you guys are all annoying about penn st so i'd rather not have any penn st guys on the team.

Get over it.

Don't think Shareef Miller is good, but if the fact they're from Penn State bothers you, then that's just too bad.

Why? It's not as if we've done anything wrong.

I'm so glad the Eagles finally invested in an RB. If I had to sit through another year of bringing back Darren Sproles from the dead, and the team telling me Wendell Smallwood and Josh Adams are good I would scream haha

He's got growing to do, but you have to hope some of that was because he had to sit behind a generational talent for most of his career.

Watching how good and comfortable he is running from the shotgun, how well he makes people miss...hard not to be excited.

I think miles sanders has a lot of upside and untapped potential. He was a five star recruit and only had one year starting experience and still went over 1200 yards. Experience is the best way to learn, he has all the traits that you look for and he just needs to learn how to use them better.

Dunno if I said this during the draft but I love this pick. Saw this kid run vs OSU. He'll fit right in.

All the long term answers at Runningback since Andy took over have been from in state schools.

Brian Westbrook - Villanova
LeSean McCoy - Pittsburgh
Miles Sanders - Penn State

I did have high hopes for Josh Adams.. he was a stud in college... is it right to write him off after his rookie season? probably not.. I think he can be a solid back for years to come but im banking on Howard and Sanders being our Ingram/Kamara

He literally couldn't be any more different than Mark Ingram.

He is only like Ingram in the way that he needs a better back to make him truly effective.

This isn't remotely true. Sanders was better when Barkley wasn't at Penn State.

Only in terms of volume.

Otherwise, his per touch was higher as a #2.

I still view him as a complementary back
