    Re: Who will start at RB for Vikes?

    Yeah he does seem to get banged up, they need to put bennett in on pass plays for pass protection and outside runs, thats when bennett's at his best. Just to give more a breather, take some of those hits off of him. Then again i want him in the game all the time but injuries are part of the game.

    Re: Who will start at RB for Vikes?

    I think Moore is much more durable than most think.....he has a bad wrap because of the injury he sustained last year - a high ankle sprain - there is not much you can do with that......

    Every time Robert Smith used to carry the ball I used to get nervous.....we sure had a lot of patience with him and he had a nice career.

    Bennet can't start. I heard he had a hangnail and will be out for weeks.

    Seriously, it is good to hear that there is finally a RB that can play through some minor injuries. Mewelde will have another 100+ game.

    Ciatrick hasn't shown diddly either. if moore doesn't start our line really needs to step up and give Bennet some running room on the sweeps.

    Last I heard, Mewelde Moore had two sprained ankles. I've heard nothing about this and if it's been discussed, please just link me to the thread and lock this one.

    But anyways, does anybody know who will start at RB for us this week against the Browns? If Moore can't, I hope we don't start Bennett. Give Fason his shot finally.
    Ive seen someone "break ankles" with a nasty cut, but not their own.

    i don't think it matters who we have in the backfield. it has to do with the line and the play calling we choose to use. if we use Bennett like we did against the Lions we should be alright. if moore is back there and we give him the ball he'll get the yards if the line does it job. it all goes back to our o-line.

    Thanks Josdin

    The key will be having Fowler back........he was great on those Packer sweeps we ran against the Lions allowing bennett to stretch and get outside. But against the Browns 3-4 defense, Moore will be more effective because he is a little more north & south.

    Re: Who will start at RB for Vikes?

    I'm just going to wish that the new line changes work for us...

    If the line plays like it did in the second half of the GB game, we should be fine, MM should be up for another 100 plus yard rushing game if the line can play well....


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.
