    Go even further back; Marion Barber, Julius Jones, Jamar Martin, Michael Wiley, etc...

    Unfair to put Barber on that list. He became ineffective because of the beating he took. He was a good player prior to wearing down.

    Considering his role and how he was used, he was a very good player from 2005-09. He was a first down machine and goal line beast when he was at his best. Think this team couldn't use Barber in his prime? I do.

    It would be nonsense to dump him. I would look to add some dependable help though. I like Montee Ball in rounds 3-4.

    I lol'd for some odd reason.

    But really, it's way too early to ditch Murray.

    Pretty pathetic, but I guess maybe thats how new generations of fans operate.

    with Murray running in the same hard hitting style might not be a bad idea to get another back and make it rbbc instead of trying to force one back to be a workhorse

    edit:but dont think we should give up on Murray yet

    I'm not saying he needs to be dumped, but the way he runs — Head First — scares me to death.

    I get he's trying to be physical, but leading with the noggin all the time doesn't seem like a sound running style.

    Well you have to ask yourself, if we get rid of a bunch of guys, is this team going to be any different.

    Tony, Dez, Mo, Carr, Lee, Carter, Tyron, Ware

    If you get rid of everybody but them, are we worse than we are now?

    I personally don't think so.

    Didn't we just spend a 3rd round pick on him 19 months ago? That simply makes zero sense.

    :laugh2: I would have something to say here but I just can't say it better constructively.

    I agree about RB by committee. There was this tendency to try and run Murray 25 times a game plus 5 receptions a game back in his hot streak in 2011. It hadn't been an issue in 2012 because we couldn't really get the running game going this year for the most part. We do need to use the other RBs more even when Murray is 100% to conserve him for the season.

    I also would say that if he comes back and plays very well we should resist the temptation to ever give him a mega-deal. It makes more sense to bring in a cheaper vet or draft a new guy because Murray isn't a special RB, just a good one with some durability problems.
