If it come down to a RB cut who do you keep.

If it come down to a RB cut who do you keep.

wow not even an option. i keep robinson. he is way more versitale than sheets
Keep Sheets, Robinson has had his chances and not made anything of it.
It would never come down to those two. Sheets is a running back and Robinson is player who can play half back, full back, and is a great special teamer. There is no comparison.

Sheets will be a 3rd down specialist at running back and Robinson will do what he's been doing: catching passes out of the backfield, lead blocking sometimes, possibly running the wildcat, and kicking ass on special teams.

Robinson is an under-appreciated backup who does quite a few things well. Sheets is a rookie who does one thing very well (run the ball). In conclusion, I think we need both on our team.

Hate to say it but, Robinson. He's more valuable because of his ST skills. Do we not remember that block that sprung Rossum for a kick return TD last season? Dudes an excellent special teamer.

I doubt it even comes down to either one. We're going to keep five RB's minimum, possibly six.

I agree with you on M-Rob but if i had to make a decision on the two Sheets all the way im a little bit tired of utility guys that are good at multiple things i want guys that Kick ass at there one job and fill the roster with those guys and if C.Sheets and M-Rob both went to PS my bet is Sheets would be gone in a sec and M-Rob might get picked up later if some one got hurt.

Fixed
They'll both make it. I like Britt Miller, but I think he'll be able to make it to the practice squad considering he's converting from linebacker to fullback. I think we'll keep 5 running backs (Gore/Coffee/Sheets/Norris/Robinson).

Dude (or chick?), it's K, as in Kory, Sheets... not C. Also, what exactly is your argument? WE NEED BOTH. They practically play different positions, although both are listed at running back (see my previous post).

If there was a competition, it would not be between those two. And if there was a competition between those two, Robinson would win out as we have two running backs in front of K. Sheets, and Robinson is a invaluable Special Teamer (made up word) and all-around solid football player. You can give it up now...

Sheets. Eventhough MRob is a Special Teams Ace and an ok back up running back, Sheets has that home run potential.

How easily some players can be forgotten as soon as better talent comes along: Michael Clayton.


M. Rob is like the Clayton of active gameday roster players. In fact, we have a bunch of these guys, but once some real talent comes along, these guys will be forgotten in a heartbeat.

Coffee and Sheets basically washed away any issues with the running backs. This may also happen once Crabs signs. Patrick Willis did this with D. Smith.

All these hopes and sticking behind subpar players is silly. We still need more talent and players like M. Rob will be gone in a heartbeat.

Killah Kieth comes to mind.
