Never been to Amster***... nice place?
