I think you guys have referenced this before, and it's one of my biggest criticisms of this FO. We seem woefully disinclined to move on from guys who we draft who don't pan out. Whether it's LeRibeus, Doctson, Perine - we just hold onto them for years and years despite no evidence they are ever going to suddenly start producing and proving they warranted where they were picked.I agree that with Guice still limited and draft pick Bryce Love on PUP the Redskins need depth at RB to start the season.
But from what I have seen Perine and Marshall are not the answer.
We may need to sign a player that ends up in final cuts from another team to be the #3 tailback.
Perine has been here for three years and has never been able to establish himself as a guy who can be productive consistently at this level.
He lacks the speed and elusiveness to make the first guy miss.
Marshall like Colt McCoy can't stay healthy for more than 2 or 3 games.
Time to move on from these guys, we have seen this movie before.
This is one of the core differences between franchises like ours, and more successful teams like New England.
In New England, you produce, or your ass will be on the sidewalk so fast it will make your head spin. There just doesn't seem to be anywhere near that culture here in DC. So despite outplaying guys like Perine and Marshall, we'll let promising 'gamers' go and retain them. And they'll continue to inspire yawns with below average production.
