i agree..those 5 wr sets are something.

i couldnt believe dillon didn't even play the whole first series. if that is a sign of things to come it may not be the shoe in for dillon to be the better back this year. but i think he will have his games this year too.

my guess is they showcased brady against manning tonight.

I'm not reading too much into those two series where Dillon sat out. I think it was a combination of exploiting Indy's secondary and the Patriots' lack of RB depth.

86 yards and 5.8 YPC wasn't too shabby. B-)

Without a doubt, I'll say Dillon. But after watching the pats/colts game tonight, I'm having my doubts since the Pats barely gave him the ball (only 15 carries compared to Edge's 30 carries). The Pats went to a no huddle, pass-happy offense.

His one long run inflated his ypc.

Does that somehow lessen it's value? :-b

That always irritates me when they say "its inflated because of a long run." Should we just ignore all long runs? Guess that makes Portis and LT worse then.

barlow/dillon are my starting RBs.. i drafted barlow before dillon (had the 12th pick in a 14 team league)...

personally, i will be more dissapointed if barlow is a bust.. i have high expectations for him.. as for dillon, i wasn't too sure when i drafted him.. he looked pretty good tonight, but not super quick (and 15 carries.. wtf??)... barlow should get ~25 carries this week, and will break the century mark and hopefully a score.. Barlow all the way..

although, dillon has more talent/upside i think..

Im not sure what you are talking about - "one long run".

I watched the game and Dillon looked fantastic when he was on the field - not just running with the rock, but blocking too.

I am pretty suprised NE didnt use him more - especially in the 4th qtr when they had the opportunity to put it away with a couple first downs. Instead they went to the air 3 straight plays when it was under 3 minutes left to play. :-? :-[
