    I'd give up a 4th round pick for Stewart or Lynch. I wouldn't trade a 1st, 2nd or 3rd rounder.

    REMEMBER: GB lost Kampman. His compensatory pick will probably be a 3rd or 4th round pick. It'll be like trading Kampman for a RB.

    Tells us....2007 the back we had came from where?


    OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    You say the Giants practice squad?

    and how far did he take us in 07?

    Thanks for pointing out how silly your argument is

    You're totally right... every practice squad running running back is the next Ryan Grant

    And my arguement is silly :happy0005:

    Exactly... if you trade a 2011 4th round pick for a quality RB TODAY, you'll get a 4th round compensatory pick back in 2011

    We still have James Starks on the PUP list, so technically we have two HB's and 3 FB's. Starks will be available after week 6, though much of that depends on how well he rehabs.

    It is silly cuz they saw something in Grant at the time...And isnt it odd that with in a day they signed a guy to take his place?

    Something tells me just like with Grant Edgar and Ted been searching for backs before the season started and had their eye on this guy

    But lets just assume the worse just to make you happy

    The real point is, stop the damn whining and complaining...Wait till season really gets going and see how it pans out..We had people doing that in 07 and they were ALL WRONG

    although i agree with you that there is not need to panic RIGHT NOW.. i wouldnt call his argument so silly.. heres the hindsight to your theory.. could it be that TT got really really lucky with grant? could it also be that they signed this guy within a day because grants out?? i mean thats kinda obvious and dont even know why you would point that out..if they thought this guy was going to be good before why not grab him before someone else got the chance to.. i mean gado was doin pretty well when they got grant so then yes they must have seen something in him, but this pick up seems to me merely because our number 1 back is out and we are thin at rb.. i mean that just seems pretty obvious once again

    They had their eye on Grant but liked who they had on the roster at the time...and then someone got hurt? Was it Gado?

    Same thing here now....maybe liked that guy but didnt want to use a roster spot, but with Grant out they got him real fast cuz they knew all about him

    I like the way you think

    If this guy was soooo good, why did 30 other NFL teams not sign him?

    I'm not panicing nor complaining. I still think GB goes 13-3 this year with or without Grant.

    My problem is that Jackson never panned out, thus the need to trade for Grant. Now Jackson is the starter and being backed up by a guy didn't make an opening day roster. I realize Grant was a practice squad player, but not all practice squad players are future Pro-Bowlers.

    I would just like to see established talent at RB.

    I think the running game will improve a bit, pass protection improves, opens up screen play options, check down option is open for Rodgers. Grant is good but Jackson should improve after he gets a few games under him.

    All I have to say is grant wasn't going to put up his big stats he got 1200 last year but with Finley the whole year and better protection he wasn't going to get alot of carries just enough to stay balanced

    i just told my sister that jackson and kuhn plus finnley plus w.r i dont know they all seem to want to play hard and you can have the best backs who dont get the yards ap when they play us we seem to stop him you dont always,get the big yards but jackson gets positives that works for me.

    Although Kuhn was listed as a FB, he always seemed more like a HB/FB hybrid. Or maybe I'm just saying that to comfort myself now. lol

    Also, I think if we were going to have a problem with an injury, it's better to have it at the beginning of the season so that the backup player has a chance to settle into the role all year as well as allow the coaches to work on changing the schemes to best work that player into the offense.

    They are going to use Jackson and Kuhn as their Rbs. Plus they guy they just signed. We don't need to gain 200 rushing yards a game to win. All we need is a 100 rushing yards total from all our Running backs. Then throw for 300 plus yards.

    I've seen Johnathan Stewart floated in this thread. Unless you feel like dealing a 1 and a 2 (hell might need a 3 or 4 in there too), that isn't happening. He's very young, he was a recent first round pick, and he's REALLY good. Like, franchise back good on any other team that doesn't already have a franchise back.

    Hell, he's miles better than the guy we just lost. And the guy we just lost is pretty good.

    I'd take a flier on Willie Parker. Injury prone, sure, but he was good recently and he'll come cheap. No lose scenario.

    Sutton bothers me a lot now. He looked like an NFL running back.

    Lumpkin just looked like a dude that was physical to me. Not much else. But Sutton could run.
