I am definitely excited. For many reasons. We get to see a guy that has a much better chance to be a franchise QB than anything we have had in last 20 years, we are going to wear the oranges again and we are going to see a lot of new players on defense and on offense. Plus we will be rid of a non-threatening offensive gameplan that no opponent respected or feared.

I hope your talking about Freeman and not McClown.  Hope they just let Freeman start from day one and let him grown in a season that will be lost anyways before week 7.

yeah season starts in September so by then he will be 29.  Either way you look at it, in 2-3 years when we are done rebuilding he will be 31.

I like to look at it the factually correct way.  He's 28, not 30.

So?  Running back is the easiest position to plug someone in and play from college or free agency if need be.

2-3 drafts and we will more than likely have another running back to take his place.

Good possibility, however we will have other obvious needs since our WR will be in there 30's by that time.

Too bad you didn't say that when you made your point instead of exaggerating and being incorrect.  

Another fact is there is little to no difference between Michael Turner and Derrick Ward when they signed with their new teams.


Michael Turner Pre-Falcons - 228 attempts, 1257 yards, 5.51 ypc, and 6 TD's  (In 4 seasons)
 Â                                                  11 receptions, 71 yards, 6.45 ypr, and 0 TD's

Derrick Ward Pre-Bucs - 342 attempts, 1750 yards, 5.12 ypc, and 5 TD's  (In 3 seasons)
 Â                                            69 receptions, 576 yards, 8.34 ypr, and 1 TD


Not much difference, if anything, when talking about the running game.  Ward has a clear advantage in the receiving game.

Ward is only 18 months older than Turner, but you just keep on whining away like a prepubescent girl.

If you look at the fact that he sat out two years in college because of ineligibility and got very little playing time his first few years in the pros, he has much lower mileage on his wheels and taken far fewer hits than a lot of NFL running backs in their early 20's.

Thanks for all the stats guru.  Either way he will be 29.

It is weird, I wonder if RAH and Mark even know about this.
