    If we got Young and Williams, which would = SET AND MATCH, I wouldn't sweat any RB next year, Peterson included. His injuries bother me, besides.

    I would then only worry about BPA next year.

  3. ya he could be just another pacman which would really suck, because we dont have that offensive leadership to straighten him out

    I read in The Sporting News a few weeks ago the Titan were intrested in him. If he's there at the top of the second, we're going to find out just how intrested they really are.

    The article mentioned the Titans envisioning him as a "Eddie George" type back that could carry a load.

    He set the new definition for workhorse back. More than Earl Campbell even if you look at the stats.

    Not long ago, White was destined for Arizona, then he fell, and now he is in the pickings of the late 1st round.

    Which, in fact, is actually a blessing

    backs have their specialties. some are workhorses and others are playmakers. the exceptional ones are both.

    eddie was the perfect fit for this team. a grind-it-out runner who controlled the clock and wore down defenses. that is something we have sorely missed the past five years.

    with that said, i'm not a big fan of lendale. the reason eddie was the workhorse he was, was because of the way he took care of himself. he was one of, if not, the hardest worker on the team. he had a motivation and a drive that i don't see with lendale.
