    Re: Joseph Addai anyone?

    [quote user="Martyr"]That guy couldnt run when Peyton was the qb[/quote]Not many could if your OL was bottom 10 in the league since 2008 in terms of run blocking.

    Personally, I feel our OL will be fine next year with a healthy Baas and Snee, a full year Boothe, a healthy competition between Beatty and Diehl and the competition winner at RT.

      It does make a good ompact on the subject like:




      Addai is our guy! []




      Unfotunately he's not the same guy he was a few years ago.




      No one remembers who came in second.

How about his blocking? If all of those are in place, then he is our third down back.

I think he can, he has really only had lingering type injuries, not like serious knee surgeries.

            Not to mention, he ran a lot of draws in Indy, that was their run game. He didn't often line up and run. One game of note he did that, was vs. NYG in 2010, and he succeeded. So draw your own conclusion.

            I think he comes cheap, I mean Ronnie Brown only went for 1 year 1 million last year. Danny Ware is making a million, and I think Addai could be a better draw runner, just as good a pass blocker and a better reciever for about the same price.

              it sounds like he'd just be the ware type rb in our rb by committee, doesn't seem like he's that much better than ware where it'd make sense to cut him and sign addai. we don't need that kind of role rb, we need a guy that could match jacobs production and what he did. addai doesn't strike me as that kind of back.

              i'd bet we draft a guy in one of the first three rounds...

                I think he can fill Jacobs' void and even start if Bradshaw gets hurt. I mean if there's a Lamar Miller or David Wilson in the second, they are enticing, but if there is also a solid OL guy in the second, I'm not so sure I wouldn't prefer the OL guy + a FA running back instead. Either way, the rich get richer in a sense.

                  yeah i see what ur saying. but, although miller really has only had one stand out year in college, I think he can transition to the nfl level pretty quickly and be a legitimate back.

                  but i wouldnt be opposed to taking a solid OL guy in the 2nd if Miller was there and just getting a FA RB...just don't know if Addai would be my choice.

                      well to be honest, I'd defer my judgement on the RB's to a guy like you. Your a better talent evaluator than me in most cases. I just don't know if I'm sold on Addai, or even Hillis really. but if you say either one of those guys could get it done I'd be all for it. But then again, if it was between Addai/Hillis and drafting Lamar Miller, I'd personally just rather Miller.
                      We'll see how FA is a month deep, if a guy like Bush is still available and in our price range, he could be a guy I think could come in and be a solid contributor. A lot of people are saying Tolbert, but I don't know, I just don't see it with him...

                        andre brown . . . not a single NFL team thought that he was good enough for their 53 man roster (including us) and you think that he is going to make an impact next year?????

                            Clearly a RB who has been on the decline from early in his career. I say, no.
