Actually ESPN has been reporting that George was Jerry Jones' pick and Parcells didnt want him because he thought he'd hinder Julius Jones' progression. :-?

Well if that is true prolly the beginning of the end for Parcells in Dallas.

i doubt that. tuna came to Dallas to help mae the playoffs, and look back at the progress he's made from the previous season already, with a sub par offense and smaller, more anonymous players on defense.i think that george will recieve the rock more often at the start of the season, with him being the vet and proven player and all, but if, and when, he falters, jones will more than willingly step up and produce. A lot of my prediction hinders on the training camp and preseason though. You'll basically go into your draft with not much more than a gut feeling, unless it's a week before the start of the regular season, like someone's i know.

Who really knows. I don't think Parcells even knows at this point. I would watch preseason and camp pretty close down there in dallas. If i had to guess i think George is going to start of the season as the starter , but you are going to see Jones slowly start taking over as the primary back by seasons end. But again. no one really has a clue.

I am not sure that teams are going to look at 50/50 as a bad thing, even tough it is horrid for fantasy stuff.

The Patriots had running back by committee and it worked pretty well for them and the Eagles also had some success too. Having a great back is nice but two qualitybacks, like Dallas may have here, can throw off defenses w/ different schemes or even just having fresh legs ready for the whole game. As long as they don't run into money problems, I don't see it being a problem, like it was for them last year with the very weak committee that they had going on.
