    That would STILL be a dumb move, just like it would have been then..

    Ever heard of RONNIE BROWN?

    Um no, Edge isn't coming here. We have this other guy, named Ronnie Brown. You may have heard of him.

    For an incentive loaded contract it wouldn't be stupid.

    Ronnie shared carries at Auburn. Shared them last year in Miami. I am not confident in Ronnie as a featured back getting the bulk of carries. That isn't a knock on Ronnie, but having someone like Edge for a year or two wouldn't hurt until we build Ronnie up to a full-time NFL RB!

    I'm not understanding all the anger. Am I the only one who isn't suprised by all this? The best way to predict a person's future behavior is to look at their past behavoir. Ricky is just slipping into his old patterns.

    Edge isn't coming here. We did draft Ronnie at #2 for a reason.

    At what point do we let Ronnie start earning his $19 million bonus??

    We've got a bonafied franchise back. Having two is a LUXURY, not a necessity.

    Here's an idea: How about we spend that big James money on.....wait for it.....a position of need.

    well he does have a point.

    After last season when ronnie for the last 6 games he played in wasnt even a factor basically and did nothing, the vet moved trhe ball well.

    I dont think the Edge is the player we need cause he needs to be the #1 undisputed feature back on his team. 1500+ yards many seasons isnt someone to share carries.

    A guy like Kevan Barlow if avaliable could help us out.

    And Brady to back up Both of the Manning brother. They all want to come here since we will have TO and an offensive line made up of all pro bowlers.

    Perhaps Saban down played Ronnie's role and over played Ricky's in hopes for an offseason trade.

    Not like that matters now.....:shakeno:

    Now there's a novel idea. But it's not keeping with the thread's rational.

    What we need to do is sign Drew Brees, then trade for Marc Bulger.

    So I guess Reggie Bush and Lendale White will never be featured backs because they shared carries. Ditto for Cadillac Williams.

    Miami has greater needs than adding E. James.....this is a luxury that y'all really cannot afford. An inexpensive veteran back-up...yes...now that Ricky has failed yet again.

    Then we need to draft Cutler and Young and let Brees groom one, while Bulger grooms the other.

    For the record take Brees if given the shot over Cutler. Not a believer in Cutler at all. Overrated passer with bad decision making and no touch. Some things can be taught at the next level but with him it will be a tall order. IMHO Cutler = another Kyle Boller; strong arm lacking intangibles, mechanics, and accuracy. Brees is proven winner who needs to stay healthy (cross your fingers on that one if he becomes a dolphin!)

    I know a guy that could help us out.....Sammy Morris. He is cheap, on our roster and will know his role. Ronnie and Ricky was nice to have but it is over and I am not all that concerned. It would have been nice to have them both again or to get something for him but now it is over we can move on. Sammy proved he could carry the ball when he needed to and we still have KJ Harris who might be ok if given the chance. Having two backs is nice but now Ronnie will get the chance to be THE man. I'm sure he is not in tears over this and neither am I.
