Colts #1 RB...who you got this season?

Postby thrash » Fri Aug 11, 2006 10:04 pm

Pretty simple, who do you think will emerge as the colts #1 RB. Will Addai impress enough this preseason to start of the year outright as the #1. Will he eventually overcome Rhodes? Or will Rhodes hold onto the job all season long. Also, how well do you think your predicted starter will do this year?

not enough info to give an inside answer. Personally I think Rhodes will start and Addai will get mop up duty when the colts are up by 21 points.

In week 1, Addai didn't come in until sometime into the 2nd quarter

Rhodes will likely begin the year as the starter. If he gets hurt or just plain stinks up the joint Addait will get his shot. Otherwise I think Indy's headed for the always popular RBBC.

Rhodes will start the season ahead of Addai, but if things don't work out, Addai might get more carries as the season progresses. Probably will end up as a RBBC.

I think it's Rhodes job to lose. If he plays decently and the Colts are winning I think he'll keep the job this year.

Maybe that's wishful thinking as a Rhodes owner but that's what I expect.

Nope, that's a solid thought there. I am high on Addai, but Rhodes is a veteran who has been patiently waiting his turn. He'll get most of the reps for this season. But Addai will take over next season, unless somethign drastic happens.
