    True, Also I wonder if what we have to give up, would Marshawns production be better then McGahees production with his trade (tell me if this doesn't make sense I will try to fix it)

      For what it would have taken to get Marshawn and move up to #11 we are doing much better. To move up to #11 we would have had to trade our first, 2nd, and 3rd round picks as well as an 08 2nd or 3rd rounder. I'd take Willis Mcgahee, Ben Grubbs, Yamon Figurs, and Marshal Yanda over Marshawn alone any day.

          I don't feel Lynch was a reach at 12 since he would have likely went to Green Bay at 16 so its not that much of a difference. The problem was a lack of stud running backs in this draft so he was the second best back by default. I don't like that Buffalo drafted him as a need pick as opposed to drafting the highest ranked player they had on their board. They could have easily got a Kenny Irons in the second or a Tony Hunt and they would have been fine. Drafting for need as opposed to getting the better athletes can haunt a franchise, like the Cardinals reaching on Levi Brown at 5 which I hope works out for them.

          So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

            Agreed, I think at the very least Willis will be an upgrade over the Jamal Lewis from last year.

                    Well he could be worse, but what are the chances? He brings us a better ability to catch out of the backfield and explosion Jamal didnt have the past couple of seasons.
