Yes im starting it before the end of the game and no this is not a hate Hyde thread. I think Hyde is a good back but i think Smith is the same back with more wiggle and better vision. The fumbles hurt him early in his career but i see a new man out there. Not just this game, i have been impressed with his vision and hard nosed running all year. I am not saying bench Hyde i would love if they split carries at least get Smith more touches

Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
I'm not ready to say he is better but he is starting to look impressive. Looks like a new man.
lol good play by Hyde no doubt like i said i think he is a good RB. I just think Smith has shown better so far this year.
Yeah. I remember when people were saying we should start Doran Grant.
I think the coaches know who should play more.
i am smarter than Urban you didnt know that?
Hyde is averaging 7.1 yards for the game
Not sure about this...Carlos is killing it.
and smith fumbles lol
...and with another fumble, Rod Smith reminds us why he is the backup.

i still think he has better vision and wiggle. a guy i knew by the name of Eddie had some fumble problems
I think you can say you'd like to see Smith get more carries without saying anything about Hyde.
Hyde has proven he can carry the team in the fourth quarter without fumbling the ball. Smith hasn't really proven that. I'd like to see him get more carries, but I think it's silly to say he's better than Hyde at this point.
once he rushes for 1900+ yards you can compare him to eddie george otherwise i think its time to drop it

Im not into the whole arguing on the internet thing so miss me with that. you won't get a response
Hyde is a grown ass man. Smith is a grown ass man with butter rubbed all over his fucking hands.
and hyde put's the argument to rest.
I don't get the OP's post. Could be Hyde's best game. Another stud run, dude is playing like a man tonight. Smith is fumble prone.
Hyde is great going north and south. Lateral he is not great
Where smith can shift side to side better and make people miss
Hyde runs them over
They compliment each other
Then add in brax
Hyde is good im not trying to debate that. Smith kinda screwed my post with his fumble but i did mention that. i just think Smith has better make a guy miss skills and vision. Hyde has had Huge holes when he has big runs
that was my point im not saying bench Hyde BY ANY MEANS. i would just like to see Smith get some more touches.
Except smith fumbles about 40% of the time.
