Why Isn't Anyone Talking About a RB for the Seattle Seahawks?

Justin VanderhoefContributor IJanuary 26, 2009

You hear all this talk about Crabtree, Mays, Smith, Bradford, and even Raji. Yeah, they're all great players and will be good for any team. But that's my point, they'll be good for anybody.  The fact is there are lots of good players in every draft—you just have to do a little work to find them.

Crabtree, Mays, Smith, and Bradford are all big names and it's kind of like the easy answer for the Seahawks to just pick whichever one they get left with.  But the easy answer isn't always the right one. My point being we need a running back—and bad.

Has everyone forgotten about letting go Shaun Alexander? He left a big hole, you can't deny it. True, his talent seemed to vanish with the millions we gave him, so we let him go, but there is still a big hole.
