Please God, No More Jones

I see Thomas Jones is going to be released by the Jets, and Pete Carroll continues to sing the praises of Julius Jones. If there is one thing I am certain of with the Seahawks, it's that Julius Jones will never be the answer at running back. There are exactly zero situations where I'd prefer him to be on the field over Forsett, and that doesn't even count the stud I hope we draft this year.

My other soapbox issue is free agent running backs. Stay away! Sproles looks tempting at 26, but don't do it! Running backs are not hard to find, and we should not be paying a premium for a position where the best years are generally the first five.
