Currently I have him starting but I'm a little worried now that I see the above post about him getting cut.
Edit: I may now be starting Fargas. Check this out
3. What's the story with the running game? The first couple of weeks, it looked dangerous. Now it seems to have stalled. Don't get me wrong--I like stalled, what with my squad being positively schizophrenic defending the run and all. What do you expect out of the running game on Sunday? And who is the lead dog--LaMont Jordan? Son of Huggy Bear? Or Dominic "I Didn't Sign With Oakland To Return Kicks" Rhodes?
The bottom line with the running game is that Lane kept on running LaMont even though he was hurt.
Early on, LaMont was running like a bull in Pamplona. Everything was down hill and has was careening off of walls and running into bodies. LaMont was hitting the hole hard and fast, now, he is just running into a wall and falling down.
I don't blame him, because he is in a contract year and he wants to run. But I do blame Lane for not giving backs who were running harder and are healthier the ball.
This team would be 4-3, at least, if LaMont was told to sit and allowed to heal.
I do not blame the line. Although their pass protection is TERRIBLE, the holes have been there for the running game, as evidenced by Justin Fargas ability to run against some tough defenses.
As I said above, I expect the game plan to be a TON of running on Sunday. About a 70-30 or 80-20 mix.Fargas will carry the bulk of the load, as Lane Kiffin has already stated, and Rhodes should carry the ball about 15 times. Jordan SHOULD be unavailable until he heals, but will probably be the #2 or 3 back. http://www.silverandblackpride.com/stor ... 124940/799
