As much as I would love to see Ben play. I have to say Maddox. No reason to rush Ben back too early.

Maddox looked very good in camp and during preseason, and certainly is competent enough to run this offense. I'm not really worried about it...whomever gets the call will be able to get the job done for a couple weeks if need be...

I'd have to say Tommy "I'm gonna Gunn a Turnover" Maddox. With the new dedication to the run I think in all honesty this may help maddox. He can do what he was doing before he got replaced 13/22 142 tds 0 ints 0 stats from his last full game starting.

Maddox was upgraded to probable. Funny how quickly he healed after Ben went down. Anyways I think he gets the call........

well if ben ain't healthy and can't play and if maddox is avaliable then i say play him, cause i'd rather see him on the field then a 3rd string lifer. hopefully we won't have to see either of them though.
