Yea Owens isnt special but it isnt like Forsett is special either. Owens is an elite STer and our STs will be even worse now bc he is gone
But Forsett is still better.

I get the part about his special teams capability. As a RB though, I don't get the outrage.


Due to skillset, Forsett may have more of a role on offense than Owens, but I definitely disagree that he's better than Owens, all things being equal.

What makes Owens a good RB?

He is pretty efficient and still a good STer and a very good FB all-around

Is he really that great as an 'all-around' FB though? I mean...good STer yeah, put in some decent yards when called upon in desperate times as a RB. But i'm not sure he's any kind of a pass catching, lead blocking, goal line pounding whiz kid. He's just kinda...'An Guy' who plays 'FB' pretty 'okayish'.

Which sadly, kinda shined with our roster last year. But that's a whole different issue... Confused

I think he did all 3 at least above average
