    Scout’s Notebook: Interesting Thoughts At Running Back Spot

    ....As much as we want to believe that there is a battle for this third running back job, it sounds like Lance Dunbar or Ed Wesley is going to have to have the camp of their young careers to take the job away from Phillip Tanner. The front office loves the way that Tanner goes about his job and what he brings to the roster on a daily basis. In their eyes, he is a complete back. The things I really respect about Tanner’s game is his ability to pass protect. We all know that he can run the football and he catches the ball well but the mark of a third down back is his ability to do the dirty work. As important as Scandrick is to playing nickel corner, your third down back needs to be that same type of player that is a difference maker and Phillip Tanner has that type of ability to be a difference maker.

    I said it before if Tanner plays like they think he can and the young guy lights it up Felix could be the odd man out since he can not stay healthy and has not stayed healthy. This is not about salary cap but about him always being hurt

    Dallas would be smart to at least stash a 4th RB on the ps, given how things went in the last 6 games last year.
