[quote=Canacuna]"Mooch has had a tendency over the last few years of going with a RBBC. Detroit has Artose Pinner, Shawn Bryson, and Olandis Gary on the roster still. Pinner is talented and Bryson/Gary are serviceable. There will likely be a RBBC in Detroit - and that is why Julius Jones is ranked high than him. Who is going to take carries away from him? Aside from Richie Anderson on third down, no one - unless you think Aveion Cason is a threat.
I keep hearing things about Mooch and I keep hearing things about Barlow. First off I hear that Barlow shouldn't be regarded that high because he couldn't shake off Hearst. He had his good games against poor teams last year etc. Then I hear that Mooch liked to play the RBBC. Well which is it? Either Barlow is not that good or Mooch liked the RBBC. Perhaps its both but I think it has to be one or the other and I wouldn't mind getting a consensus on which one it was
If it was Mooch, then I wouldn't be surprised to see a RBBC in Det. If it was Barlow then unless Kevin and Bryson and all their other backs turn out to be miraculously even...well we will just have to see wont we
As far as JuliusI would also rank him higher than Kevin for this very reason. We really dont know if it was Mooch or if it was Barlow at this point. Even still, after this season since niners passing game is probably going to be something like Baltimores last season :( there will be a lot of stacking against Barlow. The only thing we really have to judge is what we see when the Det backs share their time (if they do) who just out produces the others.
