Norwood should still get a nice amount of carries.

He won't be the starter for long. Maybe a few games then to Norwood.

I expected Dunn to start anyway, but I wish Norwood would.

Not a suprise here, the veteran will start for the season opener. Norwood should still get his share of the carries as well.

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.

If he's going to start, it would come earlier than that.

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.

Despite Dunn getting the start, I firmly believe Norwood will post bigger numbers by years end. I happen to like Dunn and Norwood, but Norwood is coming into his own, and could be the new face of the Falcons franchise.

Oh, and yes, they will have an awful week one. The Vikings Defense is incredibly stout against the run. They may be the best in the league.

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.
