Now why couldn't this have happened before the trade deadline Jackson would've been a welcome addition.

Willis is 31. This is bad news. I wonder if it's the same knee he got blown up in the Fiesta Bowl?

On the practice squad. John Fox talked about him in a presser just recently.

They're looking to sign someone with experience obviously... I think if anyone else went down they'd just bring up Johnson.

It's not that they don't believe in Moreno (they already played their cards by deactivating him every week) ... it's that they need depth now. McGahee is out for a while, so it's the smartest thing to do to bring an RB now and get him caught up with our playbook and system.

I love how everyone is assuming that this is an indictment of Knowshon, but not Hillman, Ball or Johnson.

Might be right. Gronk isn't a guy that could get any emergency carries IMO so maybe slowshon just kind of sucks.

I'm still in the camp confused that Moreno isn't in the active lineup. I can buy maybe it has to do with special teams (Ball) and overlapping skill set (Hillman). Still, our best bet to make it through this McGahee injury without a big dip in offense will be because Moreno steps up.

actually it has nothing to do with confidence in KM. It has to do with healthy bodies. Right now only Hillman and Ball are active, hence we need to stash another RB on the inactive list just in case one of ours goes dumb.

Damn... wish folks around here would just leave the blind hate! Like it or not, our running game right now depends of Moreno, Ball and Hillis. The last 2 I mentioned are not remotely close to being capable starting backs in this league... just not right now in Hillman's case. Thinking a street agent is going to get touches over Moreno right now is pretty delusional. Or do you want a street free agent to mess up on a protection call and get PM injured? Yeah... though so!

Honestly, Moreno sucks at RB. He is impatient, has no vision, can't read blocks, and fumbles. Jeremiah Johnson has a good skillset and is underrated. If his blocking improved then he should get the bulk of the carries.

Yes they do.

All 3 backs get reps every Sunday... and after the whole Shanahan debacle when we had like 8 different RBs for the season, I thought ya'll would learn the lesson on RBs.

Now if that isnt an indictment, along with all the carries Hillman and Ball get, i dont know what is.
CLEARLY there is a personal problem between Slowshon and the FO.

I have a feeling he will step up if he is given the chance. He should have fresh legs, and every team Manning has ever been on has had RB's that were average that did pretty good. Look, I'm upset about McGahee too and I'm praying he will be back for the playoffs but he wasn't tearing it up and he was fumbling. Our running game has sucked the last couple of weeks

Ricky Williams said he would come out of retirement to play for the Chargers, maybe he would change his mind for us

Bingo. That "indictment" was already out there.

By looking for someone new now, instead of just looking to give the current guys (Ball and Hillman) more reps, is more of an indictment on the guys currently carrying the ball than someone who was already relegated to the doghouse.

A third round pick for a RB that averages 3 yards per carry?

Until yesterday.

The run blocking has been a problem the past couple weeks... We're literally getting met with defenders right at the LOS. One of the OL seems to consistently get beat every run play.

McGahee is a huge loss and he's a vet...
