    So you think they actively made their team worse to save 6.5 million dollars?

    Lot of people kinda overrating Fournette and that 3.9 ypc imo. I wouldn't quite put him in the star category, but that's just me

    Though he was much better as a receiver than I expected

    At the last snap of last season, Murray was still better than Henry. They weren't willing to risk the extra money for a guy 7 years older playing a position that typically hits a brick wall. I don't blame them.

    Saying Henry was better than Murray last season is pretty hilarious though

    Without getting into Henry vs Murray, teams actively make their team worse at certain positions frequently to save cap space and allocate resources to other positions.

    Ignoring actual data and saying Murray was better is the hilarious part.

    I think it's silly to think a team with like 40 mil in cap space made their team worse on purpose to save money. And when the last snap of the season went off last year Henry had started the previous three games hth

    Yes if the money is tight. But Murray was cut with plenty of cash and then they paid a different running back a good bit of money. It's clearly a Murray thing

    The Titans only saved $2m by cutting Murray and signing Lewis. They made the move to get their better RB the ball more.

    I was pointing out that someone else was wrong for saying Alabama isn’t comparable to LSU at RB. Your middle of the pack RBs for Alabama > LSU. Sure LSU has Fournette, and that might tip the scales for some people. But saying it’s not debatable is wrong.

    So now I’m going to throw in Alabama for WR because Julio>all and then we have Cooper, Stewart, and Ridley.

    See what I did there

    Alabama is absolutely WR U in the current time period once Ridley is performing imo.

    I think Alabama makes a better case for WR than RB.

    I just can’t believe you’re vouching for Spencer Ware and Stevan Ridley.

    Oh and dblplay1212 , you’re not going to make any progress in the Henry debate with those two. Thrasher just ignores anything he doesn’t like and atl has at least admitted Henry is good but not worthy of a second round pick.

    Edit: I got users mixed up.

    Oh I have Thrasher on ignore. Once someone said he was on the spectrum, I figured that was best. I was just going back and forth with the OU homer that thinks this is 2014.

    This is categorically false...I’ve always believed Ingram to be an outstanding player

    Searched and while technically true, I’d like to point out that, in true Thrasher fashion, you:
    • Said Cadillac and Ronnie are both better than Ingram
    • Used Ingram to argue that Saban is overrated
    • Said Ingram didn’t deserve the Heisman

    1) Close...Ingram best pro
    2) Nothing new...I’ve never refuted that Saban is a tremendous slaver.
    3) He wasn’t very deserving, but few Heisman winners are so that’s not too big a slight

    Pitt and Ohio State should be in the convo for RB:

    Carlos Hyde and Zeke and Dion Lewis and Mccoy are both pretty damn good pairs. Probably better than any other schools 1-2 punch.

    Ohio State at DE will be interesting over the next two years.

    Cam Heyward was first team All Pro in 2017. Joey Bosa was 2016 ROY and has 23 sacks in two seasons.

    Three more drafted fairly high this year who will be rookies. Then we have Bosa and Young in upcoming drafts who most expect to go first round.

    Those are OSU’s only RBs though. Rod Smith isn’t adding much.
