Next Year: Fragile(?) Fred v. M-J-D

Postby Jack » Fri Nov 24, 2006 1:25 pm

Judging from Fred Taylor's recent issues with the team over his incentive-laden contract, I think our franchise has come to a crossroads with the best RB in our history. Conciding nicely with this impasse is the excellent play of rookie dynamo Maurice Jones-Drew, who has gone from campus bully to goal-line bully more smoothly than many fans could've hoped. Here's the thing: can we trust MJD enough with the RB job to tighten our salary-cap belt a little by letting Taylor go? Or do we even have to make that decision just yet?

I know I'll be watching Drew real closely the rest of this season--and how Del Rio uses him. It'd suck to see Fred go, but his departure (if we can take that hit) could make room for free-agent acquisitions.

I heard a rumor of MJD being a candidate for being Tiki's replacement.

For that i'm looking at him as a possible keeper for next year over Ronnie Brown.

No clue, heard it quite a few weeks ago maybe on Sirius.

I also heard of Michael Turner possibly getting a look for NY Giants next year also. (read on CBSSportsline)

Also read today on CBSSportsline that MJD would be the starter if Fred is gone next year......which I hope is the case.

This one surprises me since the Giants already have Brandon Jacobs. It will be interesting to see where Turner ends up.
