    If Morris is not 100%, I would love to see Davenport become a Patriot.

    Maroney is too much of a dancer on short yardage runs..

    Right, so then they can have Maroney, Morris, Faulk, and Davenport.

    That makes a ton of sense.

    (P.S. Hey Nut! What did I say?)

    I remember that game he came in for Parker against the Rams on the NFL Network and he was quite beastly.

    Now lets begin pats1 making fun of people for mentioning and other members rebutting!

    All I can think about him is that he dumped a special load in a closet when he was with Green Bay. I am guessing he was a little drunk. I am serious there was an article at the evil four letter. com

    Yeah, Davenport would be the the best Steeler RB castoff turned Patriots since Amos Zero-way.

    But you're right about short runs. Davenport does have much shorter runs than Maroney. Shorter even than Amos had.

    I'm losing track. Maroney-Faulk-Morris-Davenport-Kevin Jones-Travis Henry-Lawrence Phillips-who am I forgetting?

    Seriously, are you REALLY suggesting signing a guy because of ONE game? Mike Cloud came in for ANtowain in 2003 agaisnt the Titans and was more than beastly - he was awesome. That game. Is Cloud available?

    Are you REALLY implying I once posted anything resembling "Let's sign him"?

    Or were you just desperately looking to throw in that generic sarcastic other FA's comment, which has already done 100 times before? I hope the latter or your reading comprehension is quite disturbing.

    Seriously, what the hell was going through your head when you posted that? Are you just trying to post message board filler or is your reading comprehension level truly that low?

    Please think before you post, which is evident you don't seeing as how you just double posted.

    Davenport wouldn't be an upgrade at any position.

    We're better off with Morris, and Ben Jarvis Green ellis

    Disable Jersey

    :rocker:

    Perhaps we could have a forum called (I don't know) Yard Sale/Castoffs Corner/Re-tread and gather all of these threads together for those who are interested -- or, at least, the Mods could merge them into a single thread.

    No, he left one in an ex-girlfriends apartment. I've always been curious. What his
    train of thought was to jump to that. I'm going to get even with that b****. I'll
    do her girlfriend. Nah. I'll put something in her gas tank. Nah. I'll call her in the middle
    of the night. Nah. I'll leave one in her closet. Yeah, that's the ticket. Now, let's get to the logistics of this escapade. Not sure about you guys. But, I can't do it on demand. Do you wait til you have to go to sneak into her apartment? What if she's there? Do you sneak in
    when she's not there? Then just drop one. Ain't easy.

    Through the draft we made strides towards maintaining a "good character" culture. Why reverse it by picking up this thug?

    Surely this season we have to at least try and let Maroney have most of the season? He was excellent in the playoffs last year and should have run it more in the SB

    You guys really don't want Davenport. He's a good backup, but thats it. When he comes in off the bench, he plays well enough, but as a starter, he's not that great. Word is he has trouble picking up the playbook, hence the shortened list of plays he gets touches on. He runs too tall as well. He's not good in short yardage situations. Willie Parker was taking our 3rd and short carries because Najeh couldn't get it done. The Steelers signed Moore from Minnesota prior to the draft just to replace this guy on third downs. Forget about the Mendenhall signing, Najeh was gone when Moore arrived on site.

    Great headline: "Davenport gets into a load of trouble."

    but, come on, this was like six years ago! Who hasn't broken into a woman's college dorm and defecated in the closet? :eek:

    Needless to say, that train either derailed quickly and painfully, or the train left the station before he ever boarded. :D

    Jesus, dude. SMS much?

    Oh and NO WAY to Davenport. I've never liked him, even when he was with the Hurricanes.

    I don't care for him either, I thought you could tell from my post. Too subtle perhaps.

    What's SMS?
