Just when LT seemed to get going..He may hit a dry spell

Postby kemper5 » Fri Nov 02, 2007 3:53 pm

His next 4 opponents are

Minny
Ind
Jax
Balt


I think we may see a line close to 250-280 rushing yards and 2 TD's after this stretch. What do you think? A # 2 and # 3 ranked Rush D and two top 13 ranked Rush D's..

MINN's rush D is a little inflated, IMO. Playing the Bears and the Pack and the Lions before you get KJ up and running will do that.

I hate to sound like a hater on the MINN thing... actually I don't care if I do, because I do hate the Viqueens, but look at this:

Week 1: Atlanta (Dunn is not running well, the team is not playing well)
Week 2: Detroit (Tatum Bell... no KJ. No run game at all)
Week 3: KC (Before LJ started to turn it on AT ALL)
Week 4: Green Bay (NO RUN GAME AT ALL at this point)
Week 5: Bye
Week 6: Chicago (Cedric put up about his year average number on them. And look how great Cedric is this year)
Week 7: Dallas (MBIII put up 96 yards on them, even in a bad game, and even splitting carries. Put up about 5 YPC... only 19 carries, and 96 yards.)
Week 8: Philly (They stopped Westbrook... who still scored on them.)

If anyone sits LT, that person is certifiable. The Vikings have a good run D. But its rating against the league is a product of the crap it's faced for the most part. It is NOT going to shut LT down. Mahk my woids.

LT can catch and he's gonna get involved one way or another and will put up respeectable numbers. Remember he can throw to so he may get a TD that way. LT is too good to sit

How about last year when they finished as the 2nd best run D of all-time? Was that just a product of playing weak run teams? They're an elite run-stopping unit thanks to their d-tackles. LT shouldn't be benched because he is going to produce somehow, but I wouldn't expect 100 yards from him.

"what have you done for me lately?"

This year has not been that remarkable. That's the point.

LT just has too much potential to sit any given week for me, in that offense he still has a chance to score every td they score that game, his bad game is 10 points, good game is 30, I would feel sick to my stomach if I lost be benching LT

*disclaimer*

Thats only for this year, after this, I think we should all expect some sort of decline in production, he still may be a top 5 back next year but with age and carries its going to happen at some point, but this year I couldnt see benching him vs anyone

I still think he may not average more than 50-70 rush yards a game and get 2 TD's out of the next few weeks. Yes he scored at Min, however they kept him waaaay in check. Id never bench him however he is a shell of what he produced through 8 games last year. I would not be surprised to see a 1300 rush, 13 TD (Rush,Rec and Throw) season from him
