Barlow 1500 yd goal?

Postby SwiperNoSwiping » Fri Aug 13, 2004 10:05 pm

You all think this is reachable? He had 1060 yds in 4 starts last year. With a full season, but less talent around him, can this be done?

Maybe rushing and receiving combined... he'll be productive provided he stays healthy, but teams will put 8 in the box and make Rattay beat them...

12 team, H2H, hyper-performance, keeper (5)

Start 9: QB, 1/2RB, 2/3/4WR, 1/2TE, K, D/ST

Keepers: Deuce, Rudi, CJ, Plax, Foster

1500 yards combined should be no trouble whatsoever. Don't forget, he's not just going to rush the ball and get touches that way, he's going to be the focal point of the offense and should figure to have at least 4 passes thrown his way each game.

He will definetly reach this total if he stays healthy. There is no single other back worthy of being put on the field in San Fran. I realize he will be the top threat on the defenses agenda, but really, every other back on the 49ers team is terrible. I would definetly take roger craig as backup incase barlow goes down.

Add to the negative column that his fullback Fred Beasley has a high-ankle sprain. Not sure when he'll be back, but that's key to Barlow's success.

Watch that one if you're planning on taking Barlow over others such as Dillon, R. Johnson, Bennett, or D. Davis.

The 9ers have been very good rushing the ball and they will need to be if they are to have any success. Health is the only thing that will keep Barlow from rushing for 1,500yds. Defenses are still going to have to respect the pass game enough to free Barlow up, IMO.

I agree with the majority here, Barlow's quote may be a bit of an overstatement. But, you have to keep the fans in their seats somehow.

Great point Cupertino. He really is key to that running game there. They did say that x-rays were negative but the "high ankle sprain" is one of the most feared injuries currently going. This will impact their offense tremendously if he can't go for an extended period of time.
