    But the thread is on Harris. He's not Chubb or Taylor. Do you find it accurate? Anyone who agree with me can add to the points made, and those who disagree with me can say he's good and explain why.
    You don't make the rules. I can answer anyway I choose. We have rampant racists on this board and you are coming at me. Go F yourself, Crash.

    But we drafted Edmunds.

    Chubb is very good though. Among the best RBs in the league IMO. That's why I was surprised in the off season when several on here were saying they think Harris is the best back in the division. I don't think Najee is bad...I think he's good. But Chubb is very good...maybe even elite.

    It is, no doubt in my mind.

    He's as phony as his name JB died in 2002.

Yeah if he's got a path to the 2nd level ( very good blocking ) he is above average as a power runner. A poor outside runner though and a far from dangerous pass cacher. That is obvious. He is what he and can not create plays for himself. There are several backs in football I'd take owner him including all three starters in the division for openers. At least he is not a drain on the cap. We are going to need another back soon. Like next year unless Warren maintain his average per rush when he gets more carries.

    While the focus is on the we need to QB to produce, I'd also say we need our back to produce.

    The OL isn'y bad on every play.
    1) the OL isn't as bad as everyone thinks... but the passing game isn't doing them any favors. You know how in basketball, the thread of a 3 pointer loosens up the defense? but also having a big man makes the defense pack in a make room for open 3's? The same is true in football. The first half was a good example - Mitch connected on a few passes beyond 10 yards, not by accident, but it seemed to be intentional by him or the OC (unsure who) but it caused the defense to loosen up, leading to a solid half by Najee. But in the 2nd half, he had a lot fewer of those connections and the run game struggled. I'm not saying the OL is "good", but play calling can make them look better.

    2) I'm still disappointed that the team let Conner go. Especially given that Kenyan Drake's 1-year contract was only about $700k less than Conner's 1 year contract. This move seemed like a decision to not have the last guy here so there wouldn't be any conflict over who to start

    3) IF the team thinks of Najee as the "thunder" in a Thunder&Lightening tandem, this could be good. But that means that in the upcoming draft, they have to put a premium on getting a guy with speed, vision and "wiggle", but doesn't quite have the size to carry the ball 25 times in the NFL. I don't know if you are old enough to get this reference, but: Najee's the Alstott, now go find a Warrick Dunn...

    I don't think this poster is Crash. I could be wrong, but I do have him as friend on both Facebook and on Twitter. Yes, Crash has strong opinions but he truly is a great guy. I like this Joel Buchsbaum as well.
