They said it came down to the ability to play ST and they kept Banyard who was active for the 1st time against the Bengals.

McCoy rolls an ankle in the first quarter you are good with just tolbert?

Im not good with anything this offense is currently doing. Do I think right now we should be looking for a 2nd or 3rd string rb? No. We have the worst group of the WRs in the league. Thats going to cause us to not be able to run or pass. I would be much more worried about addressing that first.

We do need another RB because Tolbert is wasting carries and space. Not saying I want to cut him but we need another weapon in the backfield behind McCoy.

 

But I'd still take another WR, Oline, TE, LB, etc first.

His yards per carry is a little higher than Shady's.

This website loses all credibility when they say Bills RB roster is "a position of strength" 

 

out of touch.

You do realize we can pursue both, right? It doesn't have to be in any order.

Joe Banyard's zero carries is a mystery to me. It would seem he's the McCoy style back-up, yet we've never used him.

If we're doing this, then I'd rather we just blow up the phones belonging to DeAngelo Williams, who was in CAR with McDermott, or Ronnie Hillman, who played for Dennison in DEN, *EDIT* and also was the odd man out in a DAL backfield that has McFadden as a healthy scratch. 

 

There are plenty of decent free agent running backs out there. Hell couldn't they claim Jonathan Williams off of Denver's PS if they wanted to? They should make a play for Barnidge to help out at tight end and then look for help at WR either via trade (maybe if a decent player is available for a mid round or late pick) or via free agency. Running back depth seems like an easier fix.

They should buy a time machine and pay $1M more for Mike Gillislee.

What this means is that theyll be drafting a RB high next year. Id bet money on it.

I'd be fine with a RB next year, just not too high. McCoy is not going to last forever.

Assuming we can trade for a RB, who might be available from another team?

I dont even see why one of them is necessary. Shady and Tolbert are fine. You have Jones on the roster and hes usually active. He made some nice plays in preseason. Give him a look.

Perhaps they can pursue adding another FB to improve the offensive output in 2017.
