I'm pretty sure I'm benching***for ThJones--as TJ plays the NYJets,
who absolutely BLOW on run defense, whereas***plays Seattle, who is
decent at run d.
Also,***gets about 22-24 total touches a game, average.  TJones
about 26-28.  Neither is a TD machine, and yes, Benson (plaese) takes a
few carries away, but the Jets are so bad at run D I just can't pass
this week up to put TJones out there and bench Gore...

Am I nuts? [*again*]

Not nuts, but***is having the far better season.  I would stick with
him.  This is one of those tossups where I would say just trust your
gut.

Actually far better season was a total overstatement on my part.  I
just looked and***has only slightly over 200 total yards more than
Jones on the season.  I concur with Jones.  Especially once you
consider that***had a concussion and had to leave the last game,
there's a little more worry with him which should make your decision
easier.

Well, now that it's over,***was the way to go, I reckon.  Granted,
125 yrds from ThJones didn't hurt.  That said, I'm down by 1 and I've
got Shockey v. Jones-Drew on MNF.  Don't get much closer.  But***
would've wrapped it up for me.  But so would playing Joe Horn instead
of Mark Clayton.  Alas....such is FF.  Get some right, get some wrong.
