The Law firm will probably be cut by the Bengals. He will look good in a Broncos uniform.

With our line being improved I am not real worried about our running game. By the end of the season once everything slowed down and Ball could just play instead of thinking about the play and blitz pickup or which hole to hit he looked much better than Moreno.

So many love to dump on Hillman, but forget, even going into his 3rd season is still one of the younger guys in the league.

with Anderson or Bibbs or whoever winds up as the number 3 guy there is no way to know what they can or will bring to the table.

We haven't even gotten to training camp yet. it is way too soon to be this worried about the position.

I like our RB's. I'm still worried about MLB and FS/Safety depth.

Kapri, Brennan and Juwan are all looking good. I'm no Hillman fan but I'm betting he will see the light (that is the light of his career flashing before his eyes) and will get serious and I think CJ is a baller.

Ball is a top 10 RB (imo--he certainly was at the end of last year).

So, We have Ward and a suspect Rahim and nothing else at S. That is what we should be worried about.

Running backs don't matter. Exhibit A: Adrian Peterson. Exibit B: Chris Johnson. They can be a nice compliment, but running backs are about as important as kick returners. They aren't going to be the reason your team wins the Super Bowl.

Particular running backs may not matter, but a running game that can actually produce does matter. With all the pressure on Manning in the SB, a working running attack could have made a world of difference.

I think rule changes have lessened their impacts since then. Marshawn had a 2 yard avg in this years SB. Ray rice had only 59 yards on 20 carries. Bradshaw didnt have a huge game(72 yards) either. Starks had only 52 yards. Stopped at 2011.

I would like that pickup. Underrated but would be a great addition. Could do damage with these soft fronts Manning generates.

Poor expression used. We could move the ball and get first downs when we needed to. We certainly were not as successful with as we were in 96-98 when we could dictate the run and get the difficult first down. Even with the ZBS

Yes Shanny always had a good running game, so much so that years after he left many of us were scratching our heads when play after play the H back would be stopped behind the LOS or at it and on a good play eck out a 3 yard gain. For years it was like what is wrong with this picture, that is not supposed to happen. Shanny spoiled us in the running game. Hell he could stick Vanna White in there and she would break off 1K.

RB is a young man's position, but when Hillman is your "verteran" it suddenly doesn't seem too crazy to consider bringing a veteran in to help mentor the younger guys, even if it's just for camp.
I think Ball is ready regardless of the number of starts If you look at Montee's last 5 - 6 games, there was a marked improvement in all areas. When we went through the number of 1000 yard runners following TD, each guy that stepped in had little to no starting experience and did fine. As for Hillman, he hasn't proven that he has overcome any of these things - it isn't about being a veteran. Yes, it would be nice to have a "veteran" in the mix who has proven capabilities at this level and not someone whose skill set has diminished to the point of being ineffective and overpaid.

Let's imagine for a moment that we did not lose 7 starters in the Superbowl and it was a much closer and well fought game. Let's just say we even lost by 10 points. That's 11 points away from winning the Superbowl. Would anybody be on here making a post about our RB position being a concern? I think not.

Felix Jones and Chris Harris host a football camp together. Wouldn't shock me to see him brought in for a test drive.

Addai was just a guy. The Manning offense made him what he was that season.
