    Im watchin atlanta right now. Mixhael turner looks great. Hes just like better tolbert. With aj being so good at finding talent and assessing it how did he let one of the best backsvin the leqgue go. Turner passed lt bc hes in his prime. We let go of him but franchised and then tendered sproles. Sproles plays way less of a role than turner had. Aj shoulda seen it coming and traded lt after 07. He coulda gotta lot then and turner would ve pummelib defenses. Ahhh hindsigjt.

    LT was coming off the best season of his career, so why would we get rid of him? We had no idea his play would decline so rapidly...

    Besides, I think we have a good RB for the future in Mathews (once he gets healthy). The potential is definitely there, now let's see what he does with it.

    It's just like whether or not we should have traded Brees after the 2004 season.

    Looking back at it now knowing how good Rivers is, yeah that would have been the best decision.

    But try making that move after the 2004 season when nobody knows how good Rivers is and Brees just came off the best year (at the time) of his career.

    Likewise, try getting rid of LT only one season removed from his record breaking 2006 season.

    At that time Tomlinson was the only choice in that matter, he was the best thing going in the NFL and teams just don't trade those kind of player's.

    Stupid thread. Fans would have burned down the stadium if we had let LT walk after winning another rushing title in 2007.

    Turner also didn't (and still doesn't) offer jack squat in the passing game, and we know Norv loves throwing to the backs.
