When is Norwood going to get the start???

Postby ampant » Fri Sep 21, 2007 11:16 pm

Warrick Dunn is averaging 3 ypc. Norwood is averaging 4.5 ypc. Why am I still watching old man Dunn go nowhere with the ball? When is the younger, faster, and more talented Norwood going to get his opportunity? I am soo frustrated. Any word in ATL of Norwood getting the ball more?

It's like ATL doesn't WANT to win. Maybe they want the #1 draft pick to make up for losing Vick and trading Schaub to HOU (doh!).

Atlanta homers, let's hear the scoop.

you would do better to compare carries/touches, rather than gripe about whom is starting. i'm not looking it up. but i own norwood in a dynasty or two. from what i've seen, he's a good young player. but dunn has the experience. obviously they don't trust norwood to carry the ball 25 times a game. so they split the carries. norwood is explosive, and i think that's how they use him. for big plays, to add a bit of electricity. he can't bring that every play, so they use it sparingly. i don't know what the deal is.

Dunn has 46 carries, and Norwood has 20. Dunn has an APC of 3.5, Norwood's is 4.6. And it's every FF player's god-given right to gripe.

That's just it. That's just what I've seen from Norwood as well. And from Dunn I've seen a guy who runs into a pile of jerseys and gets nowhere. Why don't they trust Norwood. He doesn't fumble. All he does is perform. And he certainly can't bring electricity from the bench.

I think it's just the Falcons commitment to losing

Or their committment to getting Darren McFadden in the draft. That way they can continue to piss people off next year when they have McFadden and Jerious Norwood, but continue to start Warrick Dunn. ;-)

Petrino keeps saying they are going to involve him more. He has tons of potential. It seems silly to me not to use him more. I really would like to see more out of him. Norwood is probably not going to shock the league, but I could use some bye week stability in 1 of my 3 flex spots.
