    PFB Reference says Benson was signed August, played his first game September 9 and had 9 carries for 18 yards. Marshawn wasn't a FA. Was traded so he was valued higher than a FA. Looks like he was also traded early in a bye week. I'm assuming it's probably happened, but these samples aren't at all the same.

    You are saying a lot of BS to say the same thing I said. You were incorrect. You're also making an odd assumption that he wouldn't have gotten those carries. One of his most valuable plays was WAY before this (TD in the 1st quarter). Damien Williams was involved. Spencer Ware was the starter, obviously a focal point of the offense and performed better by several metrics (except TDs which can be fluky) in a tougher match-up than the Chargers. There is way more than enough information in Spencer's favor to feel good about him if he is healthy and plays. Enough that citing incorrect data or ignoring other data to prove the point is extremely bizarre to me .

    Now edited to say 90%. This is twilight zone stuff. There is more than enough evidence to argue Ware's value over Williams. Just do it correctly. It's fair for people to point out incorrect information on a place where people come to find information to make decisions. The consensus I've seen is it's risky to start Williams if Ware is active. It's not a unique stance and there is no need to cite incorrect information to back it.

    Stopped here. Fixed. Everybody knows the touch count's. It's public knowledge. You're the one who incorrectly cited it.

    Last time someone got picked up off waivers and carried the load a few days later? Honest question considering the possibility Gurley is out. Edit: NFL Waivers/FA
  7. Brandin Cooks 2018 Outlook

    Patrick Peterson (illness) is questionable for Week 16 against the Rams. Peterson wasn't seen the during option portion of Friday's practice, though beat writer Darren Urban of the Arizona Republic expects him to play through his questionable tag. Assuming he suits up, the eight-time Pro Bowler will likely line up against Rams deep threat Brandin Cooks. Ehh. Could be relevant.

    Sourcing on this seems odd...Not sure what indications he means.

    C.J. Anderson will reportedly be the first running back off the bench behind Todd Gurley on Sunday. Source: TheRams.com Gonna post the actual article text though and...I'm not sure about this. Do we usually get news like this from staff writers on team websites? What indications? lol ____________________________________ The Rams made a late-season transaction this week, picking up veteran running back C.J. Anderson ahead of the final two games and playoffs. Anderson joins the Rams after spending five seasons with the Broncos, having signed with the club as an undrafted free agent back in 2013. The veteran back most recently touted the rock for the Panthers in 2018 — playing in nine games and taking 24 carries for 104 yards. All indications point to head coach Sean McVay looking to Anderson as the first back off the bench behind running back Todd Gurley. And despite his comments on expecting Gurley to be ready for Arizona, the head coach says Anderson can make an immediate impact. “You can see him playing a role as early as this week,” McVay said. “Really impressed just being around him in the initial 24 hours, or whatever it's been.” McVay said his system is not that different from the running back’s previous experiences, and Anderson agreed, sitting in front of his brand-new locker at the Rams practice facility in Thousand Oaks, Calif. “Kind of knowing McVay, his background, where he came from, you know the Gruden’s and the Shanahan's, things like that,” Anderson said, explaining his tie to McVay’s style. “Obviously I was with [former Broncos head coach] Gary Kubiak for two years, so some crossover over there and what they do — just a little bit different.”

    If you're wondering why this guy didn't respond, it's because he definitely failed a test he had the answers to. And now he wants to give you answers to the next test, so proceed with caution. Exactly. Embrace the chaos.
  12. Damien Williams 2018 Outlook

    Are you SURE? Because this information is public... It would be incredibly ironic if you got it wrong. If you tried to predict the past, had the answers to the test, failed, And then proceeded to predict the future. That would then be incredibly ambitious of you.
  13. Damien Williams 2018 Outlook

    He got 8 rushes vs Baltimore when Ware was active. . People. Stop trying to predict the future. You're not good at it and don't take it personal. None of use are.
