    Re: Vikes RB Situation

    Is Fason really that good? Where he should start over Moore in the future? To me it looks like Bennett is our guy and MM in the future

    Wow it just doesnt end. Our running game has worked in the past. If it isnt broke don't fix it. Some say the loss of Moss will make our running game worse. There are two ways to handle that. Either you can get a better runner, or you can add a deep threat to stretch the defense. We choose to add the deep threat with Williamson. Our running backs haven't disappointed us in the past and there is no EVIDENCE, only SPECULATION that they will be worse this year.

    I don't know how you can call them unproven when they have always gotten the job done. We chose not to rely on our running game last year. That is very different from them being unreliable.

    If we would have stuck with one runner last year it would have worked better.. We will stick with Bennett and let MM come in for some touches.. Im more confident in our running game this year then any of the recent years

    Re: Vikes RB Situation

    Do you guys remember the last time Bennett was healthy going into a season and lasted the whole season as the starter??? What did he put, 1200-1300 yards??? He had Kleinsasser that year, he didn't have that luxury for the few games he started last year. According to reports that I've read, he's also the fastest he's ever been. Put him at top speed running behind arguably the best blocking back in the league, and a dominant O-line, he'll put up another 1200 yards no problem. What a lot of people are forgetting is Culpepper, not only can he keep the passing game going (he's got the weapons w/ Burleson/Robinson/Williamson/Taylor/Wiggins,etc) he's the X factor. Teams still have to worry about him running, if he puts up 300-400 yards on the ground throughout the season that will help our running backs tremendously. And there is no reason to doubt that he will.
    Yes, opponents don't have to worry about one main receiver getting all the attention from one side of the defense, but Culpepper has proved he can distribute the ball evenly and accurately.

    I say let Bennett start, if he hasn't produced well by about the 4th game of the season, go with Mewelde. But, I think Bennett will be fine, and Moe and Mewelde will provide the change of pace to keep our backfield effective and fun to watch.

    Good points! Bennett has shown he can be a pro bowl back in this offense, he had a fluke injury, tried to rush back from it and hurt himself again, he will be fine and should definitely be the starter until he loses that privelege
