    Re: All the haters finally get there wish.....

    I am not and have never said I dislike Bennett, AS A RB. I want to get that straight. The problem I have is that he isn't a starter IMO. He is a great situational back. He is great in space and will be good to run some sweeps and screen passes too, but can not run inside the tackles to save his life. IMO, your starting RB ABSOLUTELY needs to be a RB that can run good between the tackles. Thats MM and not Bennett.

    If we use Bennett right, he could be a huge asset to our team. Unfortunately Tice seems to want to use him in the wrong way and oversue him. Luckily it sounds like the other coaches are starting to stand up and say enough is enough with bennett and let MM have a shot.

    Bennett is only sitting as a precaution, if this was a regular season game he would definiely be in there. I did not see anyone giving Williamson or Smoot sh*t for missing a game ... everyone is so quick to hate on Bennett for no good reason.
    That said, I hope that MeMo really shines in this shot and shows that we have plenty of depth at RB even without Onterrio.

    Smoot has sat out 2 games in 4 NFL seasons and williamson hasn't played in the NFL yet, but wasn't injured in college either. I wouldn't exactly say they are in the same boat as Bennett, injury-wise.

    Yeah, but the point is, he is only sitting out as precaution, nothing else. IF it was a legitimate injury, I would understand, but it is something small that they do not want to aggrivate. That is what the preseason is for ... Sometimes people get hurt in football, sometimes they get hurt a couple of times close together ... that is how it goes. Robert Smith had this problem and everyone was saying we should get rid of him too ... they were right ... he definitely sucked.

    An injury is an injury. In Bennett's case, any injury causing him to miss any game, will stir up all this talk. That's just how it will be, until he shows he can play a full season as a #1 RB.

    This thead isn't all about bennett being hurt again, but more about MM getting a chance to preform great(not that he hasn't every time he has gotten a chance) with the #1 offense, and hopefully get through that thick head of Tice's, that he is clearly the better overall RB and should be starting, which is what the other coaches on this team are trying to tell Tice.

    haha, we do need a punter, bennett can't even punt his age and thats preety bad
    Tice said Bennett "kicked himself out of his slump" on Friday. I'm no fan of Bennett...but a 43 yard average with a long of 51 isn't exactly horrible, especially when you have that first 29 yarder thrown in there. I'd like to see somone new as our punter, but Bennett is pretty much all we got.

    Looks like it's show time.

    Now Moore must perform good enough to shine against the first stringers.
    if moore doesn't put up then alot of people may be eating crow , or we could just blame the offencive line like bennett fans.

    hopefully bennetts ok , but i still think moore can do much moore for the team.

    Bennett will be fine ... Now we can finally put this to rest. IMO Memo should be the starter, but now he finally has his chance to take over. If he has a big game against S.D. run defense, there is no question he gets the rg season opener and the job should be his to loose then. Even if Bennett is healthy, Tice cant keep kidding himself Bennett is going to be available for the whole season not hurt and give Memo the carries he needs to be the #1.

    Well it looks like I am back on as the Prez of the "you can never have too many running backs" club!!!!!!
    HEY SHOCK-O!!! :roll: :lol:

    Why do you have to be a hater if you prefer someone besides what the status quo or the logical choice is? You like who you like. I like whoever is doing the best. Bennett can do a good job, he has proved it more than once or twice. I like MeMo because he apparently can do the job a little bit better, so far. Fason may be better than both but he is hurt as well. Sometimes you need more than one "feature" back.
    It seems that all of our backs have their own "achilles heel". Memo and Fason dont have the blocking down, and from what I saw the other night neither does Bennett.
    What I hate is players not doing what the are supposed to be doing. Studying more film!!!!! (slam)
