    What's the difference? Offensive line play, plain and simple. Now I know we need a good, durable running back but I still am a firm believer that no matter who we get for a running back, including Alexander or Edge, we will not have a running game until we upgrade the offensive line. Therefore, that's where our FA money should go first!
    Exactly! You know it, I kow it, and thank God Childress knows it!

    In 2004 we dropped down to 18th in rushing, but that may be partially because we had such an awesome passing attack. Again, our O-Line is to thank. So yes, that's where we need to spend the cash!

    After that we need to address defense before even thinking about a big name running back. Look at our defensive ranking for the past decade:

    97 - 29
    98 - 15
    99 - 27
    00 - 29
    01 - 28
    02 - 26
    03 - 25
    04 - 28
    05 - 21

    The last time we had a defense in the top half of the NFL was in '98, and we lit them up that year (FYI, don't say it was all because of Cunningham and Moss, our Offense ranked better in every category in 2004...)

    chester taylor is definently the best choice. I have seen this guy play in about 10 games he is unbelievable on the field and has great vision. I am from Toledo so once i actually got to meet him personally for an autograph. He is a great guy. He was a hiesman trophy canidate at Toledo. He would be a great fit on our team. He has deceptive speed and he can catch the ball. We have to get this guy. He will be a star. O and plus he was the MVP of the Senior bowl.
