    so 2 starts into his rookie year, we're ready to pass on him.

    i hate the IGS with the white hot passion of a thousand dying suns.

    Yeah you should because IT IS ONLY TWO GAMES. Stop with this nonsense. Add that he's running behind a line that doesn't open up holes for any our running backs.

    Not ready to pass on him, but I will be watching him closer than I thought I would to see if I'm right- not to say I told you so- but because my admittedly untrained eye tells me he doesn't quite look the part of an NFL starting RB and hope I'm wrong?

    Any running back drafted or undrafted is going to be a productive player, that's just the way it goes now........I would love to see us get Bishop Sankey next april, even in the first round.

    Randle was getting tackled at or behind the line of scrimmage by DB's last Sunday. Collinsworth mentioned it all game.

    Well take my order first sir!

    One decent 4th Round RB please. With a side order of moderate pass protection skills.

    Nah not all are productive, but finding one late has become easier as long as you have a good team around him.

    I believe that what most don't see about RBs is you can tell pretty quickly if they are going to be any good, and hoping a RB develops over time is a waste of time.

    Randle is exactly what he was projected to be. Lacks any bust, not particularly fast or elusive. It was said on draft day he was poor-mans Murray. What was frustrating about it Dallas had pressing needs along DL and Dallas looked that situation in the face and decided to take slow running back who would never be more than a back-up. Dallas had good draft but they really dropped the ball on that.

    Who was the last honest-to-goodness dangerous running back who could make runs that change the game? I would say Felix in his second year, when we went to the playoffs, and he was breaking off long runs each game. Then my impression is we wanted him to bulk up so he wouldn't get injured or fumble. He lost his elusiveness and speed.

    We don't value the right things in running backs.

    Honestly Zac Stacy is the late round RB I wanted or Mike Gillislee.

    Im not saying that just because Stacy had 135 yards against a very good Seattle defense. Doing amateur pre draft scouting, he looked the part of an all around back. Strong and physical. Randle looks weak, and not fast nor quick.

    Actually, he'll get you 2.5 yards, since that was his average. No, he won't do.

    Yeah, you don't like to judge after two games, but you would also like to see something to give you a little hope. But you can say the same about Tanner and Dunbar. They are disappointing.

    I must have watched a different game. Early on they consistently ran a run blitz on second down and we consistently ran the ball on second down not sure why they didn't try to take advantage of that. They were selling out to stop the run. On his longer runs and the screen pass he showed good ability to find the hole and get the most out of the run. On the plays he got stopped I counted two or three guys around him. The same defensive front that Romo said reminded him of the Vikings in the playoffs were getting penetration on running plays too.

    Randle has poor vision - he is not the answer.

    Yeah to me he seems to be quite fine, has a little more wiggle to him than Murray. Get him past the line and I think he could do some damage...he's kind of a slashing type runner. I don't think he has had a hell of a lot to work with quite honestly.
