    Moore in the Tice doghouse?

    How did Bennett get promoted to full time tailback? I guess I missed that news clip, maybe Moore is in trouble with Tice again?

    BS, why do they have him returning 3 punt returns.

    I just don't buy it.

    I don't think he is in the doghouse, I just think they made a decision to play Bennett and not give up on him. Also to keep people from criticizing too much.

    You can't pass block with a gimpy wrist. He is horrible at it while healthy let alone playing injured.

    We played a whole lot of max protect yesterday and rightfully so with that DE combination. Memo wasn't cut out for the job.

    I think it's easier to return 3 punts than it is to get 20 or 30 carries though. Seriously, if you think about running the ball up the middle and getting banged around getting through the offensive line that wrist would probably take quite a beating. I hope it's just the injury and he comes back from it as the full time starter.

    OK, I will buy that.

    But still, if he has an injury, why make him Return Punts when there is another guy on the team that could do it, Burly, K-Rob.........

    If he is injured, the coach sees Moore and Bennett as equally good and just wanted to save Moore from being embarrassed even more in his inability to pass protect. IDK, just seems like Tice wants Bennett.

    All you Bennett hater, Moore lovers, VIKING LOVERS, should be pulling for Bennett and I am sick of all this negativity on Bennett. If he plays well, it is a win win situation. Even for the Moore Lovers it is win win, if Bennett has a few good games, he will have more stock in a trade or interest from another team.

    Snowinapril, I totally agree with you.

    Moore is the starter and Bennet is the backup. But that's still not good enough for some. Bennet steps in for Moore yesterday and people are almost happy that he didn't get any yards. It's a team sport. I don't see what you accomplish by wishing bad for the backup.

    Additionally, this is a road game and turnovers kill. So if you have a healthy RB and a banged up RB which would you put the load on? D'oh!

    Read the article I posted SIA. It explains why he wasn't running the ball during the game from the backfield.
