I like Matt Jones, but it's my belief that he should not play until the 2nd half

    I really don't care what the offensive coaches, or whoever is making this decision believes anymore, not after seeing the disparity between Driskel and Murphy. Just put Taylor in and give him 10 carries. Do it when we're up by three scores for all I care. If they do this, and he sucks, then I will stand corrected. However, it's highly unlikely that this opportunity will ever be given and if it was, it's highly unlikely that Jones or Brown would ever win their starting spots back.

    I would love to see Taylor get one or two series where his carries are mixed in with our revamped scheme. I agree that Brown would probably take the greatest hit if Taylor succeeded, but I still believe Jones is the best back on our roster right now and to bench him all together would hurt our productivity and our chemistry.

    You're right, I do. You're saying that because a guy has the ability to make a long run 1 out of every 75 carries, he should start over the other guy that doesn't have that ability, however is more consistent and displays more characteristics closely associated with being a good RB than the 1st guy.

    Am I right?
