    It seems like we can't hit on a RB. Murray is good, but injury prone.
    This Mike James for the Bucs (6th round pick out of Miami) looks a lot better than Randle.

    We should have traded for Chris Ivory of the Saints. I really think we need a short, quick guy who can run <4.5 40.

    Hard to say how good our RBs are. We don't use them.

    Honestly, on the list of issues, this doesnt crack the top 10 IMO.

    Isn't Dunbar a short, under 4.5 40 RB? He had fumbling problems early on but I feel like they have been corrected.

    Murray is a very good rb. Was top 5 before the injury and before we changed our horrible offensive philosophy.

    Then why don't they actually, you know, utilize him creatively.

    I thought they were going to use him like the Saints use asp roles, but that hasn't happened.

    Thats because my list starts with GM, which unless that changes nothing else will.

    Murray is the best tailback this team has had since Emmitt. That might not be saying much, but the guy produces. Its up to the coaches to give him the chance to prove himself.

    RB before guard? If you can't block it doesn't matter who you have in the backfield.

    Before I look at running back I have to go defensive end, defensive tackle, guard and safety before I even look at a running back. I wouldn't even look at linebacker until after that.

    I've seen holes , a good back should be able to make at least one guy miss . Murray is decent but he can't break tackles or make anyone miss . I've seen great backs make OL great . Nate , tuenui, stepnowski were a bunch of nobody's until emmitt came along .

    Hahaha "before the injury"... you'll have to be more specific.

    Top 5? He's not even top 5 in the NFC. Peterson, McCoy, Morris, Forte, Gore, and Lynch are all clearly better.

    Before his injury he was top 5 in rushing yards. No I am not kidding. I was talking about yardage at the point before his injury, so I remain correct.
