    Dont get me wrong, he has shown nothing to say he isnt more than a backup quality RB, but sometimes the scheme and QB change for a RB can make all the difference. I like the move, it doesnt make me giddy, it doesnt mean i expect him to do big things but i think if he stays healthy he could have some dynamic moments
    i concur
    Banana Fett !?!? Where???

    Good movie and seen enough of Jones through College and Pro to say he is better then anyone on the roster we have now and that includes Bell since he hasn't shown nothing NFL wise other then injuries.

    I like the trade. We gave up very little and Jones has a cap friendly contract, earning roughly half of what Redman and Dwyer make.

    We don't have to rush Bell back now and Batch can't stay healthy.

    Remember people said the samething about jerome Bettie when we acquired him from the rams.
    Cleveland Browns suck!

    I'm scratching my head. Nothing the Steelers do anymore makes any sense to me or most fans.

    McCoy 5'11" 208 lbs
    DWilliams 5'9" 215 lbs
    I never said he was small I said he was built the same way, meaning nothings changed about him to make me think he'll stay healthy(Atleast from what I saw last season) he looked the same hadn't added any weight or lost any as far as I could tell. Don't get me wrong I like him and I think Haley's system is better fit for him.
