  • Michael Turner

    Do you think somebody will sign him to an offer sheet and make him their feature back?

    For a 1st and 3rd. No

    I think it's a 1st and 3rd. Is it?

      Yes, and No.

      No one will give up the first day of their draft for a player they can get next year. There's a few FA backs with something left in the tank and more available by trade. If I was turner I'd be pissed right now.

        They'll wait until after this year when he's a FA. Same thing for Schaub.

        I don't know how much he'll get next year though. Next year's draft is gonna be loaded with RB talent.

          So would I. He has the potential to be a very good RB in this league. Its a shame he is stuck behind the best RB in the game right now.

            I think if a team offered a first round pick in the top 15 or so the Chargers would take it. A lot of people think the reason the Chargers tendered him a 1st and 3rd was not to scare teams away but to be able to pick the best possible trade if offered. Also, there was a rumor the Broncos would have seriously considered signing him to an offer sheet if he was tendered a 1st. We wouldn't want to have to face him twice a year.

            1090, a local radio station in San Diego, reported a rumor that the Bills were very interested in Turner and might make a strong play at him if McGahee was successfully traded.

              The Chargers can settle for less than a 1st and a 3rd if they want to. They might as well get some compensation for him. If they trade him, they will need a new backup because Sproles is not good enough to be more than a 3rd stringer.

                  I honestly don't understand the infatuation that so many people have with Turner. What makes him so different from Schaub? He's built his reputation on running over softened up defenses the same way that Schaub made his by passing over defenses expecting Vick.

                    i agree but turner has made some big plays. he reminds me of lamont jordan from a couple seasons back on the jets. a good backup who is capable of making big plays.

                      Name me someone who's currently 25 and under who's 5'10" 240lbs., and has 4.4 speed? (Besides Turner obviously.)

                        Okay.... so he has good measurables?? Isn't Brandon Jacobs supposed to have some insane measureables? And once again I can bring up Schaub, who also has great measureables. Now, comparing a runningback to a quarterback is certainly a bit of a stretch but still.

                        Runningbacks are a dime a dozen in the NFL, it's becoming more and more apparent. Teams are easily capable of finding good runningbacks. Please explain to me why one who has proven literally nothing in his career other than putting up good backup number behind one of the greatest runningbacks ever is worthy of such high praise. Has he ever proven to be capable of carrying any type of load? Why use such a high pick on a question mark when there are tons of proven backs out there for much much less.

                          He's a promising young back and probably the best backup RB in the NFL after Reggie Bush.


                          As a Jets fan, I was thinking either of our 2nd rounders would have been a good trade. I'm happier with the Thomas Jones trade since we didn't lose a pick, but Turner can start in this league.

                          Someone will get a good pickup next year.

                            Hey bro, Turner is proven to take it to the house. He took it 74 yards against the Colts last year in their loss to the Bolts. He has amazing speed+vision, and is very shifty. Schaub hasn't done anything to prove he is starter ready, but Turner has. Just watch his tapes, and you would know. Plus, he averages 6 ypc, even though he doesn't get many carries, he makes the most of them.

                              Yeah he average is 6 YPC, but he only had what 80 carries, if he would had alot more carries and LT wouldn't have worn down the other team Defense his #'s wouldn't be near as good.
