Who will be the better RB for the remainder of the season? Tice is unpredictable but surely someone has a thought on this.

I think Tice goes for O. Smith as his man. Whiile Moore has speed and quickness, he lacks power.

I think Tice sees Ontario Smith as his RB of the future and wants to start grooming him for that role. Now that the suspension is served, I don't much in the way of O.Smith slowly becoming the #1 man.

It's hard to say right now. I'm hoping after this week we will have a better idea of what he is gonna do. I predict Bennet will have the best game on Monday nite

I think the fact that Tice is saying that Moore is going to continue to start even though he injured his ankle and Smith is coming back should tell you what he thinks of Moore's ability in the offense. Smith has produced nicely over his time there though. I really don't see much good coming out of having any of those backs right now until there is some set pattern of playing time.

My guess is Moore will continue to start for now w/ Bennett close behind. Bennett was slated to be the starter in the preseason before he got hurt once again. I don't think Smith will have the impact some people do.

Impossible to say right now. It does mean a lot that Moore is still named the starter even with the ankle injury. It's not like Smith lost the job to injury, he was serving a suspension for being an idiot, and I have to believe that Tice will look at that as well.

I think right now the best thing that could happen is for one RB to have an amazing game Monday (not hard against the Colts) and put this to rest one way or the other. If Moore or Smith have 150 yards + TD, that should settle it.

Go Mewelde! ;-D

well if tice has said he's going to go with moore, then he's obviousely going to play onterrio. remember last year when he said something along the lines of "mike bennett will get 25 carries this week", and he pulled i think 8? yeah, tice is the fantasy football antichrist.

haha Yeah no kidding.
If it were any other team/coach, we'd be able to trust that it was Moore getting the nod.
Since it's Tice, who knows.

I hate Tice! I have Bennet , Moore and Smith to put next to Deuce this week. I guess i'll have to sit all 3 and put D Davis in.
