From what I heard the trial was going to be moved back to Feburary because the court was jammed. Which means he wouldn't miss any of the season.

how do you know for sure that Lamar Gordon wont be the backup? The last peice of info I read about this was that Gordon was outproducing Jackson. If you aren't 100% sure about a backup, then with someone that risky why would you take such a risk? I mean it would be sweet for me to see you take Faulk in the 2nd, Jackson whenever, and then I grab Lamar in like the 18th round and watch him start all year.


first off, just because he's injury prone won't mean that he'll miss most of the season, maybe only his usual 3-4 games. secondly, the rams picked jackson in the first. it won't take much time for a rb to adjust, so unless he looks horrible, i gotta think that they'll want to give jackson some carries since he's more talented than gordon/harris. besides, i heard that martz might use them 2 in the same backfield a few plays

very true. They did draft Jackson in the first. But...the bengals drafted Perry in the first too didnt they? What does that mean for Rudi Johnson? Though the situation is slightly different as they will be battling for a backup role in StL and its the starting job in Cinci. I guess it just depends on how you look at it and what your opinion is. To me its just a little more risk than I would like to take in my drafts. Ive been wrong plenty before and if I'm wrong now than thats fine. But gamble enough and you will lose eventually

it's not really a gamble. i wouldn't pick him over shaun alexander or edgerrin james. but if there's nothing but marshall, stephen davis, dillon and then the big dropoff to guys like barlow, kevin jones, staley. marshall is the way to go just for his ability to have 100yds and multi TD games. i'd say he's around the 12th best rb.

perry will not play much unless rudi flops. they drafted him because rudi can become a FA i think after this year or next year, and they don't want to pay him the $ cuz they're not sold on him (just M.O.)

True lewis probably won't match his 2000 yard performance, but teams ALREADY "spied" on him since for most of the season lewis was their ONLY offense. That isn't going to get any worse.

Why wouldn't you draft Jeff Garcia? Or do you keep up on football players sexuality? :-b (Im guessing that may be why you won't draft him)
