    That's a 5 yard per carry average.

    How many receiving yards did he have in those same 5 games?
    Does it matter?

    Is he a WR or a RB?

    Yes it matters. You need a RB to be able to catch the ball to give veratility to the types of plays they call, especially if all the receivers are covered & the QB needs to check down to him.

    Career Receiving yard avg.

    Memo: 9.5 in 3 years (110 for 1,045)
    Taylor: 7.0 in 5 years (147 for 1,025)
    Peterson: 8.2 in 3 years (24 for 198)

    What does his average look like over his career?
    Career Rushing yard avg.

    Memo: 4.8 in 3 years (244 for 1,172)
    Taylor: 4.2 in 5 years (676 for 2,815)
    Peterson: 5.4 in 3 years (747 for 4,045)

    How many games has he missed due to injury?
    Games they were not active for due to injury or being made inactive by coach:

    Memo: 6 in 3 years (All in 2004)
    Taylor: 3 in 5 years (1 in 2002, 2005 & 2006)
    Peterson: 9 in 3 years (2 in 2005 & 7 in 2006)

    Most important thing to consider is do we need him on this roster if the coaching staff can't rely on him to be healthy or produce.
    Yes, we need him for depth at the RB & for what he brings to the field as the stats show. Memo is also our return man on punt returns.

    He has also played more games in the last 3 years missing 6 of 48 (12%), while Peterson didn't finish his last two seasons, missing 2 games in 2005 & 7 last year for 9 of 39 (23%).

    If the number of games missed is so important to you, then you shouled also be questioning why we drafted Peterson.

    Taylor is more of an every down back than Memo is IMO, but Memo does have a lot to offer.

    There is no reason we need to unload him at this point & we should be keeping him as our 3rd RB.

    Pinner or Fason are two of the RB's I wouldn't mind be let go before Memo. Fason had a good year last year with a 5.5 yard average, but in 2005 he only averaged 1.9.

    http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/410449
    Can't argue with stats but I think that the reason that Fason only had a 1.9 yard average in 2005 was because he was used mostly at the goaline.

    I would much rather see us get rid of either Pinner or Fason before Memo. Memo bring allot of versatility to the table and is great with draws and screen plays. I always thought of him as almost delicate and I think he was used right last year. I don't think he has what it takes to be a full time carrier in Childress's style of offense which requires a RB with more power. [size=10pt]Memo has an elusive running style, he would much rather try and pull a move then run over a defender.[/size] I think he is a great change up to Peterson and Taylors style.

    Unfortunatly I think he won't be happy with his lesser role with Peterson in there so he will probably be let go next year so he can go to a team that will give him more chances.
    I agree.

    Check out this video clip and tell me how many Bears players he eludes to score the TD.

    Five.
    And the sixth one got him too late.
    Good job, Memo.

    I recall he was used on more than just the goaline in 2005 with little to show for it, but mostly near the goaline. He put in 4 TD's that year but the one that sticks out the most was when we were on or near the 1 & they gave him the ball 3 or 4 times in a row & he failed to punch it in.



    He certainly didnt look real impressive. But its harder to gain yards in the redzone, makes the playing field much shorter

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    Re: Mewelde Moore says he's up for challenge

    Moore fans, enjoy this season.
    It is my guess that he is not with the Vikings next year.
    He may not even make it through this year.
    We have depth at RB, and I could see us shopping him around to attempt to fill some other need.

    Just my thoughts

    He, pretty much, made half of the Bears Defense look ridiculous. 8)

    fason stinks.
    he doesn't play a big enough role on special teams and with the petersen now what role will he play?
    unless we let memo go, which doesn't make much sense to me cuz he still provides us with something, i can't see fason making the team.
    how many backs do they keep active every week anyway?
    even taking into account if they are a return specialist like memo.
    and pinner too, he gives us depth, another guy who can catch the ball outta the backfield and a guy who can return kicks.

    MM's best chance of sticking with the team down the road will be doing special things on special teams.
    Taking a couple of kickoffs or punts to the house would help, and be really cool.......

    well he probably wont last past this year, but hes under contract and though you might be able to get something for him it wont be anything special unless someone is desperate for a running back.
    he can still play an important role for this years team even if he doesn't last past this year.
    i still believe he will play a role on 3rd downs, unless petersen just takes that role all together and even so he is our only proven return man right now.
    and at least we know if something happens to the big 2 he will still be a solid backup.
    a faith i have more so than with fason and pinner who are both probably just one week wonders at best.
    lets just hope our line is so sick that my fat ass could be busting off 30 yard runs.

    Re: Mewelde Moore says he's up for challenge

    I like Memo...but he won't get many carries with CT and AP in the backfield (and they WILL both stay healthy this season).
    Therefore, for him to get any real opportunities, he will most likely have to go elsewhere.
    I hope that he impresses on punt returns this season though!
