Who will be starting at RB for MIN and DEN

Postby bagobonez » Tue Oct 12, 2004 1:05 pm

Will Mewelde Moore get another start this week?

Will Ruben Droughns get the nod again this week?


I need to know because I really do not want to have to start Barlow EVER again.

I think Q-Tip and Droughns will split...Moore will get the majority of the carries, with Moe for short yardage and goalline.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press speculates Moore will carry the bulk of the rushing load again in Week 6. Onterrio Smith is suspended, Michael Bennett (knee) should miss one more week and Moe Williams (calf) also is a little banged up. Looks like a good start against the 'Aints.

As for Denver, last I heard Shanny was still playing games with the media about who would start. I actually think he enjoys this. I would guess that he would go with the hot hand (Reuben), but who knows with Shanny. It may be that Reuben and Q-Tip both get carries, with Shanny sticking with the more effective back. I own Q-Tip, and I am not starting him unless this situation clears up a little more.
Vengeance is mine.

I hate that rat toothed bastard Shanahan!!!!!
He knows who he is playing. He just wont say.........

So who will get more carries at Oakland? If Shanahan knows, he isn't tipping his hand.

"I'm not really sure myself," Shanahan said, adding, "Maybe I am sure; I'm just not telling you guys (the media at a Monday afternoon press conference)."

Moore had 32 touchs and Droughns had 34 touchs. I would guess they could handle that much of a load 2 weeks in a row and the injured guys would be better off to start in week 7.

Unless Moore and Droughns got banged up to much (and as of today there both listed as the starters for week 6) why hurry the injured player back.

I hope the Dever game starts at noon. Shannahan sucks. LOL
