Holmes Vs. LT

Postby Grim » Wed Sep 01, 2004 2:29 pm

Sorry if this has been done before, but I didn't see it recently. . .
I see that with injuries to the WR that holmes would probably get more action, however defenses might just focus on him more, and does everyone still think he's up for 20-25 TD??
LT of course gets touchdowns and passes, so who's gonna be better?
Opinions are like a**holes, everyone's got one.
Do you enjoy criticizing people's a**holes?

yeah - this has been talked about a lot. And by a lot i mean a whole lot.

Holmes will have a hard time repeating 27 TDs.

However:
LDT is in a worse situation than he was last yr: The oline is as weak as last yr. The QB situation is bad - last yr they at least still had Flutie. Boston wont be keeping defenses honest either. I see a down yr for LDT. In fact, I think AGreen will finish higher than LDT and should be drafted ahead of him too:

I agree Green ahead of LT2. But I disagree with Holmes ahead of Green.

Green
Holmes
LT2

I've said it all off season, Green will be the number 1 back in football this year. If not, I'm going to be here to eat my crow.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

In a re-draft league you have to go with Holmes. In a keeper, I would take LT2 first overall.

Any defenses that gave respect to those WRs when healthy instead of doubling up on Gonzo and Holmes deserved to get romped.

This has been done to death. Yes, Holmes may not come to 27 TDs again, but getting 20 would be a substantial drop on his part, and still probably more than anyone else in the league. Simply put, he's still the best, and if you don't feel comfortable taking him, hope you don't get the #1 spot.

I would pick Green #1 overall because they are right, he will be the #1 RB so what are you smoking? :-b

You gotta pick Holmes 1st IMO. 2nd is very debatable, but i see NO REASON how holmes slips in the rankings.

Look at the stats from last yr:
LDT - 2370 yds, 17tds
Green - 2250 yds, 20tds

Is it really that much of a stretch to rate Green higher?

Lots of thing to consider here, but one of the main things Im looking at is what has changed from last yr to this, and by any account, SD actually got worse.

Also, Id say looking at last yr, Green was more consistant than LDT too.

Regardless - :-° :-° :-°
