    DMC is a great pickup, but NOT to carry the rock...He is a guy to spread around and get open in the short game. Greene if healthy will be solid, but not your future and most likely not your starter, rather your change of pace back....That leaves Battle....He won't be a Titan come regular season. They need a guy to carry the rock and often, simply put. They will get one this year, they have been very open about that, but the question is WHEN?!

    He got tons of handoffs in 2011 since Charles was down, and that's the year he had 32 yards.

    Last 2 years, longest run 19 yards... Oh and his average is 3.75ypc for these last 2 years. At no point in his career has he been better than CJ running the ball, please don't even try that route. We really don't want to go down that path.

    My favorite RB in this draft is the guy we sign off the waiver wire when the cuts are in.

    How hard is it replacing 3.9 yards a carry? Battle did that.

    Greene had over a thousand yards in 2011 and 2012. Why shouldn't he be able to carry the ball 250 times again this year?

    We can wonder what catastrophe will occur if Greene goes down early but fewer people seem to have any problem with what happens of Locker goes down.

    Never said better. Said as good. In 2011 his ypc was 4.5. The ypc was low for last two years but there were very few carries. Statistically invalid. And he is a much better receiver thank CJ1K.
