Jerome has already said that he doesn't want as many carries as last year, and he knows Duce can get it done!

Staley...Bettis doesn't have the juice to carry the ball the entire season anymore.

Lets go worse case scenario...Bettis starts then gets stuffed early and often, you bench a fan fav/legend and bring in Duce(mo shifts to other team). Or Staley starts and gets stuffed, then you bring in Bettis. Other team is a little worried as he is fresh and something to prove. I kinda see like in MLB when Randy Johnson comes out of the bullpen after pitching the night before. Sure he may be tired, but you know he still has enough left.

I dont think it matters really, but I'd rather see duce start and keep the bus fresh for the end of the season. I love the bus as much as anyone but people tend to forget how awesome duce was in the first part of the season last year before he got banged up. Start the duce and keep the bus fresh.

I like Duce but he seems injury prone.
