I think T.Jones is a pretty good back. He should be a good pickup for any team that needs a good runningback. He never has lived up to what I thought he would since coming out of college. I thought he was the best back from that draft. But he still can be a productive back, and the Bears would probably be better off with him running the ball than A.Thomas.

That surprises me a little. I really thought Gruden liked this guy a lot. Hmmm. Is the Chigago line going to give him a chance? I think I would let someone else take a chance on this guy in my league.

Is this a done deal, or a proposal?


In any case, if Jones is the primary back, I think he still has good fantasy value, but if he's in RBBC with A-train, then I think I'll be glad VHawk took him in our league, and not me..... :-t

If only I could draft Chicago Runningback 'Anthony Thomas Jones' then all worries would be lifted. I think I would call him "Train J". Yeah, thats catchy. :*)

...I haven't ever cared much for Thomas Jones, but at least I thought he might have some fantasy value. With the Bears and A-Train to consider, that lowers his value quite a bit for me.

Does he even fit in with Lovie's proposed offensive scheme?

With Thomas Jones gone, I am wondering who would be the running back in Tampa Bay if Pittman was unable to play cos of legal issues.

Are Bucs gonna draft one back with the first round pick.

They'll probably make an offer to Charlie Garner and if they don't spend all of their money, they may trade for Corey Dillon.
