    Alright, we have many rbs, Brown Henry, White, Etc, we know Jarett payton isnt starting, is he even on the practice squad, and we cant rely on brown for a fuull season if you ask me, evn if he does, hes not productive, so Henry and White, i feel they are our best backs, Henry was successful for the most part in Buffalo with a horrible line, and Lendale White is one of the best rbs out of college next to bush that the NFL has seen in a while, so its hard to say they have similar running styles, moderate speed with a brusing attack, how do you guys feel about who should start???

    Considering Brown's injury history and LenDale's experience you'd think Henry would be the starter. But it just doesn't seem like that could ever happen. I think a rotation of Henry and White would be nice. And like others have said we should use Brown as a 3rd down and big play back.

    Brown is clearly the best and most proven back on this squad. Maybe Lendale gives him a run later on but for now I don't mind running Brown into the ground. Henry has shown me exactly NOTHING since joining this team and I'll be darmed if he gets the start.

    none of them play special teams.

    Probably not room on the 46 man roster for 3 RBs that don't play special teams.

    Hey I hope you are right and there is room for all three.

    Brown will start, but the question is, will he finish?

    Brown may start, but he won't finish. Henry will have a break out season. He is focused and ready. He said that he came to camp last year like he was the man. This camp/year he realizes that he has to work hard and he is focused on becoming the starter.
