That's fine, too.
yes i think we need 2 strong RB's
The only two top 10 rushing teams left in the playoffs are the Chargers and the Giiants. The Giant's victory was due to their passing game, our inability to stop it at critical moments, and the pressure they applied to Romo down the stretch. San Diego won because Philip Rivers threw for 3 TDs and because their pass defense stepped up when it needed to.
Our running game is adequate event though we could use another back to platoon with MBIII. Our secondary, on the other hand, is a glaring weakness.
San diego has 2 good RB and a 3rd that's decent. Gaints had 4 decent RB's. Even though this is a pass happy league you still need to be able to run when it matters. We didn't do that thus the loss to the giants. Two strong RB's means One compliments MB3 and the other will become his replacement. We also have weakness in CB, DL, and ILB. All i believe will be addressed. What we learned from the playoffs is MB3 can't carry the load and is better suited as a short yardage back and not a starter. If he ran the ball 35 times in a game he would probably die.
Our secondary will get better if we can get a rookie that could come in and start right away. Pushing Henry to the 3rd CB and Reeves back to the 4th CB spot.
