your post on atlanta is wrong. the falcons NEVER bring in duckett to be a goalline, 3rd down, or short yardage back. when one back begins a series, that back always finishes the series for the falcons.

All Jamal all the time. Unless he's on the oxygen or in lock-up, we won't see much Chester.


as much as i dont want to admit it there is a chance jamal wont be ready for the opener due to his surgery. i know he is going to miss the first week or so of training camp due to the halfway house...and im a bit concerned about what kind of cardio he has been doing. im sure he has been hitting the weights...but as far as conditioning, im not so sure. we might see him getting winded early in the season until he breaks his lungs. if thats the case chester would see some time.

musa smith is still injured so he is a non factor.

of course this is speculation..im just putting this out there due to reports ive read.

bottom line..if you have jamal..it would be smart to cuff chester for the start of the season.


i'd think that we will see a decent amount of chester. the ravens didn't match the 3 mil offer sheet to have him sit on the bench all year.

This is a good post. I would be nice to have this, or a similar more condensed version of it, stickied and updated year-round much like the Closer Watch in the Fantasy Baseball Cafe. ;-D

Fred Taylor is coming off knee surgery. And knee surgery aside, there couldn't have a been a more disappointing 1200-yard rusher last year. Taylor scored a mere three times; he went 7 games without scoring last year, and six games without posting 100 yards on the ground. Very frustrating for people who drafted Fred thinking he'd be good value. Well this year, he should be good value in the draft. Greg Jones is unsigned and not worth much anyway, but he was the guy who touched the ball most after Fred. And there's rookie signing Alvin Pearman, who should at the very least get a chance to make an impression. And there's LaBrandon Toefield, who was supposed to have been the backup last year and still could fill that role.


You sure about that? Greg Jones was a rookie last year, and I don't think they signed a 2nd round pick to a 1 year deal.

I have different opinions on some of these situations.

Dont forget when reading this fellas - we are reading opinions.

Its a good post for what it is - but the majority of this is one persons opinion - thats all.

Good Observation! Actually Evolution and I are going to be doing exactly that! There is an article right now that should be up within the next week showing early indications (a little out od date due to Arlo's lack of time to update the Front Page... ex. Travis Henry a Bill) but hopefully punctuality won't be an issue come the Regular Season.

i personally think its a move for next year...when jamal's contract is up. im a bit worried he might be let go due to their cap space.

Most of all, I posted this as a catalyst to the sort of discussion that's ensued here. I'm glad people are chiming in.
