    I was thinking of a different season but my point still stands. In the games Bradshaw did play he had 3.9 YPC and wouldn't have broken 900 had he not missed 4.

    Freeman had a good season. He wasn't a great back. There's a difference. It's well within Connor or Edmonds ability to have a similar season if we have a good offense.

    Air yards count but not in a conversation about 20 pages long when they haven't been brought up or included once. I'm not shifting the goalposts now, and both our RBs are capable receivers. Conner has a 500 yard season.

    There's nothing wrong with it if you have that luxury. We don't.

    You can't afford to spend primo picks or limited cap on a position of decreasing importance when we have many more important holes.

    we passed on a game changing HofF RB once before, history says we’ll go OL

    This time I’d be okay with that.

    If there's a possibility of patching the other holes with a reasonable stopgap, we do. Also, it's about playing to your strengths. What's this team closer to? An elite offense, or an elite defense?

    If you've got to go all in for one year (which is what this situation is), take the ball and run with it. Literally. Put up so many points and control the clock that the defense doesn't matter as much.

    I can’t believe you’re still using only super bowl teams as the data set...

    If all this "never draft a RB high" nonsense is the gospel, why is it every draftnik is predicting the Stillers to take a RB in the first round? I mean, surely not the vaunted Stillers!

    Like most "absolutes," this one is not in the least bit absolute.

    I feel like this is your answer to most everything, which is fine if you're just a "sit back and watch" kind of fan, which I get. I'm that way with the Sun Devils, and the Suns to an extent (more in that I don't know as much about basketball as I do football).

    But most opinionated watchers of the NFL, given the direction we went with head coach and QB just years ago, would probably paint us as an offensive-based team, closer to success there.

    i was the guy who noted a Front Office type and a Cardinal media person both talked inside linebacker yesterday....

    that being said, Pauline goes on to say that they view Collins as someone to step in if Golden and/or CJ arent back after this season

    the problem with that is Collins is a Jordan Hicks type ILB, not a pass rushing 3/4 OLB. that killed Pauline's credibility on this "information"
