RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25

ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.

ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.

ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma

I'm curious as to what everyone thinks about our running back situation.

It seems like Greene is gonna get the start next year.

I really like Bilal Powell. I like the little that I saw from him in the preseason even though our line was horrendous, he looked very powerful. He also looked deceptively fast. He caught out the backfield a few times and I liked his burst.

We haven't had a big sample from him so maybe some of you guys know a little more about his talent. I honestly felt the only reason he wasn't in the lineup over Joe McKnight is because McKnight plays special teams. I think he's an all around better running back than McKnight.

So with that said, do we bring someone else in or do we work with what we have?

He may have done well in the preseason, but from the - admittedly few - touches he got in the regular season Powell didn't do much. Opinion is mixed here on Greene and if the front office feel RB is a need then Powell will likely be buried on the depth chart again next season. The position isn't exactly the biggest priority though so if LT leaves/retires, Bilal could get a better opportunity to show what he can do.

i think powell looks slow and weak personally. i wasn't expecting much and i still was disappointed. greene had a solid year. 1000+ yards higher then a 4.1 YPC behind a bad o-line. Mcnknight looks shifty and seeems like he'll fill the 3rd down back roll nicely. powell won't see any time unless one RB goes down

I think Greene is about as good of a back as you can get for a downhill, no receiving required offense. McKnight is a athletic counterpoint that will be useful in other packages. We need a second power back, and Powell might be that. Miami got pretty decent production out of Bush and Thomas, who are fairly similar in many ways to what Sparano has here.

Exterminate all rational thought, that is the conclusion I have come to

Here's something to think about. The Giants won the Super Bowl with running backs that are okay - no great one in the group. They beat the Patriots who had even less. The Packers last year certainly didn't have great backs nor did the Steelers. The Saints don't exactly have killer backs either. So I think we can say with a fair degree of confidence, we have the backs to win a Super Bowl. Open holes and they will bring it.

It's the offensive line that is crucial.

Greene is a back up.
McKnight is more of a situational, scat back/Wr.
Bilal? Just need to see more.

I agree 100% greene averaged 5YPC as a backup and TJ 4.5 cause our o-line was dominating
games are won in the trenches

I think greene was a solid starter. wasn't great but our o-line didn't play well at all. he still had 1000 yards and higher then a 4YPC and didn't get hurt. thats basically your average starter. can we get a better back? sure but its not worth it. as pointed out before when was the last time a team with a great RB won anything? barry sanders, adrian peterson, chris johnson etc. the last 2 i can think of is faulk with the rams and lewis with the ravens since 2000. the other 8 or so winners didn't have good RBs at all

Yes but the Giants have a great quarterback. The Jets do not. The Giants can afford to have their running game simply be complimentary to the passing game since the offense literally runs through Manning now.

When Powell had his opportunities in the regular season he was unspectacular to say the least, particularly against Denver. I was not impressed and am left to believe that the Jets will need to draft a running back to compliment Greene. And I don't want to hear about McKnight. He is not as good of a runner as Leon Washington and should just be relegated to kick returner and maybe third down back.
