everyone seems to want the next bus....isnt gonna happen, if the next RB to tear up the turf at heinz field is chris henry or garrett wolfe then so be it...the bus was a one of a kind player, cant just replace him with any big man carrying the football
nobody can ever be the next bus. But a running back with the amount of power in one of Jerome Bettis fingers is the type of guy I would like to see in black and gold.

I like Davenport and I think we owe him the benefit of the doubt to see what he can do now that he's been with us for a year. He came in after the season was started, and then didn't even play for a month after that. I think he's got potential so Im anxious to see what he's got. He is an added bonus in the return game.
I still want us to draft a RB that is a pure power guy just so we have options this year and we're not stuck if somebody doesnt work out.
I think it would be sweet if we could get michael turner off a trade or free agency.
wow for a first and 3rd round pick....i'll pass
You have to like it when you have a player that just plays with a chip on his shoulder. Jerome did that for a long time in his career, like he had something to prove when the Rams let him go. You get a guy focused like that and playing mean, he can be a beast!

Imagine playing this spread offense with 4 wide and either Willie or Tony as a single back running against 6 in the box. I smell a lot of 20+ yd running plays.This is the best "big" back in the draft in terms of size, power and ability to carry the load (25 to 30 carries per game) on a consistent basis at the next level. He may lack ideal straight-line speed -- he'll likely run in the mid-4.5s --but he gets better throughout the game and can pound a defense for four quarters.
