Default Bill Polian said on NFL Live that we should trade for...

Steven Jackson, once he becomes available.

Would be a great trade if we didn't give up too much.

Your thoughts?

100 post rule.

But why? Jackson's a power runner. We have that in McGahee. We've got an up and comer in Hillman and we need to invest picks in our defense.

Exactly. I don't see much of a difference between him and McGahee.

I'd rather go back in time and draft him instead of you know who.

Only so much German TV to watch and if Y'all think our soaps acting is bad, that is the best they have.. They would get Instant Emmy's if only it was in German..

But on book #4 and really enjoying it as I make less time here to get some reading done..

No saw a lot of places hit several vineyards. Went to France, black Forrest and loads of top notch restaurants But late at night trying to get to sleep and then there is Libary time.

Anyway read a couple of books before I got home. Hell the flight back from FRA to atl was like 13 hours hellish head winds.
I'm not a big German speaker and when they wifes family get started and having like 6 conversations at once it was time to hit the books.

They might as well been speaking Chinese during those times.

So yes I read a couple of HP books. Always wanted to as my kids realy recommended them. But was working full time, going to lots of games my daughter played in so no time then.

uh huh. I remember watching that draft yelling at the TV for us to grab him. Would have been a great pick, but I should have known that Shanahan's ego would never have allowed that to happen. True, mike Anderson and Olandis Gary could run for 1100 yd behind that line, but all that tells you is a great RB could have probably ran for 1600-1700.

The way it should have been... Just imagine the 2005-2008 teams with him. Oh what could have been...

Agreed. It would have better to have drafted Jackson than Moreno.

Oh, I thought it would automatically tell me I couldn't start threads, I didn't know it was an honor system. My mistake.

Totally agree with the rule, was just surprised that the system wouldn't tell me to go eff off if that was the rule. haha I'm all for keeping the trolls at bay.

I wouldn't mind him at all. Two power backs are never a bad thing. He's much better out of the backfield then Mcgahee. Pick and Moreno get it done :-).

I think Steven Jackson still has a surprising amount of gas left in the tank.

10-12 Carries for Jackson, 10-12 Carries for McGahee, 3rd down opportunities for Hillman. That would be quite an impressive rotation. It would also ensure that I never have to hear the words "Knowshon Moreno has entered the game at running back" or "Lance Ball up the middle for a yard" ever again.

People on here thought we should of traded a 1st for MJD... so that means Steven Jackson is worth what a 2nd?

BTW I wouldn't trade anything for him
He is breaking down
McGahee is better

RBs are a dime a dozen, we can get one in the FA next year like McGahee or through the draft

I thought Jackson was given the right to opt out of his contract? Won't he be a free agent right after the season?

I don't get the reason for a trade.
