    Yeah but a 3.3 power back is done in the NFL as a starter.

    Reading all these pro Turner comments makes me think of how the rest of the league still believes Griffin is elite.

    Yes let's isolate one stat and use it to prove he isn't done, brilliant. He has three years of more than 300 carries and turned not the dreaded 30 but 31. Not to mention his ypc dropped almost a full yard to a pedestrian 3.6. ATL just cut him without a feature back on it's roster, I'm pretty sure they can see the writing on the wall.

    I like Turner, but that doesn't mean i want him here. I want Lattimore in the 4th or 5th round. I know about the injuries, but I'd almost use the comp 3rd we will probably get on him, he's going to be a very good back for some team.

    4 or 5 yes no way would I use a third and I love Lattimore but he is a huge injury risk.

    Listen I watched plenty of Falcon games last season, guy doesn't get ran over I have no idea what game you saw.

    and no, they were not from one inch out,

    REGARDLESS

    those < 1 yard scores are EXACTLY what we want. That argument that he is only getting scores from inches out is stupid. I WANT that guy that can get those inches on 3rd and short/goal. You are only making points for me.

    Oh I don't want him as a starter. I'd just rather fill this position in FA that the draft.

    i agree. splitting carries and a cheap contract would be really good.

    Ooooh one stat here's a cookie.

    When the Falcons stop giving you the ball on short yardage plays, they have very little faith in you. He sucked last year, had 2 good games last year where he played well all around. The rest of his games that he had highish yards he ripped off one big run.

    Having watched most Falcons game because of my region, he's not the same as 2 years ago and the weak link on their offense. If they had a better option than Rodgers he would've lost his job half way through the season. Turner isn't even worth splitting carries with CJ, goal line? Maybe.
