    Who do you feed today?

    I love Arian, but if he's struggling running the ball & Tate seems to be excelling, I don't see anything wrong with using Arian in the passing game & feeding Ben Tate or Derrick Ward in the run game.

    I've said it before, & I'll say it again. We've got two play makers on the sideline; Andre Johnson & James Casey. There's no reason to have another on sideline because, "that's the way we've always done it" I'm very disappointed in our offensive guru if he hadn't thought of any way to get Foster & Tate in the game at the same time.

    Anyway, who do you feed?

    You run the ball all day long with both Foster and Tate.

    Foster is fine, he just needs more carries. I'd give Foster somewhere between 20-30 carries and Tate somewhere between 10-20. I'd like to run it 40 times today.

    Must swing Foster out if the traditional run game isn't working.

    I feel better with Tate, but I want Ward to get some play.

    Use all your weapons if you got 'em!
