  • Many players with that injury are never 100% again . He wasn't a #1 caliber RB when he was 100% . Prosise will most likely be gone next season ; so I look for Travis Homer to be the #2 RB . The Hawks will pick up another RB or 2 in the draft and in FA . Hopefully they avoid taking a RB in the draft before the 3rd or 4th round again .

  • Penny will be fine. ACL tears are NOT as bad as they used to be.

    As far as the draft I would LOVE McFarland or Edwards-Helaire.

    Obviously, every case is distinct, but yes, success and recovery rates are much better than they were when Curt Warner went down.

    I'll take the good news that he is progressing.

    I don't get this take. Penny was just starting to come on really strong and, in my opinion, prove he was a #1. If Homer is our #2 next year, we won't be going very far. Homer is a weak #3 option at best.

  • I don't think it's fair to criticize Homer for the state of affairs our O Line was in when he got his number called. Given the circumstance he turned out to be a great value. What was he, rd6 or 7? We lost 2 good backs behind the same line Homer couldn't rack up huge yardage behind. He earned his keep.

  • Great to hear he is already on a bike. He'll be ahead of schedule and he's never had a major injury.

    I still think the Hawks will draft an RB, and this is a very decent class. If they want a good one the 2 I mentioned would fit like a glove in this offense.

    Agreed. Can't see them skipping the RB class this year. Assuming Prosise is done and with Penny in extended rehab, it would be foolish to NOT pick at least one RB.

    Let me explain it for you:
    This guy never liked Penny. He ripped him constantly and he would like to see him fail.
    As for Travis Homer being the number two back, if that happens we'll have pretty much no run game. Homer is a fine special team player and a change of pace third down type at best in the NFL. Agree with Appy, He was definitely good value for where he was drafted but he is not a number two running back in the NFL.

  • If he wasnt outrageously expensive would anyone be tempted by Ekeler from the Chargers? He seems to be the type of player they were hoping Prosise was going to be. The FO might like adding a known prospect into the mix?

    That would work for me if the price was right. The problem is we need our salary cap space for defense, badly. Because of that I think L80 is closer to how things will play out because I do agree with jammer I don't think Penny's ready till mid-season unfortunately.

  • Carson isn't the most reliable back either. Love the guy but with his running style and the pound this teams pound the rock philosophy he's always going to be an injury risk. RB should be a pretty big priority.

  • Whoever is toting the rock for us will be as good as our O Line can make him.
    And whoever that is will hopefully get lots of work due to the stellar job our new D Line does.

    I think we're really close on DL (please God let us get Clowney back!), and I think we're way further away on OL. I see so many teams where no matter what the opposition does on D, the OL just makes them look ineffective and stupid. I long for that to happen for us once again. I haven't seen that since the halcyon days of Holmgren.

    This must be a troll post. I have rarely seen such empty and un-backed opinions on this board, and I hope that's not what this community is coming to.

    A starter is exactly what Penny was starting to look like before he was injured. When he started ripping off tough runs in the middle that made people think it was Carson, that's when you knew he was turning the corner. Here's to a speedy recovery.

    No Montana, it's not a troll post. The guy has literally ripped Penny for the last year even once he really began to run hard and run well and he's not alone (looking at you JayhawkMike) And yes, the main forum has deteriorated to this type of stuff man.

  • This fasination w/refusing to give a player credit, all because you don't like him is so strange.
    I will never understand it. Being wrong about a player is a GOOD THING if it helps your team. People just decide someone sucks and/or they don't like them and no matter what the player does, they refuse to give credit. :?
    Penny clearly has the skills to contribute big time to this team. In fact, had him and Carson not been injured, there is a VERY good chance this team makes the NFC Championship.

  • If Penny could come back to the from he was before he got injured that would be great. I don't get the Penny hate I think he's a better back than Carson imo He just needs the touches. I don't get all the Penny Hate. Maybe he should change his last name to He Hate Me..

    Carson fumbles to much he should of got yanked out of most of those games. Carson might run yarder but Penny gets yards just as good. He just doesn't get the opportunity, IF we lose Carson next year and Penny comes back fully healthy I would be totally fine with it. Penny has almost a full yard better average and is threat to take to the house, Last time I checked they are running behind the same crap line. So um........yes.

  • Carson's injury wasn't all that serious Well have him back. If Penny get's well by mid season that will be great. In the meantime I thought Beast showed off decent skills to end this season. Still blocks and catches well. Showed good power in short yardage. Maybe he would come back to fill in and be part of the team. Seemed like he really enjoyed the chance to be a mentor for the younger guys. Doubt he would expect top $. We sure could use the extra money to beef up the lines and make life easier for our RBs.
    Bring back the Beast!

    I don't think so. Beast was hoping he had a short path to a new ring. Doubt he wants to come back as a "fill in" role. Besides, we need some new young blood to back up the Carson/Penny team. Homer isn't really ready for a full time role and we need some horses in the stable.

    We do need a new RB to replace Mr.Glass..
    I think there is one out of ND for this draft ..He has the size.
    I only want TE's,OL and S from ND.

    TRUTH. The couple games before Penny's injury, there were a few runs where at first I thought it was Carson running up the middle, only to see Penny's 20 getting up from the pile instead of Carson's 32. Granted, there were maybe a handful or two of those plays, but the fact that Penny's inside running could EVER be mistaken for a Carson run was a huge, huge step for Penny.

    It's just so silly to debate Carson vs. Penny vs. whomever. Love Carson. Carson, and the team, need to have other capable back(s) to share the load with. Carson's physical running style is a severe pounding on his body. To have Carson available in crunch time and playoffs, Pete needs to be able to limit his workload by having other excellent options available and in the mix. Penny had finally "arrived", and then just like that, we lost him.

  • I don't think our RB situation is as good as people think. Carson and Penny have quite an extensive injury history between the two of them.

    I also don't think Penny is that great as a player. He seems to struggle with the little procedural stuff. Wilson is constantly having to direct him on the field. Reminds me a little of Christine Micheal in this way. He's had a few good games, but a lot of really bad games mixed in there. He's elusive in the open field but he hesitates too much at the LOS. I don't think he would be a good bell cow back --- plus even with his limited reps he's suffered quite a few injuries. Both Carson and Penny are injury liabilities at this point. We should look to pick up another back as a contingency.
