I don't know if Lamont can be an elite back, yet he can be good. If he runs well and catches well, in this new offense, he can repeat his 2005 production. He might have fewer carries, unless he comes on strong, while Rhodes is out. If he does, he could retain his role as our main back. If he stumbles out of the gate, his playing time will be split amongst the other HBs. It would make sense to keep Micheal Bush on PUP through game 6. If the Raiders need him by then, they can bring him in gradually. Jordan has the early part of the season to prove he's the man. He can, yet, he's got more competition this time. The Raiders are much stronger at HB this year! The Return to Greatness Continues...
