kind of given, PT is not fully healthy

Yes. The term "starter" is really kind of silly, in that in just refers to the person who is on the field for the very first play. As long as we don't try to make Reggie the "go to" ball carrier and keep him in the appropriate role, with Hamilton and Pierre sharing ball carrying duties, we should be fine.

So, just like earlier, no one really knows. He "expects" Bush. Just like some "expect" PT or Hamilton.

I "expect" to find out on Sunday. haha.

No its not. David Thomas, the new TE, was in on the first play the first 2 games. He is not considered a starter. The starters, the guys pics you see scrolling across the bottom of the screen, at the beginning of the game, those guys come from the official depth chart. So, Reggie is #1 on the depth chart at the RB position.

reggie cannot move piles ... if he is hit behind the line of scrimm ... the play is always to be negative ... bell is always hit in the line of scrimm ....

hamilton can like more like bell than bush ...

bush seems to be afraid to be hit ... he seems a receiver ... bell is a RB

Hamilton has proven not a thing from his college career against poor competition to some workmanlike, but not stellar, preseason performance against third-string defenders, to his exactly zero carries for zero yards in games that count. If you are declaring him our second best running back after he has shown barely enough to make the roster over UDFAs because he is 'more like Mike Bell', then you must really really hate Bush (yep) and must be completely ignoring Pierre Thomas, who has been way more productive and impressive in regular season games than Hamilton has dreamed of being in preseason. Maybe he's the second coming, I don't know, but I don't know what that assumption is based on besides size.

i expect reggie to get like 15 carries (if he has some success), to me, he's looked good on couple of run plays at the end of the lions game and the long run against phillies.
