Battle Confirmed Starter?

Postby mattbrennan1 » Fri Oct 21, 2011 2:51 pm

I haven't seen anything other than " he will receive more touches" since his last outing. I think it's being taken for granted that he is starting. Anyone hear for sure that he is?

Regardless of whether he starts or not, I will take it for granted that he gets a majority of the carries.

Agreed. With byes and an injury to LeGarrette Blount he'll be starting for me.

Chiefs offensive coordinator Bill Muir confirmed that Jackie Battle will be the team's feature back, at least for the time being.
Thomas Jones is going to lose his role in the offense. "We basically have a plan in terms of not equally distributing the carries," Muir admitted. "As a staff, we’ve always known (Jackie) has talent. Now that he the opportunity to carry the ball, I think that’s a significant thing." Battle is averaging 5.4 yards through his first 29 carries, and could be in line for as many as 25 totes against the Raiders on Sunday. Dexter McCluster will be a situational passing-down back moving forward. Oct 22 - 12:30 PM

Lies. Committee situation in KC must have screwed lots of guys who started Battle this week over better options, including myself. (I played him in the flex over Antonio Gates. UGH.)

He still got 16 touches..McCluster and Jones did combine for 19 but that game was well into garbage time when they started getting more work. Plus Battle at least had that long run towards the end..not a standout performance, and not thrilled that he didn't get either of the short yardage TDs, but on a bye week or if you are fighting RB injuries I guess you could do worse. He's no Demarco Murray though ;-D
