Whats up with the RB situation in Minny?

Postby allmotorjunkie » Thu Sep 25, 2003 2:41 am

Is Doug Chapman making a comeback or is Moe Williams still considered the starter?

It's all about Moe...averaging more than 5 yards per carry...picking up the blitz...it's all about Moe.
Baseball players are smarter than football players. How often do you see a baseball team penalized for too many men on the field?

I am a big Viking fan (the only reason I have a falcons logo, is that it looks cool!) and I can tell you with confidence that Doug will never be healthy. Every time he gets better, he gets hurt again. Moe will be the starter until Bennett comes back, or Onterrio Smith turns it on...

Last I heard Chapman is listed as probable, but regardless of whether chapman or Smith get carries, at the goal line Moe's the Man

I don't care How cool other team logos look, I bleed purple and that's the only logo for me ;-D

Moe is the man. Until Bennett comes back, Moe will see almost everything except garbage time. Then, Onterrio will get some experience points.

Chapman is pretty much worthless. Onterrio might be too, but I expect with Culpepper ailing the Vikings will run more. I have heard Tice say he really doesn't want to use Moe all the time, he doesn't really think Moe is a guy you should give the ball to 20+ times a game. He isn't real big, and there is concern he may soon hit a wall.

Onterrio might get a few more opportunities the next copule weeks. I think these next couple games will go a long way in determing Onterrio's value the rest of the year. Chapman will still be worthless barring injury.

In our league we can carry 4 RB's. I'm thinking about cutting Onterrio Smith and picking up Michael Bennett for the second half of the season.

Do it. There's no way Tice will replace a guy he trusts who's playing great like Moe to give PT to a rookie who just might be "uncoachable" (Smith.) But once Bennett is healthy he should get the job back from Moe.

Untill Bennet is played Moe will get the bulk of the carrys and with the huge offensive line the vikes have, he will be very productive. Chapman is liable to hurt himself sitting on the bench. Bennet is a good pickup for the 2nd half of the season
