Shelton a bum?

Postby Sixxgunn » Fri Sep 16, 2005 12:11 pm

Must suck to be told you just flat out stink, take the year off! Anyone know if he was looking that awful that he couldn't have been kept on until he recovered? What do they do now, let him rehab and work out until next year, or can you practice with the team if you are technically on reserve? Not sure how that works.

Steven Davis is back, Jamal Robertson was impressive in the preseason, Deshaun Foster is playing healthy, Nick Goings was a horse last year...

Why waste a roster spot on a #5 rookie RB that just broke his foot when they mostly likely won't even need him. All reports had Shelton coming along slowly in his assignments, and there is no need for anyone to carry 5 RBs on the roster. Even with catstrophic injuries, Carolina and Denver were down to using their 3rd string RBs last year... Have you ever heard of a 5th string RB actually getting playing time throughout the year?

Well technically, Leonard Henry was the #4 RB, because Miami hadn't traded for Lamar Gordon until after Ricky left.

Travis Minor -> Lamar Gordon -> Sammy Morris -> Leonard Henry

Besides if your team/RBs are that bad, what is the point in bringing in a 2nd round RB who is behind in his assignments. Might as well bite the bullet and hope for a high draft pick.

Carolina: S.Davis, D.Foster, R.Smart, J.Harris, B.Hoover

All of them got starts... Harris was pulled early in favor of Hoover (FB) but it was still a start.
