Default Anyone see Aldridge tonight?

9 carries for 49 yards against the Pats. Looked pretty good. Thank God we got rid of him.

Aldridge was a badass when he was here. I was pissed to see him cut.

I would like to see Alridge make the Skins roster. Also, a local boy for me was running the ball, Dominique Dorsey, he played his HS ball in Tulare, CA. Unfortunately I think he and Alridge are fighting for the same roster spot with similar size/skill sets.

Dorsey was pretty badass at UNLV.

I like his skills, he would be a good return man for the Broncos should he get cut, since our return guys aren't doing so well lately.

I was sad to see Alridge go, but whatever. I think he's got some major skills and would have been good in the offense...he certainly had quicks and could catch the ball out of the backfield. I found his skill set more appealing than JJ Arringtons.

Maybe the Broncos pick him up if he is cut. The Broncos could use a player to return kickoffs. The skins have to cut someone. I also like Marcus Mason.

lol he's a scrub who probably gets cut. 49 yrds vs bkups no big deal. Mike Bell looks better in New Orleans.

yeah, shanahan really struck gold with players like Niko, Clarett, Henry, Gardener, Carter, Robertson, McCree, Manuel, Winborn, Moss, etc ... the list goes on and on ... it's no wonder he left our defense in such "great shape" when he was fired.

No he didn't. Aldridge was put on IR and release after McDaniels came aboard.

Shanahan fired ~December 30, 2008
Aldridge ~Waived February 11, 2009 (to make space for J.J. Arrington)

Denver Broncos

On April 27, 2008, Aldridge signed a contract with the Denver Broncos as a free agent.[5] He was put on the injured reserve by the Broncos following the 53-man cut, ending his season. The Broncos waived him on February 11, 2009.[6]

Quick with insults---slow with knowledge.........

Gaffney will be a good player in Denver, but go right ahead and hate him because after all hes just a McD "nut licker". You're lame.

No problem. I remember it because I thought is was very strange move at the time (the first of many in my mind), that they cut a young player that was perfect fit for the new system. It makes me wonder if McDaniels really did look at game tape of the all the players like he claimed. Because if he had, I would expect different player management moves then occurred.

There's only one "d" in his name. Alridge.

Just saying. It got REALLY tiresome listening to announcers and radio show hosts CONSTANTLY mispronounce his name.

Maybe that's why we got rid of him.

I try not to think about it, but that RB situation is frustrating.
Why we cut Alridge, Pittman, and Torain (among others) without giving them a chance to compete is beyond me.

Nobody else was interested in Pittman as evidenced by the fact that he ended up in the UFL. And we'll see if anybody takes a look at Torain later in the year.

Besides Hillis, Pittman was our best RB last year.
