    Our best returner is Hall; not Humphries nor any of our RBs. He is a great receiver too, and he should not be sweating making this team. I agree Mark, we should start Murphy in the slot. However, we need Tebo claimed to use his running talent behind our OL til it matures to where they can keep Winston alive. Licht should trade Glennon to the highest bidder. Otherwise if Winston goes down we can kiss our season goodbye with our Albatross.

    Owlykat, you apparently know more than 32 other GM’s and coaches including Chip Kelly who put him in the closest thing he will see to a spread offense in the NFL and then said when he cut Tebow, “he is not an NFL caliber QB.”
    Despite being a self avowed Christian, Tebow is so vain he thinks he is to good to hone his craft in the Arena Football League of the CFL like Kurt Warner, Warren Moon, Doug Flutie and Jeff Garcia did.
