    Re: Bennett....Actually looked good

    I'm really happy for Bennett. He had the type of game I was expecting to see weekly since the season began. He's not a big mouth sore loser like a lot of other players in the NFL, he took his demotion to 2nd string and special teams like a professional. He proved his worth on the field today. Let's hope he can have a few more games like this as the season goes on.
    Even babies know the difference.

    Re: Bennett....Actually looked good

    what happened today was moore of fowlers ability to pull, don't get me wrong . i was yelling as load as anyone everytime every time a viking running back got around the corner gashing for 13 yards.

    will i eat crow? sure . bennett had a effective game. but to say his blinding speed gave him an advantage over moore? ehhh , slightly , moore looked just as effective as bennett following fowler around the edge .

    what was really happening here was the vikings exposed the DE of the lions. getting great pulling to both sides .

    boy what a difference a decent pulling center makes , compared to the shambles the position was in in the begining of the season.

    Re: Bennett....Actually looked good

    Now can all you doubting Thomases quit yelling trade when it comes to Bennett?

    If you paid attention to the game, Michaels successful runs came from the outside & not up the middle.

    I've said it before & I'll say it again, with the o-line we have Bennett cannot run up the middle. He lacks the cutting moves memo has. He got stuffed more times than not trying to run up the gut, but when he went to the outside he was off! This is where his speed comes in.

    Net result 18 for 106, an avg. of 5.9 yards per carry.

    Memo 4.5 yards per carry.

    Fason 2 yards per carry, but a well deserved 1st NFL touchdown.

    It was a great rushing day for the Vikes!

    Re: Bennett....Actually looked good

    No offense, but a starting running back should be able to effectively run up the middle. Unless Bennett improves that part of his game, he will never be a featured back.

    Re: Bennett....Actually looked good

    None taken, but it is also necessary for your line to open up holes.

    When you see MB hit the pile of people in front of him, there is supposed to be an opening there for him to get through.

    Re: Bennett....Actually looked good

    I thought bennett ran rather well up the middle when he had the opportunity, he looked elusive and fast, also patient.... what did i say patient! He did a good job today.

    Re: Bennett....Actually looked good

    I think with a Healthy moore and bennett, a O-line that is gelling together now and Fason as our new Moe Williams/T.J. Duckett we've really come across a effect threesome.

    There isn't going to be a hole on every play though, you kinda expect the good backs to improvise every now and then. If a running back needs a big hole all the time to be effective he is useless.
