The Tennessee Titans are releasing the 2,000 yard rusher after this season!
What does that mean for us? && what does that mean for CJ2K with his future going into the next season?

It means a 29 year old RB who's biggest asset is his speed will be a free agent. I don't see us going after him. He won't get more then a 2 year deal. Lots of miles on those legs

Doesn't fit our offense if we keep the same OL personnel. We need a back that can pick up positive yards when there is nothing there. A fall forward knee churning gritty gutty type of back. He should be about 6' tall and weigh 235 lbs. He will need to have been born in Naples Florida and wear #34 for his college team.

All we have to do is find someone who fits those qualifications.

I really don't see that. a Speedy back needs holes a lot more than a power back and we just are not making holes.

I want a Peyton Hillis without the mental issue's type RB.

Well, it would be nice to have a line that could run block and pass block, but that may be asking too much. Ogbonnaya gets a decent average, he just can't hold on to a football. If we had a more traditional back who just went for positive yards (unlike Trent) and still had legs (unlike Willis) that was willing to get the tough yards (unlike Fozzie waka waka) we may be able to be decent with the line we have now (4 YPC). I would like to have some nasty guards to open holes, but if that doesn't happen we need a back that can get a 3 yard carry out of nothing. That certainly isn't CJ2K.

If none of this makes sense I blame the vodka (for medicinal uses for a neck-ache).

dont start that attitude...

who knows if McCoy even develops into the offensive threat he is today.

McCoy has always played with a some what decent QB in Philly. He plays in cleveland and he has no line that can run block, has no WRs to stretch the field, and has no QB to keep defenses honest. McCoy is pretty on the IR for the 3rd time in his career in Cleveland if we drafted.

I am a strong believe that player A would not automatically be good if he was drafted by another team. Players get drafted by certain teams because they can fit into certain schemes.
