When Moody comes back
When Moody comes back, I think he deserves his carries but not at the expense of Rainey and Demps. There are plenty of carries for Moody, Demps and Rainey. Tebow is the one who needs to give up his carries. He has carried three times as much as Demps or Harvin and almost twice as much as Rainey. He's averaging 2.5 yards per carry because people expect him to carry 12-15 times a game. If he carries 2-5 times a game, Moody can get 10 carries and defenses will be more surprised when Tebow carries. Plus they will have to game plan for a tough, tackle-breaking bronco like Moody, two small, speedy backs who hide behind the line and are gone in a flash and a bruising fullback-quarterback who will gash you if you aren't looking for it.
