Not that he's really setting the league on fire, but the year they drafted Coffee, the Jets traded up to grab Sean Green right ahead of us. Green would have been a perfect fit for us. To hate on Glen Coffee even more, remember we had LeGarrett Blount initially. I think he saw our roster with Gore, Coffee and recently drafted Dixon, and went to TB for a better shot at starting. I think if Coffee "retired" before the draft instead of after, we would have had Blount backing up Gore.
I'm really not sure that the roster was the reason Blount didn't sign with us. He went to the Titans instead, who were just as stocked (probably more so) with Chris Johnson, Javon Ringer, and somebody else who was looking great in pre-season. The Titans released Blount, and then he went to the Bucs.
DONT YOU DARE STICK UP FOR COFFEE!!! lol I hear you RDB, this is what I read on ESPN when it went down though =
"He's a different kind of halfback than the running backs we have and I think the opportunity is probably better here than it was in San Francisco," Reinfeldt said, noting the Niners have Frank Gore and Glen Coffee on the roster and took Anthony Dixon of Mississippi State in the draft. "They have three kinds of power halfbacks. [Blount's] a different dimension for us."
I think if Glenn wasn't on the roster, it would have been a little more even. Oh well, and if my Aunt had balls she'd be my uncle.
