Moore knows his role as a backup only.
He is doing his job, playing his best and is "filling in" for Parker and he knows he will become the back up when Parker returns, but that won't stop him.

I hope we keep Moore as the starter and bring Willie back slowly. It'll take a while for a speed back like Willie to recover fully.

Nice problem to have though, eh? A year ago, there wouldn't have been any question about Parker getting the lion's share of the carries upon returning from injury since Davenport represented such a significant downgrade. Moore? Not so much.

parker may be faster, but i think moore has better footwork when hitting holes. moore is better at making people miss than parker.

Don't forget catching, blocking, getting stood up at the line less ... basically, show me one thing Parker can do that Moore can't.

A TREMENDOUS increase in hitting the homerun ball EVERY TIME he touches the ball. Not to mention Parker WILL run to darkness at times now. He learned very well from Bettis.

Sorry, Willie doesn't get to run over a 1000 yards every year by only being an around the edge speed back.

MM is a great backup, but I doubt he can take the pounding up the middle time after time. Willie has actually started doing that.


As I said before, Willie is our number 1 back, Moore is going to be a great 3rd down back, and SHOULD be our no huddle back since he does catch better out of the backfield.

I think we have a 1-2 combination right now that, with our receivers and QB, is the most dangerous offensive combination in the NFL. If we can just get our line together and Ben a bit more experience calling plays, there is no stopping this offense.

Wasting your keystrokes, Preacher. Willie sucks and always has.

I think moore has earned a bigger role in the offense. But i still think when willie comes back, he should get more carries than moore. I think the distribution should be 20 carries for willie, and 10-15 for mewelde. You wouldnt think the 2 would be a change of pace but they actually would be. moore is a lot more shiftier where willie relies more on speed. Both are pretty quick tho, willie obvioulsy being faster of the 2

Now,

I agree with letting Willie sit this week and next week, just to make sure he is healthy down the stretch.

We are REALLY going to need him. My other worry concerns Hampton... he has shown that he really has no work ethic when it comes to being in shape. Just what has he been doing with himself over the last few weeks?

I know he couldn't keep his wind up... but how much food did he put down??
