    So know it looks like we have a bit of competition behind Johnson and Greene with the running game.Haven't seen enough of both these players to know who would be better.Parmele averaged 3.6 and 143 yards on 40 carries while Battle averaged 3.3 and 311 yards on 95 carries.

    Paramele had some nice runs against Houston and our team. After watching some of Battle's highlights i see that he has potential.....

    I remember picking up Battle off the waiver wire for Titan Cup the week he hung two TDs on the Titans last season. He didn't do much after.

    It was 2011 when Battle saw the most action... because of Jamaal Charles' ACL.

    I think I prefer him over Parmele, but I won't complain either way.

    Same here i think Battle would be a great third option behind CJ and Greene.

    Our RB coach asked for us to sign Parmele, correct? It will be an interesting battle of Reynaud, Parmele, Battle, and Alexander for the final RB spot.

    Whaaaat? Battle is NOT in ANY way better than Parmele.

    Parmele has waay more upside to him than battle does. I actually dont even know how Battle is still in the league.
