    Our deep RB pool...

    Our back situation is confusing....i loved bennett but like you guys said....its almost like hes scared to run the ball hard...I dont think he'll ever be the same....ya R-smith was injuried early in his career...but that was R-smith....thats him we have no idea what bennett will do....he could be the Ryan leaf of RB's.....who knows...i think we need to trade a back and draft one

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Our deep RB pool...

    I think we should keep all our RB's and go into more of a 2 back offense. We can run out of those sets, which is what all the teams are expecting us to do, but we can also run alot of screens and short flare passes in the flats from those sets also. Much like the old days with Sir Francis at QB!! Bennet, Smith, and Moore can all catch, and are all very hard to bring down in the open field, so the key for us will be to spring them open on the outside as much as we can. Defenses will have to start bringing their corners up to support the line, and when they do, we can go verticale to the WR's.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to slide into it broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming at the top of your lungs......

    If they decide to be a run 1st pass later team that would be the common sense thing to do. But I have a feeling they will still like to utilize the pass as much as they have in the past. That puts the ball in Peppers hands longer and gives him the option to run/pass, what have you.

    I expect a LOT of 3-5 yard passess this year at least at first. And I doubt they will run 2 backs like that UNLESS they plan on baseing the offense on running. Which I hope they do, I just dont see it happeneing.

    Our deep RB pool...

    When moore was starting,we had a running game.(i had him on my fantasy team, he was good for 100 yards most games but no td's)
    When moore got hurt our running game disapeared?
    Was it because he was lucky, and got to run on bad run defenses? hmmmmmmmm
    Smith is too inconsistent,looks good one week, and bad the next,and can he stay away from the cheeba?
    bennett is a injury waiting to happen.
    just my 2 cents.

    let them battle it out during training and mini camps. Then we will know who the best quality and starting back for next season will be. We don't need to be worrying about this now. I bet the dolphins would kill to be in the situatuation we are in yet we are complaining.

    Let's worry about the draft and our D-- our biggest need.

    Our deep RB pool...

    ontero smith is my pick for the starting job and i agree with the intial post that moore could easily be our #4 or #5 receiver. i really like thguy. however, even though loney said they will feature a back i have feeling that it will be a discussion all next year and we will plit the time again. bennett is a baby when it comes to playing time.

    trading one of them: bennett or smith will help this team out realistically.

    Onterrio Smith even though he's in a little trouble off the field seems to be the best back consistently (s.p). Moore looked good in the games he was in but it took him forever to get back after his injury. Bennett just is too inconsistent for me, he'll have a great game and then dissappear the next and/or get injuried

    And also getting rid of Bennett would just get rid of another whiner who cries when he doesn't get any playing time, even if someone else out there is tearing it up for us

    You can never have too many RBs. They get knocked around a lot as it is a high risk injury-prone position. A Bennett trade and then picking up a rookie RB from the draft (which is deep in RB talent) would have us set for a few years. It makes sense because he's an injury waiting to happen and we should trade him while we can still get something.

    However, if we don't trade him, we should go with the more durable Smith as the feature back and have Bennett line up as a receiver to go deep with his speed a la Westbrook. Moore can continue with his special teams duties where he has been very good. Moe can be our short yardage specialist.

    When our backup RBs are this good, let's find something for them to do other than warming the bench!

    It doesnt matter who we have back there honestly. They have all proven they can, at one point, get the job done... Why? Because of our offensive line, and our ability to pass the ball.

    The problem I hate with Bennett is if there isnt a hole there to run through, he just puts his head down and runs into 300 pound + defensive lineman. He NEEDS the hole.

    Unfortunately, I wasnt able to see MM play due to being at the biggest beach ive ever seen. From what ive heard he has very poor blocking skills in pass pro. But is a very good target out of the backfield.

    The reason why I believe we should stick with Onterrio is that he finishes runs. He hits the hole hard, and if its not there, he creates and makes plays. He is also the most durable of the backs and I think that is what we need. Consistancy. He is the least likely to break down and I believe he can get the job done.
