You can't compare Barlow to Hambrick:
1 - Hambrick had very little experience starting or playing in any NFL games when he was given the start last season...Barlow has played and started in several games...he has the experience factor
2 - Hambrick does not have the talent Barlow does, quite simply...he cannot catch as well as Barlow nor possesses the same speed. He is an inferior back
3 - I believe the situation was different. Last season, the Cowboys ran the ball into the ground even with a horrific RB due to their superior play on defense. The 49ers don't have nearly the D Dallas did last season, and will have to play catchup. Hambrick's stats were inflated due to Dallas just trying to run out the clock...so you really can't compare Hambrick's success to Barlow yet. (I understand the Hambrick of old does have an edge on the Barlow of new due to the carries he received, but Barlow will be given plenty of oppurtunities in the passing game [no lt2, but still good enough])
Wow, I just used brackets inside of parentheses - is that legal?
