to prove JJ is at least as good as, if not better than KJ.
Time for JJ to breakout!
What makes you say that?
I don't think that has even crossed Bill's mind. Fans get wrapped up into that type of conversation I don't think Bill does or most head coaches as far as that goes.
BP is a stubborn man. He always wants HIS guys to do well. JJ is one of his guys, he'll give him a chance to shine, especially when the other pick is on the other side of the field.
I don't doubt that JJ will see a lot of action I don't think Bill is in to proving a point about a draft pick vs one he passed on. I would think his focus is on defeating the Lions this weekend. Barber will also see action
I think they will split carries too.
Somethinkg like 60 - 40.
We play again on Thursday, (3rd game in 11 days) so he will use both backs since he has two.
He doesn't want to wear any one back down with another game 4 days after this one.
I think that is going to be pretty much the way it will be through out the season. There is nothing wrong with that other teams do it as well. Sometimes I think we need to put our past history aside and relize this is a different team and at least for now there is not going to be a single lead back like what we saw with Dorsett or Smith where it was expected they would carry the load in the running game.
Maybe Parcells does that last season with a team with no playoff hopes and no good backups. Definitely not this year.
I think the jury is still out on both of them.
I think it is wise to use both until, or if, either one sets himself apart from the other.
I highly doubt Bill will ride Julius as much as he did last year. There is a reason why he drafted Marion Barber III. Bill likes to mix it up with his backfield. And I don't blame him.
Let the Lions wear Kevin Jones out. I could care less. We have three capable RB's in our stable.
Oh i agree with you.
I agree that BP has no time to worry about what a RB he might have taken in the draft is doing. I think he is kind of busy with the boys.
Dallas got Spears as part of the trade they used to get Julius. Maybe Parcells is going to put Spears in at fullback to showcase both players against passing on the one Kevin Jones. He can do the same things when the Rams come to town.
i dont care if LT, priest holmes or shaun alexander is in our backfield..if we run block like we did monday night it wont matter whos in our backfield
BP is going to ride JJ to prove a point
No, he won't. He's gonna use both (possibly all 3) RBs cuz they can all do a good job.
I don't think Julius will see a lot of action this weekend, he will no doubt play, but I don't think he'll get too many carries though.
I see JJ getting 65-70% of the carries with the majority of the rest going to Barber with Thompson getting a few if any.
I dont like the sexual overtones in the title of this thread.... makes me feel icky. :
