Merciless will benefit from not being pressured into having to be as dominant "right out of the gate" as Texans rookie 1st rounders had traditionally been forced into.
Tate? I think he's nearing the stage in his development that he could challenge Foster as #1. Why? Foster's new diet is killing his Sundays. Period. Nobody has yet to respond to my comments on it and that's because they know it's true. It was a neat theory--Can a dominating NFL RB like Foster go all plant-based and still dominate? Nope.
Tate is no slouch. Foster needs to scale back and try vegan every other day and normal every other day. Give us your absolute best even if it means shelving a personal agenda.
Barwin needs to finish the year out, let's see him in a full 16+ games. If Foster falls off any more than he is already, give Tate more snaps.
Holiday? I don't like him on the 53, I understand "why" though, and yet I also want him playing out the full season. In playoffs? Manning or Forsett on returns, no ifs ands or buts...but Kubiak won't do that (see: Jacoby playing return man the ENTIRE Ravens playoff game last year).
