    I'm sure the FO felt the same way about Ringer and Harper. I don't even know how they were even successful in college. Harper mostly.

    Im expecting some games that Greene actually gets the same number of carries as CJ if not more. I think he'll be used every time we're inside the 10, when it's 2nd or 3rd and 4 or less, and other times randomly.

    lendale was a decent spell back for us until he was traded then it went downhill...harper was a big disappointment as i talked him up after watching him in college too, ringer was damned by injuries but when given the shot didnt capitalize

    the dual half back sets i will wait till i see who we draft to say if we will see or not simply to the fact that if we draft a receiver who ends up starting i doubt you will see alot of 2 back sets as opposed to a 3 wr/te sets

    but its possible that you can teach some of them to improve quicker and end up actually better than some of the pros...

    Of course there is the possibility. Always. To me, look at the patriots. Their running backs never saw any real carries til they proved they could run block. Took a year. Most the time that's the case.

    Stephen Jackson just signed for 3 years 12 million in Atlanta..

    Honestly I would have rather had him than Shon Greene on near identical deals

    First off jus with an improved line and 2 te that can block CJ will be back to 1500 to 1600 yds a game...3 years ago when we still had a decent line and Bo Scaife not much of a blocker himself (idont read my info from some idiot who didnt even watch the game just highlights ) but better then sometimes not even get his hands on a defender Cook...And yes i watch the games i have nfl ticket and dvr...I actually watch the same play like 3 to 5 times for 1 player at a time to see what they did..Well on the line cause thats all u can really see...Yea im pretty sick every1 tells me to go into sports talk or join the titans...lol..But anyway im no expert but having holes for cj again will be hugh...not run into som1's back and then try to go outside and b told he's lookin for the homerun...i wouldnt be surprised to see even on a 3 and 2 like they did even with LW that CJ stays in and they run him up the middle with CJ like they use to for 4 to 6 yds a clip...Sometimes its better to leave the guy in and not run him out and tell the d that were definately runnin up the middle and give em time...But like i said way better oline with te's and keepin CJ fresh will be a site to see!
