    White is a proven back who will only get better. He can drive people out of his way and fall forward so much better than most backs (those are his strengths). Henry is developing, and I think as soon as he can get his mind straight and the new coach works with him (he worked with Portis), he will be a solid back. I think everyone is overreacting to our running back situation. Worry about something useful, like our wide recievers or our underachieving, inconsistant quarterback.

    Who is this guy White you refer to? I know it is not Lendale cause he has not proven anything yet. RB is not our biggest weakness but at the same time it is not a strength by any means. We need a real runningback that can get some tough yards and also breakway when he gets into the open, right now we don't
    have that.

    LW has proven to be very average. A running team like our can obviously use an upgrade at RB. Now maybe he can lose some weight and be better himself, or maybe Henry can be the man. I don't have strong confidence in either of those things happening.

    LW will be good.
    Chris Henry better be good because we passed on STEVE SMITH (who has a superbowl ring) to get him.

    Yes, he does fall forward a lot, the only problem is that he isn't five yards tall, and that he falls after about 1 yard.

    I've got no problem with the team drafting a rb at #24. I would rather draft a rb that fell unexpectedly to us, than reach for a DE that might not be good.

    White might get suspended for some time this year. Henry might take the wrong supplement again. And neither one of them is likely to lead the league in rushing this year. We've still got a strong offensive line and a young Qb, we should have a dominant running game to help

    White has made drafting a RB an easy decision right now. He is not mature enough to depend on him as a starter. He has proven this by coming in out of shape and now pulling this crap.

    With all the needs this team has bone head players can turn a strength into a sudden weakness. I hope Reinfeldt is a GM that puts more stock into a players personality and less on his physical talent. Hopefully it will keep guys like Pacman and Lendale out of the clubhouse.

    Why would White be suspended? Did I miss something?

    arrested in Denver. I highly doubt he gets suspended but it doesn't look good with all the problems we had with Pacman. He has become a high risk player when you factor in his problems with maintaining his weight and now legal issues.

    Lendale white did a solid job for us and basically put up the same numbers a young, note that young eddie george would have had with the same number of carries.

    You know who would be a nice change of pace back for us? Brian wesbrook! Or at least a super quick 4rd down back like kevin faulk. Problem is that both those guys ran 4.57 40s at their respective combines which proves that this change of pace conceot is dumb.


    The idea of drafting a guy like slaton later on makes more sense to me.
