    Not sounding promising?
    Place your bet on when Murray returns to the lineup.

    I am thinking he is done for the year based upon recent reports.

    I think he is done. If he doesn't play Sunday and they lose, he is done for sure, playoffs are officially done with one more loss.


    Injuries and OL have wrecked this year.....always next year I guess.

    Might as well go ahead and put him on IR because we aren't going to win out.

    He might chip a nail and have to rehab it for 6 months, so I say he doesn't play.

    if he is indeed done for the year then maybe we need to look at other options at running back, maybe drafting one as high as the 2nd

    Done for the year? why has there been optimism for him to play the last 6 weeks? Am I missing something????? So many questions.

    We need to even if he isn't. Round doesn't matter to me though. last night Philly had a UDFA kid gaining a lot of yards. He just needs to hang onto the ball.

    But Murray isn't done.

    Record should have nothing to do with it. Guys need to play to develop

    We need another RB regardless if Murray is done for the year or not. 2nd round sounds high to me.

    I'd start with looking at a back from Tennessee.

    Seems they're turning out some good ones lately.

    There's quite a few good backs in the draft. We need to get one to split time w/ Murray. I'd prefer one with speed/versatility because we don't really have a lot of that. Someone that defenses need to account for on 3rd down.

    I hope he's not done yet, but it's not looking good so far.

    They need to go find a bigger power back with speed like you find in the SEC; Murray has been hurt all through college and in both NFL years!

    Whatever you want to invest in a RB take about 70% and invest it in the o-line (unless you are already thinking late round pick)...with a quality o-line you can get very serviceable RBs, and then once the o-line is solved, go invest a bit more into the RB. That's how I'd approach it.

    Last year they tried to get Cyrus Grey in the 6th I think....just find some guy like that that can pass block, is a determined runner, smart, and reasonable athleticism. Its that last aspect that vaults players up the board, but you can do just fine with a 4.5 RB as opposed to a 4.3. Would like 4.3, but would take a big nasty linemen 7 days a week instead.

    A good line makes average skill players outstanding production players, an average line can be made to look good with HOF elite skill players, but a poor o-line sucks for everyone all around - RBs, WRs, TEs, and of course pinata QBs.

    I'd like to think Murray is a fluke thing given his track record at Oklahoma. Felix unfortunatley is not.

    The real question is...

    Does it really matter?

    there you go

    a fully healthy murray gets 12 touches a game

    a less than healthy murray gets 3 touches and maybe 2 swing passes

    and we'll be out of the playoff picture anyway

    OMG!!! Here you go again! of course it matters, he's our starter and better then all the other RB's we have. You should really stop watching and move on to another sport. Obviously you've QUIT, thank goodness our team hasn't.

    Shannahan at Denver showed that as long as you had a good O line finding a back that can get you 1000 yards a season is not hard and does not need high picks
