Default Which RB Will Get The Most Carries?

Our rb situation is a mess, so i'd like to ask you who will get the most carries? At this point, i'm gonna say Chris Brown just cause the optimist in me thinks he'll actually stay healthy. I also see Slaton getting a nice share of the load. What do you think?

Shipp is just a body right now, no way he makes the roster(barring horrendous injury).

Well this is the place where RBs come to die.

List of victims that was never heard of again:

DD
Wells
That guy from the Pats, his hometown was Houston
Dayne(so far)
Wali Lundy(he was so young too)

Soon to be:

Green

Green will rush for over 1,000 yards this season.

OK, I admit my glass has been over half full a couple of times tonight.

Who voted Shipp? He must have a fan, because that's wishful thinking.

Steve Slaton will have the most carries next season, because week 1 Ahman is going to trip getting off the bus in Pittsburgh and then Chris Brown will fall over him and both of them will be lost for the season. Steve Slaton by default.

ye of little faith remember the Giants?

Quote:
There is a way to play all four that capitalizes on all their skills. Bradshaw and Jacobs could split first and second down carries, with complimentary running styles. Ward could be the third down and passing situations back, and Droughns could be the short yardage guy. Would that arrangement keep everyone happy, or not be enough to satisfy anyone? It’s a delicate balance.

Funny you list (well kinda list) Dayne in the poll .... If Slaton is the #1 I could see Dayne behind him (yeah I know a lotta people dont like him) He wont put up stellar numbers but would get ya 4ish per and hang onto the ball .... while being healthier than both Green and Brown..... Not to mention probably considerably cheaper than either. Not a long term solution but I could see it.
