Re: The Running Game

When we first traded for him I thought TH would be our 3rd down back. I'm not totally giving up in him as a featured runner, but how can you not be impressed with what Torain did last week?

Re: The Running Game

Philly seems to be having serious tackling problems and the pounding style Torain brings may be a sweet deal in a couple of weeks......

Re: The Running Game

Philly has a problem that isn't easy to fix and that's stopping the run

That's just way too much nonsense. Just run the guy with the hot hand. They're all capable.

Re: The Running Game

Come the last month of the season, I have a weird feeling it's not going to matter between these two. Helu's just sitting on my fantasy bench for a reason.

Re: The Running Game

Torain steamrolled the Iggles in his one start against them last year. I would stay with the hot hand, and spell him with Hightower, especially on pasing plays to optimize our protection.

Re: The Running Game

Is TH's injury that bad? Or is Shanahan switching from WRs to RBs.

That was my thought process as well when we first traded for him. I still think (when healthy) Torain is the better of the two, especially on the early downs.
