Default Fred Taylor

Now somebody needs to educate me on this guy. First off, all I know is he had one good season and has been hurt evert since. When healthy, is he a top five back in the NFL? Is he the Jags best bet? Is he a future Hall of Famer?
Good pitching beats good hitting any day of the week.

Every time Taylor is injured the TV commentators point out how much worse Jacksonville's record is in games where he doesn't play than in games where he does, so I guess he must be important to their offense. But what he has done so far is nowhere near good enough to land him in Canton.

This is a very thin year for free-agent running backs; the only one even resembling a "marquee" player that will be available this spring is San Francisco's Garrison Hearst.

Marc will become famous soon enough

I think he is for real when he's healthy, but it's so unpredictable. I don't know if the Jags want to wait anymore for him to get healthy and stay healthy. Brunell is already like 31. I would try to deal him.

Taylor definetly is a great back when he's healthy, unfortunatley he never is healthy. The Jags have a good team devloping between Stacey Macka nd Elivs Joseph who I might add are cheap on the salary cap. They are continuing to improve the more they paly and teh Jags should defeinetly work to make a trade for him
