Wonder how many times Bettis' cell rang in the last week?

Seriously though, Russell better get the bulk of the carries this week or I'll be pissed.

I'm doubting that.  Figure Moore gets the most, with Dookie getting a few in the 2H and as COP, with Russell maybe getting a taste with a goal line run?



Really?  I think that would be asking a lot from him.  You're basically asking him to be the every down back then, no?  To me, it would make the most sense to have Russell "start" and basically split carries with MM.  IMO, ND should be nothing but an insurance policy.  I mean, he's been sitting on his ass for the last few months.  I don't see why he would get more looks than a player who was actually on the squad to begin with, but WTF do I know.

Tomlin knows Moore from Minnie, and knows he's been able to carry the load for a few games.  Running Moore into the teeth of the Ravens D is one thing, but I don't think he'll be noticeably worse at the inside stuff than FWP.  Not as much speed outside, but some nice shifty shit and decent receiving ability we haven't used near enough.  I see Tomlin getting Dookie some carries to get the rust off him, and really only using GR for the heavy stuff, where we need some bulk.  I doubt Dookie sat around eating pizza and twinkies, and PS guys rarely get the call to be The Man right off.  Moore will get the load, and Dook and GR get some fluffery.
