As would I. Altho perhaps Garner as well, simply due to the receiving threat. I'd have Shipp in there if I knew he was starting :-°

For now, me too. I still haven't seen Ol' Eddie sign anything though, and if he somehow goes away I'd have to replace one with Brown. Sadly enough, it would probably be Thomas.

Id probably take all 3 Jones, but I think some big things may come out of TJ Duckett this year after a solid year before. I dont buy into the Charlie Garner-Jon Gruden thing; Garner had his best year with Calahan coaching. The only thing Garner-Gruden proves to me is that it will be a RBBC just like in Oakland.

The clear cut number #1 of this group is Julius Jones. Out of all the guys your listed, J.J. is the only one that is sure to see a lot of touches this year. Every single one of the other guys has a credible backup behind them this year or is in a RBBC (in some cases, the player you listed IS the credible backup). Dallas ran the ball a ton last year and I don't see that changing with Quincy Carter starting at QB again this year. Keyshawn Johnson is not suddenly going to pull 150 receptions out of his ass.

JJ
KJ
Garner

Julius Jones. Was handed the starting job as soon as Hambrick was cut. Parcells' philosophy is that the entire offense works if the running game is working. JJ will get his share of carries.

Kevin Jones. DOn't be scared of RBBC here. The Lions' brass is falling just short of comparing KJ to Barry Sanders, and if KJ can improve his hands and route running, there is no way Artose Pinner's 2.5 YPC is going to beat out Kevin.

Garner. Garner's perfectly suited for this offense that throws the ball ALL the time. Alstott's old, and Pittman's suspended to start the season, and Garner's going to be touching the ball alot, whether it be running or receiving.

I've got to rule out Thomas Jones because of Anthony Thomas. I've got to rule out Shipp because as of now, EMmitt's the starter, and even if that changes, what exactly did Shipp do last season when he was starting to make anyone think he can be a decent running back? The other guys have WAY more upside than Shipp, even if Shipp's starting.

Dennis Green is a pass-first coach. Shipp's a bust.

Im actually pretty shocked by the responses on this thread. I am certainly not saying everyone should agree with me, but man there are some interesting ideas going around.

Buckhalter? Someone actually has Buckhalter before TJones?

First of all TJones - by all reports Ive seen - will get the vast majority of touches in CHI. This is hardly a RBBC situation - certainly not to the extent as it will be with Garner/Pittman/Alstott in TB.

JJ is in the same situation Hambrick was in last yr. Whats the difference between the two? Talent? Give me a break. JJ WILL NOT see 1000 yds this yr. He is being way overhyped by fantasy people salivating over anyone who wont be in a RBBC.

Stick a fork in T. Jones, he's done. He's one of those guys that gets chance after chance because he's a good athlete, but doesn't have what it takes to be a running back.

The difference is... Hambrick was inherited by Parcells and Carthon. Jones is the guy Carthon wanted Parcells to draft, just like he wanted Parcells to draft Martin in 95. Am I comparing the two? Certainly not, but I trust Carthon knows a thing or two about evaluating running back talent. We all know there are just some people who are really good at finding value where most scouts/teams see nothing.
