Thought I would post this so the Barlow bashers could have a field day.
Unfortunately for me I may have to start him in week 14 if Holmes is back. I am one of the people hoping that Priest is done because I picked up Blaylock.
Blaylock splitting carries is still better than Barlow.
49ers' head coach Dennis Erickson said Monday that running back Kevan Barlow will start on Sunday against the Rams, according to the Mercury News. Barlow has been losing carries to backup Maurice Hicks over the last two weeks, but Erickson intends to stick with Barlow, who seems to be growing frustrated with his lack of playing time. Barlow told the Mercury News on Monday that he lacks the freedom in the offense he had a year ago when he rushed for 1,024 yards as a part-time player. He said he simply runs where he is told to run "because if I don't do what the coaches tell me to do, I'm not coachable." Barlow had nine carries for 20 yards in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.
