Now that Jackie Battle has the starting job should I start him or Donald Brown?

No way SD doesn't feed Mathews the ball!! Battle's yards per carry are much lower than Mathews and Mathews hasn't had a chance to get in a rythm yet. This week they will dose Mathews often in both the run and pass! Battle may get a TD but thats it. With that said, Brown will not be getting many touches after the 1st or 2nd quarter so a TD from Battle is better than what you will get with Brown!

I disagree. Sit Battle. Start Brown. The colts will do their best to keep the ball away from Arodg by running the ball.

Thanks for the help earlier. I would wait on Battle. Reports are saying they're using Battle to get Mathews to do better.

Packers Run defense isn't great, and Brown will get the ball. Battle could be something you want to hold onto, but I don't know what the heck they are doing in SD. He could get 6 carries or 26.

start battle. indy might want to run to keep the ball from rodgers but are they really going to succeed in pounding the ball for first downs against clay mathews and company??? ryan mathews is still in the doghouse for fumbling. he will get the ball between the 20s but until he proves him self battle will get all the goal line work. NO defense has been getting ripped apart. im sure there will be enough for both SD backs in that game

Thanks for your help with mine. If I am you, I wait a week on Battle and start Brown. The whole battle/mathews thing is looking like it might just be a ploy to send a strong message to Mathews not to fumble anymore and that he is still the starting back even if the roster doesn't say so.
