    • marion barber; romo thumb is going to limit the # of times he puts it up ... TD machine
      but u cant go wrong with Fred Tayor, there will be enough scores to go around between him & Drew-jones

      but i like Barber!!

    • Fred Taylor. My reason is two-fold. First and most obvious, Fred Taylor's on fire. Secondly, Jax is very committed to the run and alot moreso than Dallas.
      Dallas is weird in terms of their running game. They abandon it at times and not bc the backs are not gaining sufficient yardage. Then all of sudden it comes back in small spurts. I guess it has to do with being able to please every weapon on offense, namely to keep TO from whining. Barber is the better runner tho. He's a basher. Old school. He's the classic Bill Parcells ball control running back but they have to use him like that. Just bc of that uncertainty, I would stay away from Barber and go with Fred Taylor bc you know jacksonville will run it if its the last thing they do. Let's not forget that he's going up against a nasty run D in Oakland.
