What makes McGahee so indispensable? And how do we know Ball hasnt improved? He hasnt gotten a good look this year. We know one thing... he'll have fresh legs and two good knees. Ball is 27 and has 175 total NFL carries. FRESH my friends. There's not another starting back in the league right now with more miles on him then Willis I think.
Come on, if McGahee was a rookie and he had all these fumbles and lack of edge speed - we'd be killing him. You cant just go off reputation.
