    I dont know if he should be the starter or not, but I do believe because he is the future, he should be getting as many carries as possible. I also believe that in order for us to have ANY chance this week, we need to hold the ball as long as possible, HENCE, us running a lot.

    what's kinda interesting is Brown's first couple of runs were quite serviceable ... maybe the 10 in a row prematurely curtailed his stamina

    nevertheless, I think to this stage in his career Chris Brown has shown the potential to break a big play now and again ---- he has also shown that he's not reliable enough to be a full time / every down back
    -it was cool to see him hit 100 yards before halftime in the beginning of his career, but chances are those days are over

    ~Chris probably would make a good 2nd and long back
    ~Travis probably makes for a good 3rd and short

    HOWEVER, without solid O-Line play and until the passing attack stabilizes, it's going to be difficult for any of our backs to be successful

    somewhere in the middle of his lung transplant (thanks Gut), and perhaps another collison with a member of the hobbit secondary, Chris will get hurt and wont get that touch yard....unless Indy feels sorry and gives it to him ;)

    It's been 3 years since he had 10 carries in a game. His body wouldn't be used to that punishment.

    I'm sure fisher will say LW doesn't know all the blocking schemes as the reason that LW isn't starting already. My response would be to ask why then are olson and pillar still starting as they don't seem to know the blocking schemes either.:grrhee:

    I was a CB fan, even have a Jersey of his, but plain and simple, the kid is a straight ahead runner, no cuts, no jukes to his game whatsoever. He runs tall, and has not strength to pull free from arm tackles. The 20 pounds of muscle he put on must be in his back b/c that's what he always lands on when he is tackled......No serious, a few years ago that style of running was good b/c our o-line can actually sustain blocks while he gets through the hole with his speed, but now?? sheesh, they can get a block but sustaining it is another story. I finally admit that CB is made out of toilet paper. Let Lendale Start, just hope his injuries are behind him, he looked a little gimpy after a few of those runs himself.

    9 rushes, 39 yards isnt bad for a rookie, also consdiering that he only got most of the carries in the first half, if we stick to a ground game and control the clock, we can keep the game closer

    CB on 3rd down?

    The way he tip toes to the hole? We'll have Craig on the field even more often!

    The Dallas game was my first trip to Nashville, and I had a blast--even considering the result of the game we had a great time, but I tell you what there are a lot of problems on the O and D line that aren't getting noticed much here.

    Lendale should start because Chris Brown is averaging 3.1 ypc. Lendale is at 3.5. Henry is at 2.7. Simple math points to Lendale.
