    Re: Competition At Running Back

    The thing I hate about the running back by commute is the fact that it seems that when teams use it most of the time when they really need the yards in clutch situation they end up short. I think people will be pleasantly surprised when they see Taylor run this year for the Vikes. When Jamal Lewis went down Taylor really stepped up the Ravens that year.

    Re: Competition At Running Back

    I'm hoping the Moore can somehow become an everydown (or at least more durable back), and as I said in a different thread, I pray that I am wrong, but, I don't believe Taylor was a good choice. He seems to be a c to c+ back, and I believe we may end up using one of our draft choices next year on a running back due to the current situation.

    If we were able to sign a new (good) running back, Memo would be a great backup and a good change of pace, he plays with a lot of heart and seems to always give it his all. So, if he was able to be at near full stamina every time he got the ball he would be pretty destructive.

    Re: Competition At Running Back

    I like this current running back plan assuming Taylor comes in a shows he can carry the load. We did not pay for him and sign him so quickly to put him second on the depth chart, but I think Childress would drop him there if he felt Mewelde was the better option, so hopefully both players are motivated.
    I would expect Fason to be a short-yardage gainer if not just the third string back and Richardson will get a few short carries.
    They brought in Richardson, Taylor and Hutchinson to get this ground game going ... and if they do we could be in great shape.

    I would have to say the competition for the starting RB is still wide open between Taylor & Memo until the start of the regular season.

    Fason would be third on that depth chart despite that outcome, unless he's really stepped up his game since last year.

    I believe they will probably use Richardson as a short yards back myself on short & 1 or goalline stands, depending on how Taylor performs this year.
    How about a jimmy k, led by Tony or Tony led by Jimmy on "need a few yards" situations?
