Sorry wells, Hightower wont go away

Postby RBManiac » Tue Oct 05, 2010 1:10 pm

Beanie Wells is "definitely not pleased" with his role thus far and plans to have a discussion with coach Ken Whisenhunt about it.

He didn't enter in Week 4 until there was 10:31 left the second quarter (though he said there were only four minutes left) and received five carries on the day. In fairness to the coaches, the Cardinals were trailing by three touchdowns at halftime and couldn't afford to run the ball. Tim Hightower received seven carries. Wells received 14 carries -- three more than Hightower -- in Week 3 in his only other game this year.

This is obvious, and something that really shouldnt bug Wells. He knows Hightower stays on the field because he is simply the better Passing Down back, and blocker. They where behind...and you cant expect a team to put in less talent on passing downs, especially since Hightower is the better pass catcher too. Not like Hightower is amazing either...he is barlel and RB3 in my opinion, but even with poor production...Hightower is still out producing Wells. Im sorry, but im almost certain there will be an even time share between these two backs. They will cancel eachother out all year, and neither will be no more worthy than an RB3. I still like Hightower better. If he gets enough carries...he will produce better than wells could do to his versitility.
