I hope he explodes and we end up with a strong one two punch at rb.

I think Goodson is a good trade. He had good numbers in 2010. I haven't watched him play, just going by numbers (had him on my fantasy team--LOL). I think he was A LOT better than what he got in Carolina behind the other 2 RB's. I would take Goodson over either of the other 2 backs in Carolina. He could do real well with us switching to the ZBS too---at least HE seems to think so. He needs to work on the fumbles--hearing that from everyone.

I hope Taiwan improves this year also. If DMC goes down with injury, I'm really not that worried.......with Goodson and Taiwan in the backfield. Of Course, the O-line has to open holes for them.

I watched Goodson a lot in college and I think he should do well for us.

Living in NC I saw a fair amount of Goodson. He is great when given the right scheme. He is fairly fast...and plays more like McFadden than bush did.

yeah, that's what it looks like on his highlight reels. Maybe that's the plan all along. If DMC goes down with injury, we don't have to change our scheme or plays or anything.....just send Goodson on the field and keep rolling.

I love Taiwaaaaan Joooooones!!!! The fastest man on earth LOL

I was really hoping he would hit the scene running as a rookie (I picked him up on one of my fantasy teams last year as a "sleeper"--LOL).

Oh well, maybe this year. He's DEFINITELY got potential.....and speed, speed, speed.
