Q-Tip: 23 carries for 156 yards.

Holmes: 26 carries for 156 yards.

Yep, sure looks like Shanny used Q-Tip sparingly and it was quite a shock to me that the Chiefs decided to use Holmes just as sparingly.

I can only just hope (being a Holmes and Q-Tip owner in seperate leagues) that these two RB's continue to be used as sparingly as they were in week 1. I can't imagine what kind of points I'd get if the teams decided to give them the ball a little more!

QB- Favre
WR- Hines Ward
WR- S. Moss
WR- Bruce
RB- Green
RB- Dom Davis
TE- Boo W.

B- L. Fitzgerald
B- Keyshaun
B- GRIFFIN
B- Tatum
B- B. Johnson


ANY IDEAS?? I don't have any need for a RB as good as Griffin to sit my bench. I guess my weakness would have to be WR since Boo should be solid, huh?


Why bench him keep "Q" and trade Dom Davis

All I know is, I have T. Bell on my bench and Q. Griffin in the game. Travis Henry is sitting out as well, hoping that J. Lewis can get his game going (dam browns). QG was the star of my offense this week, and could be the reason I win, hoping that A. Green has a HORRIBLE night against the Panthers.

I took QG in a late round hoping that no one else would. What a STEAL!

Brunell, Mark QB WAS
McNair, Steve QB TEN
McCareins, Justin WR NYJ
Holt, Torry WR STL
Johnson, Keyshawn WR DAL
Smith, Jimmy WR JAC
Lewis, Jamal RB BAL
Griffin, Quentin RB DEN
Henry, Travis RB BUF
Kleinsasser, Jimmy TE MIN
Kinney, Erron TE TEN
Brown, Josh K SEA
Patriots, DST DST NE
Jaguars, DST DST JAC

I strongly disagree that in theory he will get hurt. I believe Barry Sanders was 5'8", 200 lbs. Griffin is 5'7", 195. They have almost identical builds and similar running styles. It was Barry's quickness combined with his size and build that prevented him from injury. He was one of the most durable backs in history.

Have you ever done squats with someone of that build? You'd be amazed how much he can probably squat.

It's very difficult to get a good lick on someone like that because they're so quick and small. Also, imagine a pencil and the force it takes to break it as it becomes shorter. Those short stout legs are very strong.

Now watch, he will get a season ending knee injury next week and I'll look like an idiot, :-b

All i'm going to say is you people who trade Griffin now or even think about trading him are retarded. I wish yoiu were in my league, and i hope your not in a money league.

He's the real deal. He's two inches shorter than me, and yet he weighs like 60 pounds more than me...all muscle. Just because he's short doesn't mean he can't take a beating. The guy is around Portis' weight, yet much shorter...he's freakin' solid as a rock.
