    I agree with you on that. I was done with him when he alligator armed that pass. How can a RB be afraid of contact?

    I think AA gets another shot to prove himself

    Either next game or the third pre-season game

    Maybe he will end up getting cut but he'll have another chance

    Not a goner yet

    AA is just another one of the 90% of 6th rounders who never made it. No big deal.

    I think it's because people actually believe the notion that productive RB's grow on trees, which is so far from the truth.

    I think that is one thing a lot of us are forgetting...AA was a 7th round pick who played FB in an option offense.

    I think he is hitting a higher level and he just doesn't have the skillset...he has very poor hands (remember the easy pass he dropped at the end of the Redskins preseason game last year?), he doesn't have any moves and it looks like he doesn't want to take on big guys one on one much.

    Oh man Ben Tate is looking good right now, I only wish we had a back up like this guy. If Pierce can be anywhere near as good as Tate, that would be a massive plus for this offense' development.

    Well Pierce appears to be back in camp. The Ravens are probably waiting for the 1st rounds of cuts, especially for players the scouting dept may have had their eyes on coming out of college. Is that next cut after this game?

    OT: Also Burress in NE for a tryout per reports. Like Brady needs another weapon.
