    Trade Ben to Seattle for Flynn. Then trade Mendy to Oakland for Taiwan Jones. BOOM, back in business.

    Cant trade a free agent, I am surprised someone who played for as long as you played didnt know that.

    If we are talking switching to a zone blocking scheme, the line flows right or left and the RB is free to pick a hole or cut back. Might as well run some counter tre too.

    It allows special athlete RB's to operate in space. Taiwan Jones and Felix Jones could be available, and I'd try for the Taiwan variety.

    We need athletes that can do more then just what the system sets them up to do.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Meh, not according to Mike Shannahan. Terrell Davis, Mike Anderson, Olandis Gary, Clinton Portis, Reuben Droughns and Tatum Bell all rushed for 1,000 yards. If the System is ran properly, you just plug in players who fit AND BUY INTO the system.

    Terrell Davis WAS an athelete. The other guys were system guys as you suggested. But this isn't that system. Atleast, not yet.
