    Kiss your money goodbye. They will use both backs in the backfield at the same time by the 4th game.

    Or are you not counting that?
    Kind of. its more of who will have more carries. Or like deuce was starting over Reggie Bush but they were both in the backfield at the same time

    Then it's more like who's going to get more carries, not who's going to start.

    Sorry, but for an example, if AD get's 40% of the carries & C-Tay get's 50% & the coach is swicthing off between them or using them both at the same time, they are both starters & you should lose your bet.

    Just because he may not be the go-to-guy all the time with the ball, doesn't mean he's not a starter.

    That's kind of like saying Williamson wasn't a starter because Taylor caught more passes than T-Will.

    Re: Are Peterson & Taylor the new Maroney & Dillon

    Even though they'll both be out on the field at the same time doesn't mean that either of them will get the ball.
    At some point (most likely earlier than later), T-Jack and the recievers throw it to Shiancoe will have to be tested.

    On a related subject, does anyone know how well AP can throw the ball?

    Are Peterson & Taylor the new Maroney & Dillon--They will be better. Dillon was real slow by the time he got to the Patriots.

    Re: Are Peterson & Taylor the new Maroney & Dillon

    I dont believe this but some believe them to be the next Phodes and Addai on account the Taylor will be released at the end of this season. What do you think. Is it possible. I like Taylor so I hope not
