    Real real shame.

    ''One hope is that the team returns healthier. Rookie running back
    Alex Green[​IMG] was lost for the season to a knee injury on Sunday''

    I was so excited about this rookie and thought he had great potential, just a shame we wont see him till next year.

    This is terrible!!! I was really looking forward to seeing more of him and having a 3 man running game! :( Hope he heals up and see him next year.

    That is indeed a shame. Hope he gets better, because knee injuries are really painful. He'll be in my prayers.

    Cobb has a part in this indirectly. It happened when he decided to take the ball out of the end zone, one of many poor decisions he made yesterday.

    Knee injury and running backs are never a good combo. Hope he heels up and can play for us next season.

    I wonder if Dimitri Nance is available? The 49ers worked him out a couple of
    weeks ago, but I don't think they signed him. I also thought he did a decent job
    in the preseason and he knows the offense.

    Good thing we have two number one running backs.

    I wanted Green. I wanted the Hawaiian to be good, and brag about him to other teams, this sucks.

    I feel bad for Green, but running backs are hardly a necessity in our system. If anything, I think we'll replace him with another defensive end.

    Unfortunately, down here in Alabama I missed the beginning of the game because the Falcons/Lions game ran long. I did not see what happened.

    Been noticing that too, Cobb is a little "too reckless" at times... I get that he wants to be aggressive, but c'mon Randall... a start at the 20 with everyone healthy is better than starting at the 14 with a dude or two on IR.

    They don't need an RB right now. Whoever they get would probably be deactivated on game days (unless he excelled on special teams). They still have Brandon Saine on the practice squad. 5-11 220lb with 4.4 potential... but they got Grant, Starks, and even Kuhn and Cobb for emergencies.

    I would've liked him in December and January though. He'll probably challenge Saine or another rookie for the No. 2 RB spot next season.
