Droughns permission to seek trade

I dunno, from what I saw, on a whole lot of Blaylock's TD runs he was initially stopped well short of the goalline and was still able to get in. Something I've never seen out of a certain feature RB out there that put up 20 TD's this year...

Agreed. I saw quite a few of Blaylock's touchowns come up short. Seems both Priest and LJ had a lot more success near the goalline.

Blaylock does have a nose for the endzone but he definalty needs and offensive line out of his 539 yards the majority came when he ran up the middle (205) yards. And we know Blaylock isnt a smashmouth type runner and doesent have the big size so you could credit alot of his succes to the fantastic KC line.

Droughns on the other hand I think will make a team as a starting back but wont have much success.


i agree totally. blaylock didnt look to have as much talent as johnson IMO.

I agree with you guys. LJ looks to have more talent while Blaylock looks like a guy who is benifiting majorly from the good offensive line. He just reminds me of a Lamar Gordon type.
-Decent back when he has a good line. Sub-par with anything else

I don't think Portis is the best example to use. All things considered, Portis didn't have a bad year. Now, if you had said Olandis Gary...that's different.


Portis had 3.8 yards per carry this year. Both years in Denver he had 5.5, that's a 1.7 yard per carry drop off. No question about it, Portis had a bad year.

Consider that the only starters that averaged less than Portis in the NFC were guys who shouldn't be starting and might retire (George and Smith) oh and Kevin Barlow, but being on the worst team will do that. 4th worst ypc in the NFL for starter is definitely a bad year for any RB.


It kinda hurts when you QB passes for less than 100 yards in every other game wouldn't you say? I would say Portis did a pretty good job breaking even 3.0 ypc in that horribly dysfunctional offense.

Thank god someone else other than me thinks that Priest has nowhere near the amount of game he is credited with.
