Will Barlow take over this year?

Postby psorb1 » Sat Sep 13, 2003 10:13 am

I have the feeling that I waisted a pick on Barlow. Does anyone think that he has chance to be the No. 1, or should I be shopping him?

wait it out. but bear in mind that he may not ever get the majority of the carries this year. he couldn't beat out hearst last year, nor this year in training camp...

I have a feeling the RB situation will give Barlow owners a headache all season long

I am holding onto Barlow in the hopes that Hearst will wear out or get hurt-very real possibilities says I. He should get more play in time due to his pass catching ability, He'll play come bye weeks til then.

as a former player of football,

Hearst is simply the better ball player. Hearst has good football savvy, reads the hole better, makes quicker decisions, and has a stronger drive for the game.

first don't drop him....its only week 2 man!....second the west coast offense uses more passes to the RB then actual runs...with Hearst being a great blocker and great reciever he fits this team well...and he doesn't fumble the ball as much as Barlow does...right now is Hearst's time and it will stay that way until around mid season...watch for Barlow to get tmore involved by then, but don't be fooled, they will split carries this year for the entire year....Barlows chance at a full time job is next year...esp if your in a keeper league do not drop this guy....

I'm a little curious. If you have Barlow on your bench anyway and Michael Bennett is available on waivers right now would you drop Barlow for a chance to get a dominant back like Bennett for the second half?
