Eagles/Bills Game Thread [OT]

Eagles have one of the best 1-2 RB combos in the league, the chances of upgrading are extremely small if you don't use a 1st round pick. They have more important needs on the rest of the team

WE THROW THE BALL 81% OF THE TIME, WHY DOES IT MATTER?

Because 90 of those balls went to a RB. If that RB is out for the year on IR, we don't have the depth and talent to adapt.

So why oppose picking up eve the likes of a Musa Smith? What's so bad about having a Warrick Dunn (not saying he's avilable, just as example) so that there was another experienced talent back there? Dorsey Levens saved our ass a few times. And weren't we better with Duce and BWest and CBUck than just the two of them? Why so much resistance fellas?

Because Buckhalter is fine.

Look at teams around the league. GB got Ryan Grant from nowhere. Whoever the Giants put in at RB was fine, and we've featured four different backs this year due to injuries.

If Westbrook goes down, the Eagles are screwed because he's maybe the best all around running back in football, but they wouldn't be much less (if any) screwed with Musa Smith?! than they are with Buckhalter/Hunt.

Let's be clear Kid, NO ONE, near as I can tell is saying we shouldn't look to improve our running back depth. I think the only argument is that there are much greater priorities on our roster right now, particularly ones worthy of a first round pick, which the Eagles would never do out of principle anyway.

I'd take Warrick Dunn as the third string back any day of the week. Why would he sign to be a third string back and wouldn't he be really expensive? Third string backs rarely need to play, so it's not an area of concern. The Eagles can't exactly have stars at every starting and every reserve position three deep.

Remember that one version of Madden where when you started a franchise you could always pick up Andre Rison for dirt cheap right off the bat? I think there was a linebacker, too.
