    with the possibility of cutting A-Train. I for one would love this guy to make the team, but if he gets cut so be it. I heard Spags and Jones downing the idea of having 2 rookies backing up JJ. Wasn't JJ a rookie that everybody was counting on to make a splash. Barber has played against very high caliber talent in the Big 11. Wouldn't this also be the same position we were in last season at the end of the year? If JJ goes down(knocking on wood), what difference would it be when last year, George couldn't get it done and Anderson got hurt. We had to turn to a rookie to pick up the slack, JJ. We had success turning to a rookie last season, I don't see why we can't have the same fortune if we have to revert to another rookie this season.

    I tend to agree with you.

    It would be one thing if this team were 2 players away from SB contention. But the fact is that there are still to many questions on this team to seriously consider them to be an elite team.

    And with that being the case, I would lean towards keeping rookies with high potential vs veterans with limited potential.

    I think we should just carry the best backs, even if the two back ups are rookies.

    RB is one of the easier positions for a rookie to master...so it wouldn't concern me as much as many other back up positions.

    Or we could just keep 4 RB's since they are all more talented than Polite.

    Because you haven't seen something we should start cutting people?

    Wonderful justifacation.

    Guess that means buh-bye to Spears, Ware, Beriault as well.

    Parcells likes experience, but as long as Thompson and Barber both hold onto the ball and don't get a QB killed in blitz pick up, I think he'll go young and versatile.

    We have too much competition on both lines, LB, DB, WR, FB/TE for us to focus on experience at back up RB.

    The best players that can do the most things will get the job, and right now that is Jones, Thompson, Barber and Polite and I think that is what the final 53 will show.

    I'd bet that we will be trying to shop A-Train after Monday's game if Thompson, Barber and Polite play well.

    relax. im not the gm. i just play one on tv. i was trying to say that if we had to choose two backs out thomas, thompson and barber that barber would be the odd man out. thats all. but we still have 3 more games before bill has to make that decision and in all likeliyhood he ll keep all 3 of them since the 2 rookies have potential. i just dont want to part ways with thomas as the original poster was trying to imply would be the case
