    xpmar9x isn't devaluing the positions, he's saying its dumb to use a high pick on a position thats plentiful. And I agree.

    RB is obviously a vital position to get production from, but that doesn't' mean they're worth 1st round picks. RB is the easiest position to learn on offense, any 4th rounder could come in and learn the plays and contribute early.

    yeah. he's still pretty terrible. I had the misfortune of seeing him live in person quite a few times. he sucks a big 1.

    and your son could truck Michael griffin. he's a rag doll.

    He is devaluing any position that is not directly involved in the passing game, QB, WR edge pass rusher and LT.

    He objected to us drafting a guard with the 10th pick but was all for us drafting a DT. Well who blocks the DTs?

    Most teams seem to be approaching the RB positon with 2-3 more specialized guys rather than trying to draft that one stud guy.

    The colts could have done this by signing Danny Woodhead and Shonn Greene.

    According to Marhsall Faulk the all around back is becoming a thing of the past because so many college teams are using spread offenses and offenses that don't require a RB to be a power runner and a good receiver both.

    He thinks the heavy duty workhorse back is becoming more rare.

    sad but true..... we even went this way when we had cj and fatty lendale white. 2 backs are better than one, it gives rest to the home run threat and the bigger back can get the tough yards, more balanced attack!

    Being in the AFC North usually means you've got six games against top run defenses.

    If the Browns had any kind of a passing threat, Richardson might have done better. I think he'll be a lot more productive in Indy.

    unfortunately for us I think he is a great fit for Indy. The Browns have no threat no whatsoever and I know they are focused on the future but I do question their philosophy here for trying to get pics in the draft which we all know is a huge gamble. I don't think it works and they stay in the gutter like the Jags for years

    I think the Colts did just that with Trent Richardson, Ahmad Bradshaw and Donald Brown.

    I thought they got rid of Donald brown. he is pure garbage.

    Richardson is a great pickup for the colts, IMO. My dad is a Colts season ticket holder, he was pretty excited when I told him the news last night.

    Insert name here of any free agent running back would be a better running back than DB.
