Default Rainey or Batch?

Who do you think will have a better season and why?

Rainey.

By far this guy can fly. Get him the ball in space and he will excel. Big plays seem to follow this guy around His ability to move to WR from the backfield pre-snap also is a great weapon to confuse a defense. Very good returner and special teams player as well.

Batch has his work cut out but has very good hands to catch balls and is more a traditional RB then Rainey as far as in between the tackles. They really could be vying for two different positions.

Maybe it's Dwyer or Batch?

I would normally agree with this, but all I have to judge him on is a 70 yard touchdown scamper. I'll just hush up until we hear about his camp progress.

It would be hard to say which one will be better. Neither has made the transition in the nfl. I know that Batch has had some camp experience but that is still not enough to tell. I will take the wait and see approach.

Wow Dwyer did gain a lot of weight just since January. I wouldn't be surprised of he is gone, we have 6 RB's and MM if we want to pick him back up, we won't keep thag many RB's and Dwyer sticks out like a sore thumb now since he has "weight issues".

Exactly...Neither might be the answer...We hope they both shine! Im afraid Batch is injury prone.

Dwyer is your everyday average NFL backup or less

How can we judge Batch when we've never even seen him play a down. Meanwhile, all Dwyer has done when given a chance is look good. I'm not going to judge him based on one blurry picture.

It will be interesting to see how the RB situation plays out though. Obviously there isn't enough room for all of them.
