Anyone ever hear of the sophomore slump. Norwood could be a victim as well as anyone. I think Dunn and Norwood will have similar numbers by the end of the year.

Everyone seems to be jumping on the 2nd year players bandwagon. Norwood should be good but dunn gives them the best chance to win.

I think that the Falcons made a good choice by naming Dunn as the starter even though i think he is at the end of his career they owe him the starting position.

But Norwood is definitely gonna be the feature back next year and this year he will be in to give Dunn a break.
I never think a team owes a player a starting gig. If it ever comes to that, the player should step aside whats better for the team and play his role.



Tell that to Brett Favre.

It doesnt matter who starts at RB week 1 for the Falcons, they wont find any room on the ground against the Vikings run defense.


oh rlly, is that a fact?

just hope norwood doesnt get past ur d-line bc hes gone if he does...

don't fret anyways bc you'll mostly be matching up against 3-4 wr sets just about every play, more passing than running

When did Warrick Dunn become an awful player? Norwood is gooing to be a good NFL RB but you still have a productive Warrick Dunn at RB.

Exactly.That's what i was saying. Not sure why everyone was so quick to rule out Dunn even before he was injured.

it doesnt realy matter who starts, joseph addai, only started in week 16, and he still got 1000yds. It just matters who gets more carries
