Damn, we are getting decimated.
LOL we have Hill..
All is well.
And Blue and Hilliard!
The one position we can afford a loss....I presume Blue will be back next season?
Yeah, I liked Ford though. Of course we're fine at RB but Ford was a good back and those guys get hurt easily. Oh well, we'll reload.
Pretty sure Blue is expected back for spring practice.
Blue, Hill, Hillard, Magee
Blue is damned good.
Saw this one coming, why wait, he was rotting away. Leads me to a question, the average career expectancy for a running back in the NFL is something like 3 to 4 years, if you are in a system like Alabama's where you are the feature back, doesn't that increase the chance that you will have a shorter career? Ford for example hasn't taken near the pounding Eddie Lacy has, if you are a tailback would you rather share time and potentially have a longer career, or be a feature back and potentially have a shorter career?
I think that's the staffs pitch to guys who are concerned about not being the featured back.
