Every washed up running back looked like a stud a day ago.

I cut him after the draft in my league. I had Ryan Grant and Vincent Jackson on my team too. Darren Mcfadden was a free agent. So was Brandon Jackson and LT(someone just cut him).

They aint no mo.

LT is picked in every draft

Sure they are. The average career for a running back is under four years.

thats for the average running back in the league

not for a guy that everyone thought was about to be a stud back

Wanna bet? Look at the 2005 draft. (I picked a year at random)

Here are the RB's taken in the first three rounds and where they are now.

Ronnie Brown-starter
Cedric Benson-starter
Carnell Williams-starter
JJ Arrington-Not on a roster
Eric Shelton-Not on a roster
Frank Gore-starter
Vernand Morency-Not on a roster
Ryan Moats-Not on a roster
Maurice Clarett-Not on a roster

After five years, five of the nine draft choices are no longer in the league.

Running backs of ALL qualities are notoriously fragile and unpredictable creatures.

I'm doing 2006 to see if it is different.

Reggie Bush-starter
Lawrence Maroney-Backup
DeAngelo Williams-starter
Jerius Norwood-backup
Brian Calhoun-Out of league

That's after only four years and two have to be considered busts.

What really drives the fragility point home is that out of 180 draft choices I looked up in those two years only 14 were running backs. That's 7.8%. Yet most teams carry closer to 10% of their roster as RB's.

my point isnt when he was drafter its that after 1 year everyone was hailing him as a future all star then he busted

Morency never had a big year, Moats had to wait several years to become a stable back

just dont see many guys get alot of hype like that being that yound and then boom its over

like another Ickey Woods without injuries

The only stat I've ever heard for running back average was 3 years. Bird completely and utterly speaking from his ass here.

guys im not saying oh no rinning backs dont last 3 years

Im saying its rare to see a guy have so much hype and then be done as fast as the hype began

sorry wolf

although if i am speaking from my ass it obviously takes on to know one so it makes sense you said it

If bird would just speak his point of view semi clearly he'd avoid a lot of issues.

Unless you got a bonafide Chris Johnson, you get a running back asking for big money, trade his ass for a linemen.
