Why does Denver give up on Tatem so quickly?

It seemed that Tatum had worked his way into Shanahan's doghouse early on this year, if not last season. I haven't watched today's game, so maybe there could be another reason, but I'd chalk this up to a personality clash.

I think he fumbled. That probably led to an exacerbation of his turf toes. More likely, Shanahan's toes up his turf.

Lesson # 1,230 on why you should never draft a Denver RB.

Bleh. The first time I start Tatum after his turf toes crap and he nets me a nice -1 pts.

I should have started Deuce. :-t :-t

Tatum looked terrible today, and his fumble returned for a TD didn't help him. While his stats were awful, he actually looked much worse. Mike Bell seemed to running with determination, which Tatum lacked. I can't blame MS about going with the hot hand.

It was the fumble and Mike Bell was just running alot stronger than Tatum.

yeah...I should have started Marion Barber and I would have rolled both my opponents, now I need Chad Johnson to step up. I figure if I can not get 3.5 pts from my #2 pick...I dont really deserve it anyway.

I would also like to thank Bulger and Stallworth for making this round so exciting.
