    He is who we thought he was. A change of pace back. Hostile I am now behind your plan of Richardson in the 1st.

    I think considering that he has a bum shoulder, he's doing ok. I do think we need a new lead back though. Not sure how much the offensive line that can get a push from the 1 has to do with it though.

    I hope you are wrong, however, I am starting to wonder if Felix is ultimately best suited for an over-sized 3rd down/utility back. I haven't seen anything in his game to make me think he is a an every down that can be consistently counted on for yardage when needed.

    The homers will point to the Offensive Line.... I say the guy has been around for 4 years now and as the previous posted said... he is what he is at this point. Don't expect a lot more.

    Romo is the only weak player on the team. Pointless thread :cool:

    All kidding aside I would love Richardson, but an O-linemen or a DB is what makes more sense too me.

    Richardson isn't the answer.

    Doesn't matter who the back is if we don't run block better or show more commitment to the running game.

    I'd see what Murray can do before I'd spend a first rounder on another RB.

    If we were a run-first team, I'd say okay. But we're a passing team. Give us a better O-Line, and we automatically become better in the running game. I love Richardson, but I'd be extremely disappointed if we took a RB in the first round.

    Id like to see what he could do if we'd RUN THE DAMN BALL MORE THAN A HANDFUL OF TIMES A GAME.

    I don't think any RB in the league besides Peterson could beast behind our Oline.

    I actually like the way Felix is playing. He is a bull (suprisingly).

    Maybe but not in the round.


    This says a lot about what you guys subliminaly think about Murray also.


    We can't keep using premium picks on tailbacks unless a Peterson or McFadden fall in our laps.

    I like Richardson but he's stuck in 3rd gear and doesn't have much wiggle. Pass.

    I don't believe Trent Richardson is the next great back by any means. His game compares favorably to Marshawn Lynch, which is to say he can be a good back at the next level, but I don't see an Adrian Peterson type back.

    big difference is being a power back in the pac 10 and being a power back with speed in the SEC.

    Lynch ran a 4.46 at the Combine. They're the same style runners; powerful, not too much wiggle outside of choppy cutbacks, good effort guys. Not to mention they are nearly identical in size and body types.

    Richardson is a 4.37 speed RB. Richardson is alot better back. Has alot better vision and can catch the ball much better.

    If he runs a 4.37 I take back everything I said. Draft the guy.

    But he isn't an explosive players at all.


    Maybe you'll get a 2007 type MB3 performance consistently out of the guy for a few years.
