Lamont Jordan or Larry Johnson

Recommended Posts

Everyone is tmepted by the LJ numbers (me too). Conventional wisdom would tell you to play your starter, but the gambler in all of us say start LJ.

 

Something has to happen in this backfield - please don't make us go through a whole season of split carries.

tough call...

 

I'd go with Jordan by a hair, only because he will get more touches. Jordan should do well against the Chiefs, and OAK might want to run a little to keep the clock-oriented KC rushing attack off the field. Everyone is looking for Collins/Moss bombs all night, but OAK will lose this game if their defense is on the field for 40+ minutes.

 

I think they'll try to run some, especially early, and Jordan will be the beneficiary of some more-than-usual carries.

 

Swammi says: I think Jordan is your safer bet to 80 yards/1TD.

You should always play your starters. LJ had a lucky week due to circumstances that fell into his hands.

 

You won't see that kind of production out of him again with only 9 carries. If holmes gets injured I say play him, but otherwise, you should always play your starters.

 

I would rather have 1 guy who carries the ball 20+ times, than a backup who might carry it 12 or 9 or 5.
