    Re: Vikings | Childress would like to upgrade running backs

    Lendale ain't that special..

    Maroney busts tackles just as good..

    Maroney is faster.. Combine will show it

    Maroney has better vision from what I saw..

    Maroney played in a harder conference.. And his line was great.. But not as good as the USC line..

    Lendale wouldn't fit the WCO either

    Re: Vikings | Childress would like to upgrade running backs

    I wouldn't mind Foster, Green or Davenport either. They will cost less than Lewis and edge. I guess I still want to see us give Mewelde at least one 20 carry game and see how he does. Mewelde is being judged on poor use by the previous coaching staff.

    That will give Mewelde a proven 20+ carry player to compete with. Mewelde is a talent that has been mis-used and stereotyped so far by our team.

    This will open up options in the draft as well since we won't be dependent on having a top 3 RB falling to #17.

    Re: Vikings | Childress would like to upgrade running backs

    Doesn't anybody else think Mewelde could carry the load? I think he is more than capable and he can catch the ball out of the backfield really well too. The one thing he needs to improve on is his coverage pickup, but that is to be expected from a two year player.

    Re: Vikings | Childress would like to upgrade running backs

    I think MeMo can be a good productive RB...but I dont beleive he can be that 20-25 carry RB every week. Deangelo and Maroney both fit our new offense perfect. MeMo and Deangelo arnt that differnt IMO...the only thing that seperates the two is Deangelo's ability to be our next Franchise back...hes proved over his college career that he can handle the load. I really think that we should draft him or Maroney. Edge would be amazing...but like everyone knows...he'd eat up alot of money.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Re: Vikings | Childress would like to upgrade running backs

    foster has been franchised, green just had his quad ripped off his leg and davenport shits in closets. i wouldn't want any of them on the vikes. we are much better off drafting a RB. and if the draft pick is a bust moore is more than capable of starting. if we could get the o line we had a few years ago moore could easilly be a 1000+ yd back so we don't really need an expensive player like edge or alexander

    The thing about Williams is that he got hurt this past year in college and he played at Memphis. Who the heck is on Memphis' schedule!!

    Lets not jump on the great RB bandwagon just remember the scrub Hersh Walker..... RB is not the key to our SB dreams........

    He wasn't underutilized, he was made to change his running style.

    As I recall, he used to stand 3 or 4 steps behind the QB & he could run great. When he came to Minnesota they made him shorten it up to 2.

    I don't think he ever got comfortable with it & it affected his running game.

    He still averaged over 4 yards a carry. It wasn't Walker that was a bust. It was what we gave up to get him that was.
