Lawfirm was less than impressive for the WHOLE year and eventually you have to find a complement/future RB for the team. The coaching staff has pretty much given up on Bernard Scott it seems.
But why waste a first round pick on such an unimportant position that can so easily be filled by later-round picks and/or free agents?
You can win a Super Bowl with Benjarvus Green Ellis as your RB. Yes you can. And one of the reasons you can do it with BJGE is because you spent a first round pick on a stud DE/DT/OT/CB instead of on a RB, and your team is that much better for it.
