    Re: Who do you want to back-up Steven Jackson?

    Tim Hightower got traded to the Redskins, which makes him unavailable I'd say. I'd absolutely love either Ronnie Brown or Jason Snelling. Snelling is the most complete back though Brown is a beast! He can pound the rock hard or evade defenders. He would be able to shoulder the load for a whole season, forget about a couple games.

    In my opinion, if we get Brown, we will have the best 1-2 punch in the NFL.

    I lean a little more towards Snelling. Brown is 29 years old and has alot of wear and tear on him. Snelling is 27 and has only been a spot starter.

    Re: Who do you want to back-up Steven Jackson?

    Of the guys listed, I'd take Snelling. I think he could be very much like the guy whom he has backed up, Michael Turner, in that he's 27 but he's a young 27. Turner was a very good back behind LT, but only shined once he got his own show. Snelling could continue to be a great second back and if the need ever arose, he could be a complete number one back.

    That said, the guy I continue to pine for is McClain from Baltimore. They just signed Vontae Leach to be Ray Rice's fullback, so McClain won't be back in my opinion. He's a big guy who we can line up as a fullback for Jax, and then also give him the ball on early and short downs as the tailback. If we paired him with a shifty little scatback, we'd have the triple threat backfield. McClain's not looking to be a starter from what I've seen, but wants more carries than what he's getting as a fullback for Baltimore behind Rice and the now departed McGahee. I think he'd fit in perfect as our fullback/heavy tailback, especially with Jax getting lighter this offseason.

    I went with Snelling by quite a margin. The Rams should have drafted someone by now and shouldnt be in this bind. I want a back with a bit more explosion than Brown.

    Didn't see that report. Hightower is off the list.

    Added him to the poll and shifted your vote to him.

    Re: Who do you want to back-up Steven Jackson?

    I went with Snelling myself. Brown's a little too injury prone for my liking, plus not sure if he would be happy with second billing behind Steven.

    Snelling has played the role of backup very well and he has shown the ability to play well when called upon.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    McClain is 26 years old and like Snelling has never really been a starter. So it's a two horse race for me dropping Ronnie Brown.

    Re: Who do you want to back-up Steven Jackson?

    Added Jerome Harrison to the poll.

    I'm going with Snelling given his age. Ronnie Brown would be a very good option for 2011, but I think that taking him would mean we'd be talking RB in the draft again next year (though, given SJax's age, maybe that's a given).

    I wouldn't be unhappy with any of the guys listed, but I think Snelling would make me the happiest.

    I think if SJax went down, Snelling could serve as an actual backup and minimize the drop off. Essentially, whatever role they have for SJax, the offense could continue without altering the playbook

    I think that pretty much sums up my feelings for sneeling as well vs. anyone else.

    Re: Who do you want to back-up Steven Jackson?

    I'd like a Snelling/Norwood combo or Ronnie Brown. The only reason I want the combo is because I'd like a change of pace back/3rd down back. If we only get Snelling Jackson will likely be our third down back. Brown is a very solid pass catcher and is quite fast and would make a great third down back.

    If we get Snelling and Norwood Snelling can be our primary back up and Norwood can be a change of pace/3rd down option.

    Other: Adrian Peterson, but let Jax pound it in, don't let mr. fumbles have it when the game is on the line.
