Better yet, why not use Peerman at RB, I think he has played there before.

I have the same thoughts as Shake on this.

i too have called for sanu to be in the backfield. this guy is a winner and would be much better than what we have. but no way will they do something that makes sense.instead they will play brian leonard and he will fumble or not get the 1st down. sanu is someone i would pay to see playing some as a back. the guy is big and strong and has a nack for making guys miss him and getting alot more yards.its just so stupid , they have some very talented players here and never use them enough or the right way. its crazy. bring in jon gruden. i want jon gruden,.he is a winner and full of fire.instead we get to watch giggles on sunday clap his hands and say lets go boys.come on,its maddening really. i just want a super bowl win here before i am too old to see or hear.HELP, HELP, DOES ANYONE HERE US LONG SUFFERING FANS OUT THERE.ARE WE STILL ON MARS.

We could go 5 wide. Then motion Sanu or Hawkins into the backfield and potentially hand them the ball or throw it to them out of the backfield. Or stay 5 wide.

We have seen both Hawkins and Sanu in the backfield this year. So its not like either would be completely lost because its something they have never done.

BJGE is clearly not a workhorse back. He is terrific in short yardage situations. Use him to his strengths and get creative manufacturing rush yards with other guys we have.

Hawkins is one of those guys who are hard to find behind the giant OL. And Sanu is a threat to throw the ball. I think they would be a lot harder to defend than just BJGE running up the middle.

Sanu is used to taking shots going across the middle of the field. I am not worried about his ability to hold up physically.

Plus, Forte's body is used to taking the beating.

The Law Firm can catch out of the backfield, also.

Besides for Wildcat plays, there's just not enough upside to having him at RB.
***The Law Firm can let balls go through his hands out of the backfield, also.

(There, fixed it for you.)

So why not? We need someone who can at least be a threat to the outside.


Remember when Rudi Johnson was a threat to the outside?

You and Brat seemed to think so

For those who keep saying he is to small James Brooks was only 5'10" 180lbs and Barry Sanders was 5'8" and 203 lbs. If you want a change of pace back you cant use the prototypical back.

It's not that he's too small, he's 6'2" and 208, that makes him tall and kind of lanky like Chris Henry(I know Chris was taller but they have a similar body build). Now, Barry was 5'8" and 203, that makes him compact.

Remember Preston Peirson from the Cowboys? He made a career of being a pass catching RB who they very ocassionally handed the ball to. He was 6'1 205...I think using him this way would be a great idea.
