Well no you can pick Scott over Gillislee.
Back then? Yeah.
Right now our 3rd back is essentially a ST player, and I don't know if he compares to Washington.

It's true that he's a good player, but I'm not too concerned when 31 one other teams are drooling over our roster cuts

Well, ever since 2016. Payton has been very keen on keeping special teams stout. Boston just wouldn't make team except through the Practice Squad.

Gillislee was a temp player until Ingram got back. They put the vet on the 53 instead of the rookie. Neither was going to stay on the roster regardless. Scott was destined for the practice squad one way or another.

It's a great sign how many of our lower-round drafted players and UDFAs end up being productive for other teams.

Far different from what used to happen, when we'd misuse good players, let them go, and they become productive someplace else (see, e.g., Delhomme, Jake; Walls, Wesley; Perriman, Robert).

All we need to do now is finally win that second Lombardi.

Gillislee was awful. He offered nothing. It was a bad move...Scott should have made the team. As much as I liked Ogizbo...I completely understand why he wasn’t kept. But I didn’t understand going with Gillislee then and I don’t understand it now.

Yes, Captain Hindsight! We should definitely have kept Boston for three years, just waiting for the time when he would be the least injured Eagles RB left. No, wait...
it wasnt hindsight. Lots of people thought it was a mistake as it was happening. Where were you?
