Marion Barber 3>Julius Jones?

Postby DbacksAllTheWay » Mon Nov 20, 2006 8:16 pm

So far, Barber has performed better than Jones in pretty much every scoring system. Is it time to make him a must start and better play over JJ?

i would rather start marion than julius. parcells likes him more, and has been saying marion will see more carries in the future...do you remember how he did when julius was injured last year??? marion could be a stud RB if he carried the load.

Jones could be a stud if he got goalline carries. Think of his numbers if 6 of those TDs Marion has are his?

This RBBC is working and it's working great. BP wont change it.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

JJ has had opportunities at the goal line, but he has gotten stuffed on several occasions. Barber is the better weekly play because he scores often and puts up respectable yardage totals. If JJ suffers what has been his annual injury, Barber could be a stud.

Earlier in the season, Parcells gave JJ goalines opportunities, and JJ couldn't punch them in. Now, Parcells doesn't think twice about switching to Barber. Seems like the only way JJ will hit paydirt again is if he breaks one.

Barber III doesn't have what it takes to be an every down back. He'd be pretty good for the first few games, but he'd wear down. He's just not quick enough. Dallas has one of the worts O-Line and you either have to get past the line quick (like JJ) or plow through the line (like Barber III).

Julius is either busted in the backfield for -1 or -2 yrds, or makes one guy miss and makes a 8 or 10 yrd gain. Barber just runs straight through people. For that reason, Barber would get tired after 7 or 8 games.

The method they have right now works best.

And in my league, J.Jones has more FF points.

You can't say Barber would get tired after 7-8 games...the guy carried the rock a ton in college. I'd much rather Marion get the full load then JJ..Barber proved what he could do last year when given the opportunity. He's also got a nose for the end-zone could be a fantasy stud..but JJ is in the way.

Actually, Barber was in a RBBC in college with Maroney..and while he still racked up a ton of carries...Minnesota was a run-heavy team...

I would doubt that Barber could handle the load for a full-season...not only would he have to have the same number of carries per game he had in college (for 16 games), but he would also have to spend a lot of energy on passing downs either running routes or blocking (he definitely isn't used to having to carry a full load in terms of blocking, route-running, and and running the ball).

I think Barber is the better back. What's with the skeptisism with him handling the load? W Parker wasn't supposed to handle the load either, or score TD's. FWP didn't even hardly play in college. The only way to know if someone can handle it is to give it to him.
