    Detroit released Reggie Bush and if Ronnie Brown is also on the market why not sign Reggie Bush and cut Daniel Thomas and add Ronnie Brown as a fulltime fullback use Reggie and Lamar in a two back set. my reasoning may be lame but with our oline why not add a fullback or another tightend . and we should never have let Reggie Bush go because that really set us back a year on that lame *** move.


    I know that wont happen but they are playmakers . Ronnie MAY NOT BE FAST BUT HE CAN STILL BLOCK . and I would seriously trade for Dez Bryant screw that Jeff Ireland Dez can do two things well where as Hartline could do nothing worth watching so adding a couple of wrs and a legit running back and we are in business.

    Lamar Miller makes him redundant in Miami.
    There is a need for more of a short yardage type back to compliment Miller.

    Boom, there's your short yardage back.

    Now, which Walmart is he working at?

    A couple points:

    1) Both Bush and Brown are done. There's no need to bring them back. There are better (and cheaper) short yardage backs out there. Our offense doesn't really have a traditional fullback, and I'm not sure what Brown brings to the table at that position.
    2) Dez Bryant will not be traded in Dallas. There's no way that happens. Even if it does happen, we don't have the kind of cap room that it's going to take to get here.

    Clearly, this leaves us with only one solution. We should not only trade for Dez Bryant, but also for Adrian Peterson. #Championship.

    Neither of them really have the vision and decision-making skills to work well in zone running schemes.

    Reggie Bush still has tread on his tires I think, but he's got a counter-intuitive and narrow set of run plays he works well on. Bill Lazor I think would use him well, but Philbin wants a predominantly zone scheme so I couldn't see it happening.

    Ronnie Brown is solely a 3rd down back at this point in his career, and there are maybe better options in that capacity. I'd rather we work on Damien Williams blocking at this point.

    I don't see any benefit in signing Bush or Brown. They both are well past their prime and are not going to really help a team which will probably have trouble winning more than 6 or 7 games next season.

    I would rather ther see the team go with a youth movement next year,so they can get some experience before the new head coach takes over in 2016.

    Don't need to cut Daniel Thomas, as he is a FA.

    Lamar Miller does not make Reggie Bush redundant. Lamar Miller isn't nearly the chunk yardage and homerun player Reggie Bush is (when healthy). Philbin never used Reggie correctly (or most of our players, he's an idiot) during their year together and isn't likely to start now.
