Do we have any running backs this week?

56 posts in this topic

Shouldn't we AT LEAST wait for the Injury Report to come out this week before we start Panicking??? :scratch:

No. You may have missed last Sunday's game when we had to call time out because we didnt not have one healthy running back available to play...

.we ran a few playe without a running back even though we were trying to eat up the clock....

We should have panicked LAST SUNDAY....to be honest

Here's a summary for Alvseter:

"Adequate-sized, lean and narrow-framed, Alexander is a linear, upright runner with good timed speed and good hands out of the backfield (see Weber State, San Diego State). Lacks wiggle to make people miss and his run strength is just average. Not a physical blocker and career production is not special — generally gains what is blocked. Could have used another year of development, but left school early to help his family."

The "generally gains what is blocked" quote doesn't bode we'll, not with our line.

I'd just like to see what he has. I'm not doing any sort of major push for him by any means but I'm curious. It's hard to put a value on college scouting reports because there are so many cases of players performing differently from what the report says when their in the NFL. I didn't see much of anything special about Terrel Davis when he was at Georgia, but he came into the NFL and did very well for himself. We'll see I guess!

I say we use Allen then lol. I'm sure Donald will be Healthy for Sunday. If not Grigson & Irsay will figure out something. I have Faith in them. They've brought us this far, no need to stop now

      When I was looking up all the guys I did, leaving Billy Williams off was the toughest decision. Who would you replace him with out of the guys I have though? That was the problem I was having. All other decisions were easy. I knew most of the guys actually but had to look up Gabby Hartnett because I wasn't sure what Catcher to have.
    • Cardinals , Cubs and all MLB 2016
      The name Hack Wilson sounded familiar but he played well before my time (in fact, before my parents were born).     Billy Williams is Mr. Cub#2. He must be included on your roster.   If I create a Mets roster, it would have players that I saw play. So, Tom Seaver would not be included. 
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      Just for reference the greatest punter in NFL history was Ray Guy. He retired at age 37 because he no longer could do it. George Blanda kicked FGs till the age of 48. Just saying.
    • Brady to Appeal....
      Brady is such a baby. Little girls have more backbone. Look dude, u cheated, be a MAN , take off the Uggs, and own it. too bad they dont play Cincy week 1. Burfict could help Goodell get Brady that 4 game "suspension."
    • Let's talk UDFA: Mekale Mckay
      measurables are good, but when you have bad hands, limited route tree, average speed, and lackluster blocking ability, youre not making any team even if it is just making the PS

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London

      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
