    Still looking forward to seeing what McCluster can do, I gotta watch some of Sankey's tapes, Sounds like he's a bulldozer.

    Not a bulldozer, just doesn't go down with ease like our former RB.

    Dude is shifty and has an extra gear when he hits the second level.

    Probably the best hands at RB we have ever had.

    He'll be alright.

    I'm sure since we will be doing a RB by committee, he will get us his fair share.

    I Hope Andrews makes the squad. Greene is 28 coming off of 2 knee surgeries and was a plodder to begin with and Jackie Battle runs like a bull in a china shop which is usually a god thing but he does it with his head down and therefore has zero vision.

    McCluster is no RB. He is a WR who lines up in the backfield. He will not get many carries.

    Totally agree on Andrews. His measurables are very deceiving; tape says he's a fluid athlete that plays faster than the 40 time implies. He's also a thumper. The Greene injury, while unfortunate (I like Greene) does make me feel a lot better about our decision to take a RB so early though I wonder why they didn't go with a guy like Hyde or Hill knowing they're potentially losing a power back in Greene. Either way, I like Sankey, let's hope dude lights it up.

    I can't stand Greene.

    With that said, I don't think this surgery necessarily means much.

    You guys are putting WAY too much emphasis on a position that's easy to plug-n-play.

    Greene would have been fine if healthy.

    lol @ Greene being a bad signing, then saying "should have signed Moreno!"... wtf??

    You guys better hope Greene is ok.

    You've overrating Sankey like no other right now. Setting kid up to fail.

    green will be fighting for a spot ..cant make the club in the tub ...

    we have cap room if needed to go get a F/A ...

    But look at the teams that have running backs and drafted more Rb i can see some cuts ...

    we can pick a few if needed when time comes ...
