Raider run DEF has been better the past 2 weeks. Considering it's just the RBs and Bowe to be handled, I would not expect a whole lot from Battle this week.

They've obviously been disappointed with Jones and don't think McCluster can handle a lot of touches or between the tackle runs. So I think they continue to give him an opportunity. I expect 15-20 touches and goal-line if they get there.

Spot on. Jones is just out of gas, and McCluster can't do anything in the middle. We'll see what he does with those touches, 60-80 plus an occassional TD is a reasonable expectation. Anything more will be gravy.

Jackie Battle - Good football name, bad football player.

Hope to get a week or two of good stats before the bubble bursts.

Im just going to take a chance on him.


yes.
If you can move Tebow for a starting RB, any starting RB, do it.

With McCoy on a bye, and Best's status TBD, I might have to roll with Jackie. With that said, who knows. I think he's 28 now, and hasn't shown up on the radar until now, which says something. I wouldn't expect much going forward.

Same here. I need two good weeks from him, the next two, for flex slot.

lol yeah, because we're experts on a player's talent level after 79 career touches over a span of several years.... :F

He's 6-2 240 and runs a 4.4 40yd...and just ripped off 141 yards on 21 touches. He's earned an unbiased run at it.

WOW!!! 6-2 240 4.4!!!!!!!!!...and he has been on ST for 5 years, right?.. So what does that tell you the "experts" ie the NFL talent evaluators think of him?? GMs and scouts that watch film on every player in the league 24/7 never traded for or promoted him to even a RB3 spot.. why? oh yeah, he has the acceleration and lateral movement of Jumbo Elliot.

Opportunity equals FF production, so I am not saying he can't be a bandaid in plus matchups.. but he is what he is..just a guy.

But I like your :F

Sometimes decent players fall through the cracks. I would be hesitant to use "5 years on special teams" as my only argument against him. I doubt too many teams could afford to divert time and resources scouting special teamers for RB consideration. He was never going to become a Running back over Jamaal Charles, Thomas Jones or McCluster. He's not elusive like Charles or McCluster and there wasn't any room for another downhill runner on that offense. The dynamic of that team has changed and now he has opportunity to prove he might be more than a special teamer, let's just wait and see instead of speculating. At the very least, he could be good enough to replace Thomas Jones once Charles returns.

Why wasn't A. Foster drafted? Why weren't current players like Grant, Blount and Bradshaw given the rock day one? S. Alexander turned out being pretty decent while waiting his turn behind Ricky Watters. McCallister played the roll till rasta was out.

Came in same year as Charles, behind what was considered a superstar in Larry Johnson. Had some real fumble issues. Charles became the lightning to LJ's thunder. When LJ plummeted and Charles looked ready, the current coaching staff brought in another name T Jones to replace Johnson. Charles continued to look superstar and it was looking like another season as such.

Tim Hansel said that "Necessity is the author of change." Charles injury, TJ getting older than dirt, defenses dropping on Cassell. Why not give this guy a shot that has been quietly doing whats been told of him, improving every season (don't have links but said in interviews prior to the Colt game).

He's not going to be the lightning. He's the thunder that TJ isn't. The physical style of play that an 0-2 demoralized team needed to become motivated again. The guy that can get yardage and keep the secondary honest helping the passing game. Is he the next superstar? Probably not. But a good chance that he will continue to get carries and to prod forward and give 70ish yards and a 40% chance at a TD per game.

Or he could suck eggs, fumble three times and go back to the waiver pile monday. That's why they play the games...
