It's way too early to make any judgement on Barlow. I'm going to at least let the preseason finish before I formulate any kind of opinion on him.

I wasn't terribly impressed with Barlow in the Saints game but he really wasn't on the field much. With FWP not playing this weekend, Barlow, Dookie, Verron, and the other backs will get a chance to show their stuff.

I don't think he'll make the team....I'd rather see them take a chance on a young guy.

my feelings also.

it is premature to say he is canned. i am only suggesting that it looks likely, always looking to the future, he would have to prove that he is competitive w/ the young guys. average running backs are throwaways in this league. only the great ones survive very long.

Well it seems like the consensus here, and I agree: I don't like Barlow's chances to make it.
I do like Barlow though (based on the past alone, and the hometown angle). One thing he does have in his favor is his catching. If we are really tending to a more pass-happy type of offense this year it would increase his chances to make the team.
What Davis has going for him (besides youth, potential, and what looks like great running ability) is that he can also play Fullback- The Steelers need to have someone back up Krieder besides tight ends.
So maybe the choice at running back would be some kind of indictator for what direction the offense is really going in- pass or run... whadda you think?
