    Re: Who do you want starting at RB?

    It may slow MB down a bit when he has pads on, but OS has to deal with pads AND a prosthetic wiener under his uniform. That would slow anybody down.

    Coach Tice will inevitably start MB but will eventually revert to a "running back by committee" setup throughout the year. It's his style.

    Re: Who do you want starting at RB?

    I want Bennett to start unless he perfroms badly in camp and loses the job. I like Bennett because he gives us a home run threat on any play the he touches the ball. However, if Bennett is not the man I want to see a combination Moore and Fason because I think they are our best options at this time.

    Pigskin, solid feedback. I think you are right that MB showed some leg drive last year but it was only for one game. If he can learn to get by the studder-stepping he does behind the line of scrimmage he may very well be a good back. Until then, he is no better than average. He does receive well out of the backfield. I will give him that over OS. I can't see him at this point, being a better runner than OS. MB has good speed without pads. With pads I've seen him get run down by LBs and CBs. Pads can make a difference sometimes. I still go with OS but you have great points.

    The only time he got ran down was against green bay when he had that 60yrd run and a corner caught him because he wasnt able to get to full speed because he was avoidind people.He has never been ran down.

    Remember that speed means nothing unless you get past the line of scrimmage. Leg drive is important. MM showed awesome talent last year but unless his physical conditioning is improved he's not ready to be a featured back. He grows weary in the 4th qtr. OS has showed skills as a runner and receiver. I am in no way condoning his marijuana use but remember when the NFL tests people they have their pants down to their knees and shirts are lifted so there is no way you can hide a fake wizzer and get away with it. He is stupid for even having it still. C4 is to new to decide yet although I really like that pick. MW is awesome no matter how much spped he has. He is solid for 120 + yards every game in total yards if he starts. Look at Viking records when MW starts compared to MB. Vikes win a lot more because he is an all around back that knows the game. MB doesn't understand when to hit holes yet. To me, if he is still around OS is our best back to start.

    They need to let M. Moore start since M.Bennet hasn't been doing jack and always gets hurt. We had a fresh start during the offseason and we need a fresh start at RB. I know tice had a problem with M.Moore's pass blocking and I hope that they work on that during this off season.

    Mark, he has been ran down before. Consider this: if you have a 60 yard run there shouldn't be any kind of avoidance factor unless you create it yourself. Runs of more than 3 yards are few and far in between for Bennett.

    I like Bennett, he has that amazing break away speed and he may have been ran down but it is going to happen very rarely. I just think if he was more dependable and not injured he would be able to show he has what it takes.

    Re: Who do you want starting at RB?

    I'm not a big fan on MB because he isn't consistant (not only running, but with his injuries too). I think the Vikes would be good with OS and MM as a 1,2 punch. I have no clue what Fason brings to the table, so we'll have to wait and see.

    Re: Who do you want starting at RB?

    Amen to Swamination. You got your role on dude. People are high on Bennett because of his speed so we probably could get a good deal by trading him. He is a FA next year so why not? I want to re-iterate I like MB but he is just too inconsistent to be a star back (atleast from the past). Maybe he has turned over a new leaf this year. Who knows? I know this isn't fantasy league but doesn't anyone think the same as me here? Besides three good runs and one good game against the Pack, what has MB really done? I will say he is a team player which is a good quality. He does have decent speed but you have to get by the front line before the speed is utilized.

    Bennett has the job to lose. And for all the trade
    Bennett people, the same trade Robert Smith people.
    Anyone remember Robert?? I think Bennett has the
    same type of potential. We are not trading him
    this year so lets see what he can do. My prediction
    is 1500 for Michael.
