    46 Carries in 2 games? that's quite high actually....this is a passing league remember...it's rare for RB's to get 20+ carries a game nowadays.

    I have to agree....the attack on our Ambassador in Bengahzi is much more likely to cause something like WWIII (but not with Obama in office so whatever)

    He had every opportunity this season. They gave him more snaps and carries than any other RB. He was 5th best on this team.

    And Ryan Grant was NOT cut. We had BJ who was a top player at the time and a full backfield. He wasn't going to get any carries for us so we got what we could for him.

    It won't. It wasn't the Libyan government who attacked us. As a matter of fact, Libyan soldiers were fighting with our guys to put down the attack. I'm much more concerned with the conditions in Egypt than Libya. There is a fundamentalist movement in Egypt that could spell disaster. Our naive Prez hasn't helped that situation. They were emboldened by his rediculous apology speech in Cairo in 2009.

    Muslim Brotherhood (in Egypt) you mean right?

    I agree, also I know it wasn't the Libyan Government but it still shows that their government doesn't have the same ideal's as a large enough portion of it's populace, it's only a matter of time before Libya has an "islamic spring" and another dangerous group succeeds at rising into power.

    Also in the article I read about the Libyan Ambassador I also read that there was also an attack on the Tunisian ambassador in the past, it's only a matter of time until he's attacked now as well.

    what are we doing to prevent this...more talking?

    At the time I didn't think the grant cut was a big deal I agree with you, I was just bringing up an example of a time where we let go of a productive player, grant would have helped our team the year we traded him away more then whatever we got for the what (4th RND?) pick we got.

    Also Ware on his 46 carries last year....he was pretty much exactly the same as Bradshaw and Jacobs....they all averaged between 3.5-4.0 YPC

    Youre likely right. but it doesnt change my point that Dezz would not be calling for Bradshaw's head.....
    "it's the bad O-line!! You can't judge him on 2 games!! Fix the line!! and then fire Perry Fewell!!! He's somehow responsible for this anyway!!!"

    that's how it would go.....we know Dezz

    Bottom line is that Bradshaw has proven himself. He's been very productive and was an important part of our 2 SB wins. Ware had never proved himself and the clock finally ran out. He was here a long time without doing a thing. I'd say he got more than a fair shake.

    He was stuck behind two players that the coaching staff trusted to get the job done, so yes you are right, he never proved himself, but it's not like he had the opportunity to do so either....

    I'm not annoyed or upset that we let him go, we drafted Wilson...Wilson "looks" really good so far..(far better then Bradshaw imho) so yeah we didn't really have room for him, that said If "I" was starting a team today and my only two options at RB were AB or DJ Ware I'd still take Ware....from what I've seen.
