While Periscope sessions are enjoyable, they can't replace the old-fashioned mail.David Cobb, too, and Bishop Sankey continues not to show the sort of explosiveness needed from a back of that style. But too many fantasy players write RB1 and RB2 in stone and seem hell bent on not accepting fluidity to the situation. I think Cobb will prove the better back and wind up with more carries. But Sankey will also get some, Dexter McCluster will have his time on the field, Antonio Andrews probably gets work and Jalston Fowler will have some chances too. Even a scenario that includes a "bell cow" back for Ken Whisenhunt would also include a third-down back and a niche for McCluster. So would that be an RB1 in your eyes?
Marcus Mariota reacted just fine. He was angry with himself, but not to the point that he lost any of his calm or composure or couldn't recover with that fine drive at the end of his playing time in Atlanta. That calm is way more like McNair than Young (a pouter) or Locker (who would panic and try to do too much to make up for mistakes). Not that I am comparing more than the reaction in that situation.
Delanie Walker continues to serve in that role and Taylor Lewan is taking on more. Defensively, Jurrell Casey is ready and willing to do more, but Brian Orakpo is really positioned to be first in line for the role.
