How about Mewelde Moore?

The backfield is too versatile with all it's runners talents than one runner in particular, therefore making Tice more enticed to keep his gazillion headed montser rolling, rather than Moore or Bennett or Smith alone.

Look for Bennett to sit ut the majority of the carries though, taking a more moe williams role (minus the TD's) of last year.

I have both of them too but I can't decide whether to trade Bennett while his value isn't at rock-bottom or hold onto him to see what happens.


I have Holmes, Barber, Henry, Moore and Bennett. I'm just hoping Priest's injury isn't anything serious and then I might not even ever need to use anybody but Priest or Tiki.


Priest is injured? What did I miss?

Wasn't serious, just tweaked his ankle, could have gone back in but they decided to rest him with the huge lead.

I think we all need to take a moment to reflect on what a stud Mewelde Moore truly is.

In his FIRST NFL start, Moore rushed 20 times for 92 yards, and caught 12 passes for 90 yards.

In his second NFL start, Moore rushed for 109 yards on only FIFTEEN carries. He caught seven passes for 72 yards.

This week, Moore rushed for over 100 yards again (138 to be exact) on only 20 carries. He caught five passes for 30 yards.

So Minnesota's fourth string running back is averaging over SIX YARDS A CARRY and EIGHT YARDS A RECEPTION.

Moore's numbers are incredible considering how few opportunities he gets to run the ball throughout the course of the game given Tice's pass-happy offense.

Mewelde is without a doubt my best waiver-wire pickup of the year so far, I hope it continues.

Moore's averages are sick. I know all about the rule of not having a starter lose his job due to injury, but how do you even consider limiting Moores' touches after how well he's performed.

I also happened to hear an interview Moore did on FAN 590 (sports talk radio) in Toronto. He seems like a really down to earth kid with a good head on his shoulders. He has been quite humble and I hope he continues to play well.

Moore has been a great pickup for me. I only wish he would get in the endzone once in a while. With Moss and Robinson catching the fades, and that worthless vulture Moe Williams taking the one yard plunges, the only way I see Moore scoring is on a long pass or run.

Moore is this year's DD and Rudi J all rolled into one. This cat is the goods so you can count me in on the Moore bandwagon. I know alot of credit needs to go to the O-line but for goodness sakes- he makes Bennett and Williams look like they're jogging when they touch the ball.

4th round draft pick, are you kidding me? I did not see him make one mistake today... best of all, no turnover.

Yeah- I know- we're talking about the Titans D so I need to temper my excitement.
