    DaytonBuck I've always liked them

    Did he even make an NFL roster?

    The Bears signed him to their practice squad after he was released by the Dolphins. Kinda surprising he didn't make it with Miami considering their RB situation.

    Not making the Dolphins this year is a pretty damn indictment of one's NFL ability at RB

    matz2 Sheeeeeeeeeeeit!

    No shit. I just saw that they released another RB today. If you get cut by the Dolphins this year, you might as well hang them up forever.

    This I don't understand because Russell Ran for I think 2 100 yard games in the pre season? I know thats just pre season but you can't sit there and tell me they had someone better? Also did he leave early? I think he did?

    I don't think he left early, but I'm not sure. As for not making a roster, are you really that surprised? The kid is all of 5'5" (maybe) and around 160 pounds. That size doesn't get you much on Sundays.

    you cant measure a kids heart to make it in the NFL........

    I believe he's 5'7" but I think he's more along the lines of 195-200...... I could be wrong but I thought I remembered him being alittle bit bigger than 160. Any how I think he's a Darron Sproles type of kid so in contrast kinda like Barry Sanders.
    Not saying he's going to be like him though.

    Tell you what I would take him as our starter right now...

    He left early, I wonder what fairy tales his agent was telling him

    The Miami Dophins have about as much a clue as our offense does right now...
