I need to start Clinton Portis or Earnest Graham.

Portis is haveing an decent year, not many yards but some good TDs. But he is facing Dallas and with all likleyhood, Washington will be down by 14 befor half time.

Earnest is also so so this yearabout 250 yds and 1 TD. But Earnest is going against the soft Greenbay defense.

So, lets get some quick votes in here please.

I like Graham

thanks, hester

GBs "D" is hurting right now, I would go with Graham.

I am in the same predicament as you every week with Kevin Smith of the Lions- they are always down so far that they abandon the running game by the half, and that hurts his numbers.

I might even take it a step further. Who are your other running backs? I assume if you are debating between these two you probably have another back who is a for sure starter each week.

If that is the case I would consider trading either Portis or Graham. Its nice having someone of this caliber on the bench but you may be able to fill another hole on your roster by trading one of them instead of always having one on your bench.

Take a look at your upcoming bye weeks for your RB's and try to plan out who you will start each week, that should help you decide if you really can afford to trade one of them and which one is better to keep.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
