You know whom Shaun Alexander reminded me of this year? Julius Jones. You know, the running back the Dallas Cowboys decided not to sign because he can’t break tackles, find the holes, or stay on his feet? Yeah, that’s him.
I have no link, no rumor, no story to show you that says the Cowboys are even remotely interested in this guy. But I wanted to make my statement now before the rumors do start, because I am sure they will.
Alexander is over the hill. He will never be a good running back in the NFL ever again. He’s done. Finished. Bye bye.
He rushed for only 700 yards this past season. Yeah, he was injured, but he always will be if he decides to continue playing. He went from an incredible 27 touchdowns in 2005 to 4 in 2007. If that is not a sure sign of career death, I don’t know what is.
So, let’s not report any of the Alexander rumors here, folks. It could jinx us. We don’t want him. He should just retire. He had a great career. Get the hell out of the NFL before your legs fall off.
