    No Jersey Selected

    Different kind of back, different skill set. Wouldn't have mattered. The only concern is lack of depth: Maroney couldn't step into Faulk's role.

    The aformentioned Mewelde Moore, who unfortunately is not available, would have been a more desirable replacement.

    BTW why are you bumping every thread you see? Take it easy.

    Hello All.. First time poster so take it easy on me..

    Need some help..

    Which RB do you think is going to get more carries/yards this week against the Bills... F.Taylor of BGE?

    I'm thinking Taylor's toe may limit him, but I don't want to sit F.Taylor if he is gonna be the starting back.

    Please Help.

    expect more TE passing situations..... Pats will air it out a lot... even despite the Bills Secondary.:cool:

    #11 Jersey

    Fred Taylor will get more yards.

    Disable Jersey

    Taylor was on WEEI and said that he felt pretty good, so let's hope that means that he'll be healthy for the game.

    No running game is why the offense is si predictable in the second half. the best weapon you can get for Brady and the defense is a running game.

    I think BJGE got a lot of carries the 1st two games partly because he was being rewarded for his work ethic (sounds like he worked hard in TC even though he came in 5th on the depth chart), and partly because BB was trying to limit Morris's carries due to age and wanted him to be fresh later in the season.

    Morris is best suited to take over Faulk's role (and should IMO), so I think we'll be seeing basically a two man RBBC with Fred Taylor and BJGE :eek:
    Although how gret would it be if Woodhead could become the fast, elusive homerun threat that we are sorely missing now?

    Would have made ZERO difference other than another RB on the roster

    Its not like he has made a difference in any games the past 4 years,why would it be different now?

    Maroney moves up the roster this weekend vs. the Colts as 2nd in line behind Buckhalter since Knowshon Moreno is out.

    There will be lot of threads on the health and aviolability of either Taylor or Morris before lots of games.
