No!! He kills offenses
He needs to go regardless what the savings is.
If our new coach pushes to keep him then I'm ok with that. If they want us to go in a different direction I'm also ok with that.
The ONLY way I'd have Johnson back next year without being pissed about it is if he takes the paycut, and also has to spell Greene.
Shonn Greene can get you your constant 3-4 yards, so that when Johnson comes in fresh off the bench, he can gouge defenses for big gains. That was the winning recipe for Johnson in 2008 when this team was last good. So thats my plan if anyone cared, and i think it's a good plan.
C.J. can come back for $4M/yr instead of $8M because thats what guys like him are worth these days on the market, and if he's not game for that then bye bye C.J.
My wife who watches football casually has even noticed CJ falling after first contact she laughs Everytime he touches the ball and gets taken down by a light tap. So no unless he takes a paycut or they design an offense that in no way shape or form has him running anywhere near the middle then cut him.
Well he isn't getting a pay cut, he said that. And Tommy smith wants to keep him, he indirectly said that. A big part of the coaching search will find someone who can motivate and get the best out of CJ. He is too good when motivated to cut. He wasn't the last 2 years. Maybe someone else can, it's worth the gamble.
Whats wrong with mid-round RB's?
all had more rushing yards than CJ.
Morris is only going In his 3rd season, look at Cjs first 3 seasons. And Murray is decent if he can stay healthy but still he isn't that franchise rb.
Well if we're looking for a "franchise RB" we're going about it all wrong.
Someone else already addressed that. It's a rarity to hit on one and finding one is in no way as easy as you make it seem.
Im not looking for us to hit gold, just find a serviceable RB to pair with Greene. I only pointed out the mid-round RB's with 1000-yards because those are obvious guys we'd all take over CJ today. But theres dozens of names I could add to that list who are good RB's.
You use, abuse, then discard RB's nowadays. Why use a top pick on one?
Separate names with a comma.
