    I'd have done the same thing if I had Barber and Jones...

    It'd be worth a look for us, though.

    Yeah, Barber is a stud. I wonder how that whole situation is going to shake out next year. Dallas is poised to have 2 quality starting backs.

    Anthony Thomas had over 1000 yards in 2001. He is a decent back. He COULD be a starter for a team, but we are looking for a replacement. With the way things are now, he is a damn good pickup if we get him. Sixone220, you must have lost your mind.

    Thomas is a good power back. You have to make sure first, that your line is good enough to create holes quick. He sticks to one gap and takes it.

    Barber was a steal in the fourth round. Very few RB's are worth a first round.

    Ted Thompson will find a suprise in the 5th or 7th round.

    I wish the Packers could pick up guys like Willie Parker or draft running backs like Denver has. No matter who Denver has at RB for the season he will do well. Now that's quality.

    So do you think that if we had the line from last year then we could put in any of our current RBs and get the same results?

    is this 2001? like miskito said, train picks a hole and hits it. this line isn't creating holes.
