Whatcha talkin' 'bout, Willis (McGahee)?

Nobody's talking about Brandon Bennett, they were talking about Michael.

But since we're on the topic, no, you should not be picking up Brandon Bennett. He's aweful, and the only reason Rudi Johnson didn't get any carries the first 3 games is because he was injured. Unless Dick LeBlow starts coaching again, stick with Rudi.

Yeah, management wants McGahee in there. They'd love to see their first round pick out doing damage on the field.

Plus, despite Henry's TD's, he's been somewhat ineffective in 2003 so far, and now he's banged up.

Odds are Henry will remain the man all year, but upper management wants McGahee out there, we all know what he can do, and Henry's banged up/ineffective. That makes McGahee a sexy pick up and a must have for Henry owners!

I replied this on another McGahee Post.

I plan on picking him up, but just because I have Henry on my squad and I can afford a dead roster spot with my team. I personally am not expecting much out of him. But just in case, I'll have him.

Willis is a first round pick. Buffalo started the RB controversy when they drafted him. You do not pick someone in the first round if you want them riding the pine. Especially an explosive RB like McGahee.

I agree picking willis is a good move if your roster has space, as mine does. But, Micahel Bennet is availabel as well, who would be a better pick up?

Rider on the thread

QB Ramsey, Plummer, Warner
RB S. Davis, E. James, S. Bryson, L. Betts
WR A. Johnson,Booker,Muhammad, Campbell, Boston
TE Bubba
K Feely
D/st Washington

Bennett. He's supposed to be back by early November and the #1 job is waiting for him. If you've been watching Minnesotta, there starting to spread the ball around to Smith more and Chapman may even get some carries.

That sends a pretty clear signal out that despite how good Williams is playing he isn't THE MAN in Minesotta until Bennett returns (unlike, for example Gordon being THE MAN in St. Louis until Faulk returns)
