BJ had his chance (which i didnt agree with in the first place). Tolbert and Bradshaw would be unbelievably great for this team. Im kinda surprised that nothing yet from Reese about bringing this guy in.

No, but the last thing I heard that Reese is real high on the speedy kid Scott and want to give him the opportunity to start so, don't be surprise if he decided to stay in house. I like the kid Scott that run a 4.3 we all seen what this kid can do so I'm just excited to see him get the chance to be a full time starter.

We really gonna throw the keys to an untested RB? Plus Scott and Bradshaw just isnt as dynamic as Tobert and Bradshaw. I have to admit I only see that scenario in the event they decide to utilize Hynoski alot more in short down conversions.

We will soon find out. Hillis off board as KC signed him. Bush and tolbert still out there

His chance to shine will only come if he learns to hold onto the football.

2 fumbles in 5 carries isnt gonna work(yes I know the stats only show 1, but another fumble was incorrectly ruled down and was unreviewable because of the whistle.)

Tolbert is a nice back - with good ability to catch the ball out of the backfield - not sure why you didn't like Jacobs - guy leaves with 56 career td's a 4.5 avg and almost 5,000 rush yards. They offered him 1.5 mill - not sure they will offer a 2nd RB much more. Hillis just signed for 3. While many fans see a need then plug in one of the better fa's thats not reese's style.

As far as scott its yet to be determined what the giants think of him. They gave him a couple plays mid way through the year and he committed coughlins ultimate no-no by fumbling. 4.3 speed is nice but speed ain't everything just ask every raider pick in the last 10 years, tim biakabatuka, herschel walker and many many others.

Don't be so sure Jacobs won't be back

I don't know how much the team has to offer to any of them, but I like Bush as my first choice, then Tolbert seems like a good replacement for Jacobs' spot. I would also be okay with drafting a player in the mid rounds... unless someone slips to us in the early rounds (a la Prince Amukamura).

No offense, but no...We haven't seen what Scott can do. We have hopes but thats about it. Running a fake punt for a TD in preseason doesn't qualify him as an automatic shoe in.

But that doesnt give you any chance of pace. Tolbert seems more of a thumper while Bradshaw/Scott are Bambis.

Bradshaw a Bambi?? Maybe I've been watching a different RB the past few years, I could've swore he was a guy the runs hard,tuff & doesn't go down easy.......he runs harder than Jacobs the past few seasons...

I bet Jacobs takes a cheap contract to comeback, is he the best runningback no but he's a leader and with some blocking will give us some big plays from time to time. </P>


I've got no problem with Scott I hope they work him in more sorta like 2009 with Jacobs, Ward &amp; Bradshaw</P>

Bambi? Bradshaw is pound for pound one of the hardest running Rb's in the league. </P>

we have limited cap space and our starting rb is a heck of a player so i don't see why we would sign a rb unless maybe bj back for cheap

It's funny because this whole thing is pure fan speculation and wishful thinking born from a throw-away comment by Tolbert.

He's in negotiations with the Chargers, and like Swimeasy said, we probably can't comfortably afford him.
