does anyone feel we could go the Colt/NE style of getting an avg RB with how our passing game is now our main component?
the colts won their SB with RHodes, not Edge or their other guy. NE won theirs with K.Faulk but also had Marooney help get them there.
Im just throwing this out there, if we were to cut both bshaw and bj, and used the 10 mil on other aspects of the team, and signed a decent RB and drafted one, would our run game be worse than last season? would our offense be worse than last season?
seems to me, with eli, we dont need to place so much focus on the run game, esp. at 10 mil a year. dont get me wrong, i love both our rb's, but they either need to restructure, BOTH OF EM, or we cut one and restructure the other and draft one I guess.
I'd rather have 3 stud wr's and a stud TE than have 2 stud WR's and 2 overpaid RB
I think if we pass to setup the run, and use the run when teams go all out to defend the pass, we could be just as successful with Andre Brown, D.Ware, and D.Scott as we'd be with Jacobs and Bradshaw. And we'd save like 10 mil in cap room.
We only avg. like 3.2 ypc last season and the pass game and DL were enough to win us a SB...I also think Eli could handle more responsibilty, I mean he practically carried the offense all season. And even tho our run game sucked, we still had what, like 15-18 rushing td's between AB and BJ??
If we were to use the money allotted to BJ and AB, we could make Osi happy, resign MM, get a quality TE...
edit- we'd save 10 mil to the cap for this season, I would guess releasing them or trading them would clear up 20 mil easily bc we'd be off the hook of both their contracts...
