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.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
