    I don't know where anybody gets the idea that the Cowboys think he is a 'franchise RB.' They haven't committed any big $$$ to him. He was named the starter after he earned the spot. And there has been gripes about his durability pretty much from day 1.

    We are likely not making such a splash with cap numbers but just google his career stats...

    He has lost 7 career fumbles in almost 3.5 years, does not sound like a problem.

    Thanks, I wasn't sure but for some reason i thought he did. I probably got him mixed up with another back.

    I personally don't think its smart to trade for any back right now. I would just wait till the draft and find good young talent.

    I'm with you. Tanner is a good 2nd or 3rd guy too. You don't just give up on your players. You call on them. And they step up.

    Fred Jackson just got hurt. Looks serious. Looks like they'll need CJ Spiller now.

    i think its a dumb trade, but since we're talking about it

    Adrian Peterson
    Mark Ingram
    Ben Tate
    CJ Spiller

    any would be an upgrade over murray (ingram might be slightly questionable here)

    not sure about trades, but we should be kicking the tires for a veteran rb still I think. Seemed like for half the game the Cowboys didn't trust having Randle run the ball. Would also be nice insurance if Murray is out for multiple games, again.

    If we do make a trade a Dlineman is a priority. We don't need a RB right now. We drafted someone to fill in for Murray; didn't draft to fill any of the four Dline spots.

    Ditto. He has a bad toe, but even when he's healthy, the Saints don't use him much. I think he's a grinder. He just needs to get better toes.

    Nothing gets a NFL journalist national attention like writing about the Dallas Cowboys.

    If a trade is made I believe it will be Ingram. He is young and was on the Cowboys draft board real high if I remember right. With Sproles and Thomas he may be expendable to the Saints. JMO

    If we are trading for a RB, it needs to be MJD for a 6th. I don't want to give up anything higher than a 5th rounder. we've done well drafting as of late, we need to keep building a young team with the draft.

    Could we please stop with the MJD thingy. With his contract it isn't happening.

    It's an example, the point is to not spend a high round draft pick on a temporary solution.
