It was just a jab. I'm for Brian Hartline as much as anyone else, but he's probably the only FA I've ever seen that was approved by most on these boards.

As for DMC's injuries, yeah he's had some issues there, but he's not Chris Perry.

Chris Perry missed 45 games in 5 years. DMC has missed 23 games in 5 years.

Plus Perry couldn't sniff DMC's jock when it comes to production or talent.

I would agree, but I've always heard that DMC does his best work in a zone blocking scheme? Or do I have that backwards? lol

You have it backwards.

He was in a zone blocking scheme this year and was terrible in it.

So do you want a big blocking power back with McFadden like Conners?

Brian Hartline is garbage. (Not really terrible, but not that good either.) I cannot believe people want to spend a decent amount of money on him.

I'd be for it if he'd agree to a new deal for around 4 years 20 million. Otherwise, no. He's due 8 mil and is in his last year. Plus, I can't see the Raiders giving him for the 2nd rounder they just gave us. Just to save face, I don't think they make that deal.

Chris Pressley at FB. DMC getting the majority of the carries with BJGE as the complimentary back.

Well if he's traded, he would require an extension (he only has 1 year left). 4 years 20 million sounds about right for him. You may be right about the saving face part though.

So, Brian Hartline had 74 receptions for 1,083 yards in 2012. Doesn't make him an all-pro, but it's a damn good season, and certainly a long way from garbage.

Please no, I mean I'd love the idea but let's be serious. He would be out after week 3 with turf toe or something. It would cost to much why not use that 2nd to pick up Gio who has the same skill set and you still get to keep your other one. It would also be much cheaper.

Could get behind this. McFadden is solid when healthy.

But prefer fresh legs on the cheap.

Not because of a desire to save money for MB. Just would rather spend it elsewhere.

Plus he is injury prone. But will leave that up to Hue.

The voice of reason. I don't see the hartline love either. Would love to see McFadden here, but I don't see it happening. I don't the raiders giving him up or the bengals ponying up what it might take to get/sign him.

DMC had his best production when Hue was OC or HC in Oakland (5.3 per carry). Compare that to the 3.6 per carry DMC has averaged without Hue.

I know DMC has been discussed (and mostly shot down, as all FA's are on here...unless they went to OSU), but with DMC likely on the market and Hue as our RB coach, I think it's an intriguing option.

DMC would certainly bring the speed that Jay wants as well.
I would've loved to have seen it (infact it was originally my controversial idea), but Oakland fired their OC + decided to keep McFadden as their centerpiece. On January 21st they put in place a power blocking scheme similar to the one DMac thrived in under Hue: http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local...187738421.html

McFadden is kind of weak. I'd much rather have Reggie Bush.

BJGE>injured McFadden

McFadden spends more time injured then running the ball so

No
Hell no
Super hell NO
And oh did I mention NO

His best thing is when the gm talks to his friends he can say "I got a RB on my team making millions a year what do you got" and they respond "I got a car worst 10 grand"

Well consider he got about a quarter of that in one game. 800~ yards in 15 games is less than impressive

I'm starting to cool off on Hartline.

7 games with less than 60 yards receiving
The average rank of the defenses when over 60 yards: 21st
Only 3 100+ yard games as a #1 receiver
1 TD the whole season...as a #1 target.
Only 2 games with a reception longer than 40yards.

I doubt he was seeing many double teams either.

He'll be commanding north of 6Million I'm sure. Not really worth it to me.

Yep. He also had that one blow up game with 253 yards and his lone TD.

In the other 15 games he averaged 55 yards with 0 TD's.

That said, I think he'd be a reliable target as a #2. As long as he doesn't get over 6 mil (I don't think he will), I'd still be cool with bringing him in.

55 yards/game is still more than Binns/Tate/Sanu/Jones averages combined.

I think Hartline would benefit from AJ more than AJ would benefit from Hartline if that makes sense. Hartline is a good fit as a #2 WR and he didn't have that true #1 guy in Miami.
