Their recent signing of Draughn gave them the leverage they needed. Too bad they didn't get that done before they paid him the 500K roster bonus. They needed the cap room, for sure. They can sign Hankins now if they want.

I don't think it's one way or the other, but both. The line definitely helps the RB but the RB helps the line as well, not rocket science. It's just like the saying, "run to set up the pass"...well, passing helps set up the run too.
Unfortunately for us, the obverse is correct too....a bad line hurts a RB and a bad RB hurts the line
..... and his dad was a Giant LOL
Ed: IMO, he's too much to hope for at pick 23. Stranger things have happened, but I'm willing to bet a few beers that the Patriots find a way to get him. Amendola and Edelman are getting old. Bob
Adams ran a 4.54 in the 40. He had a 4.32 short shuttle and 6.96 3 cone. Those are hardly numbers of a guy who doesn't have the "speed" or "range". Seeing how he wasn't even a Combine Invite and I seriously doubt his agent spent big money to send them to one of those special training programs so he could put up better numbers, I would say he is the opposite of what you were claiming.
Lenn, I hear what you're saying, but I just don't consider it nitpicking when the writers are so obviously being lazy and taking shortcuts. It too often looks patchy and thrown together as if the writer's didn't give a **** about what the viewers might think. For that reason I just can't invest myself in the characters as deeply as I'd like. I've been watching this series from the beginning, (unlike Fear the Walking Dead which I bailed on pretty early), so I do like it at some level. Interesting that you bring up Breaking Bad, another fictional series, which I would agree is one of the, if not the, best series ever. But even though that show often put the characters in quite unbelievable situations, I cared more about it, as well as the characters. I think it's because the show was so well written, and the acting so top notch, that I became emotionally invested in almost every character, every plot twist. That show never wasted anything...dialog, acting, plot, color/shading, sound, etc. Everything was perfectly thought out. Perhaps too high a standard by which to compare other shows, (except maybe Better Call Saul ). I guess bottom line, I loved Breaking Bad, I enjoy The Walking Dead when it's at its best, but all too often I do get frustrated when when I see so many missed opportunities along the way. I keep watching though.
Did you watch the episode Ed? Because there was a long dialogue explaining how Rosita hated not being to take care of herself in this new world. So, she went from man to man, picking up whatever survival skills he happened to be well versed in, until she was better at it than he was. She made herself into the ultimate apocalypse survivor. Why would any show give such a backstory to an "idiot'? Maybe the problem is NOT that the characters have been written to come across as "idiots", thus making this suicide mission more understandable, but rather that the writers have taken so many shortcuts, told so many contradictions, and - to be honest - had to deal with withering repercussions from an opening episode that was, in fact, gore filled, but also more true to the world our characters inhabit than any episode since. Bad writing doesn't make a character an "idiot". It does call into question how closely the audience has been watching since the characters first appeared. Sasha and Rosita idiots? Sure, if you want to discount every episode that they appeared in before this one. Then it makes perfect sense. Otherwise, find fault with those that wrote a script that simply makes little to no sense based on everything that has gone on before.
Also, pre-Neegan, Sasha had to be all but dragged down from the Alexandria tower, she was so determined to protect the group. So, now, even though she believes that Maggie is "the future" of Hilltop, she assigns Maggie's protection to a teen that has shown herself to disappear at the first sign of trouble? That same teen, remarkably, Sasha also believes to the future of Hilltop? Two such critical women and, yet, Sasha decides this is the opportune time to go on a suicide mission? Sasha discusses, very sensibly, taking Neegan out from a sniper position, but completely abandons the idea when the FIRST time Neegan comes outside, she doesn't have a clean shot?(which she actually did - bad editing!) Sasha and Rosita are sheltered, face no danger from walkers, and Sasha gives up after one try? Why would Sasha give up the high ground when there was no threat forcing the women to leave that spot?

Dwayne Harris can actually make more money if he averages over 10 yards per punt this season. #Giants
