lamont jordan vs. brandon jacobs?

11 posts in this topic

hey guys, i have the chance to get rid of l. jordan for jacobs, what do you think. i keep thinking jordan will slow down after this injury and with fargas and now rhodes playing a more prominent role, and it looks like jacobs will be back near %100 this weekend. whatcha think?

Jacobs has more up side then Jordan. NY has been committed to the run even with Jacobs out so I assume he will get good carries.

Hopefully this is your #2 RB though.

Derrick Ward has shown that he is more like Tiki last year than Jacobs. So the NYG will now be a RBBC team and granted Jacobs should get goalline (unless Droughns takes them) But honestly I say ride the Jordan Wave.......or try and get more for him....yeah try getting more for him.

I agree. NYG will be RBBC. I'd keep Jordan through the injury.

I have Lamont and D. Ward (and Ronnie Brown and Tomlinson). I'm not letting ANY of them go until I have a firm grip on who my front-runners are. If I had to guess, Ward won't see as much action near the goal-line as Jacobs and Droughns, so his value will be heading south sooner than later. Lamont is worth holding onto as well (IMO) and hopefully the coaches see he's earned his spot (424 yds rushing and 2 TD's) to keep Fargas and Rhodes as backups.

Jacobs will be a stud, he had 20 carries last week. And the only reason ward had his TD was because a defender ripped jacobs helmet off and broke his chin-strap. Thats why they inserted Ward near the goalline. Plus Jacobs had a 10+ yard TD run negated by a holding call at the end of the game. By "what ifs and could have beens" he should have had over 110 yards and 3 TDs last week. If you watched the game.

looks like he got hurt..... again, which yeilded another Ward TD. the guy can run, but can he stay healthy is the ??? Maybe he isn't fit for the bruiser back role.

Jacobs will be a stud by years end. I have him on my fantasty team which has a pretty high entry fee. I drafted Jacobs in the second round, he would have been a stud now if he didn't get hurt in week 1. That sorta messed everything up and now they know what Ward can do.

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
