    Short answer: no. Long answer: hellz no.

    We find ways to make CJ better, not ways to take CJ out of the game.

    I think taking CJ out of the game, would make him better and that is not a slam on CJ. Give him about 15 carries a game with another back who is capable of starting on his own. CJ still gets the majority of the snaps, but he will be more fresh and keep the defense honest.

    Lonnie Pryor in the 5th or Michael Dyer in the 7th.

    History tells me that we are going to draft a running back. He was banged up this year, but I kinda like Rex Burkhead.

    In all honesty though, we've gone this mid-round pick route several times and it just doesn't work out. I'd rather bring in a guy who can take 100 or so carries a season who's been in the league for a couple of years.

    I like Mike Goodson, Bernard Scott or Greg Jones.

    should have gotten Turner a few years ago.

    I just want a big RB that plays like a big RB too take those tough carries off of :cj:

    I like that.

    ...or do that AND take someone in the 7th like Marcus Coker and let them fight for the job.

    I'm going to be pissed if we end up with Ringer and Harper again.

    I was under the impression that Ringer will be lucky to see any NFL field again. Didn't he break his ankle/leg pretty good?

    Nah. It was a torn MCL that for some reason took a month to diagnose. He could have probably been back by now if we really needed him.

    I thought his elbow injury was a lot more serious. Didn't he almost lose his arm?
