  • Torain

    Seems legit. Did a quick background check and it looks as though his injuries have really held him back, but he's got good size and talent. Could be a good signing, we might have at least 3 capable backs now, and can change up the pace

    I like him a lot..... dude is going to be good when we get close to the goal-line. He will fill AB2's role perfect.
    sigpicShould the Giants fire Gilbride....

        It remains to be seen if he can recapture his 2010 form, or anything approaching it. He really fell off a cliff last season.
        The Skins had a lot of patience for him but that eventually ran out.

          he runs too upright, its whats led to his injuries imo.
          iirc, his injuriies were all upper body, so thats a plus if u consider those acl/mcl's big deals.

          im excited to see him, think he could contribute. but i believe wilson is the better rb and needs more carries. i would hate if torrain jumped wilson already

            I'm not saying by any means that torain should spell bradshaw, I just like the signing as far as good depth goes, and maybe for 3rd and short or goal line

              Very hard running. A little injury and fumble-prone.

                Any idea why the 'skins didn't keep him as a back up? Just curious.

                  3.4 ypc. There was a game last season where he had more carries than rushing yards. He was not good.

                  The Skins had better backs on their roster so Torain sunk to the bottom of the depth chart, and eventually to free agency.

                    Most of us fans liked him while in DC, but he did have quite a few nagging injuries. His running style is unique but it works. I'd say the biggest thing is he is inconsistent. He'll have one game where he looks amazing, and the next he can't seem to find the hole.

                    As a 2nd or 3rd back, I wouldn't complain about him at all. Had a good nickname while with the skins too "All Torain Vehicle".

                        as our third back, it looks pretty good. when AB2 comes back, maybe we keep him as our 4th back? nah we'll probably still keep Scott

                          ironically its the unique running style that leads to his injuries imho. he has spurts where he's really impressive, but he runs too upright for the nfl. jacobs prob outweighs torrain by 50 lbs and he couldnt withstand the punishment from running too upright. he could end up being a quality power/goal line back tho

                              he might know some of the plays, but I think the playbook has drastically changed with the addition of rgIII and even Garcon. They havent had a young fast vertical threat like him in a while
