It's not really about his running game, but the O-Line creating holes for him. So anyone with good blocking and he'll be a superstar again...

Cincinnati will probably go forward with Cedric Benson, or draft a running back. Chris Wells from Ohio State is rumored to maybe go there.

I'm not sure if I would want LJ on my team. We have enough @ssholes and prima donnas around. From everything I have read/heard about him, he has a terrible attitude.

Most big name RB's are overrated. Even LT. I'd be surprised to see a team these days spending a lot on him since i'm sure he's expecting to be some franchise 25 carry a game back. I sure as hell wouldn't sign him if i were a GM. He's a problem player in so many facets. From beating up women at clubs to wanting/expecting 25 carries a game and the whole offense being based around him, and using that as an excuse when he averages 2 yards on 10 carries and go nowhere.

Sproles > LT

Mcclain/Rice > Mcgahee

I'd even say Barber is overrated even tho i love watching his good runs.

This is true. Let us not forget, Larry Johnson is technically a one-hit-wonder until he can prove differently. If I were any GM, I'd be skeptical about whipping out the pocketbook just to ensure you get him.

Not bad the Eagles need a powerback for goaline and short yardage situations. Maybe the Saints can use him, Him and Reggie can be the power-speed combo that can work very well, I still think Piere Thomas is better than reggie.

would be very similar to the cory dillian trade of a few years back that pushed them back to the top. Both are power backs that played for crappy teams and were known for their off the field issues, both good players... Damn this could be a great trade for the Pats
