NOW HOW WINS HEAD-TO-HEAD. 2009 OR 2010?

 

QB

Bulger vs Bradford (A)

- Bradford wins, by a long shot, Bulger is washed up.

 

RB

Steven Jackson, Mike Karney vs Steven Jackson, Mike Karney (T)

-Tie, because its the same people, but of course the backups stunk both years. 

 

WR

Donnie Avery, Laurent Robinson, Keenan Burton, Derek Stanley vs Mark Clayton, Laurent Robinson, Brandon Gibson, Danny Amendola, Mardy Gilyard, Dominique Curry (A)

- So easy to see why 2010 team wins (even without Avery)

 

TE

Randy McMichael, Daniel Fells, Billy Bajema vs Daniel Fells, Billy Bajema, Illinois Mike, Fendi Onobun (A)

- 2010 wins on the fact that together, they are better, and Randy couldn't catch a cold in Alaska.

 

Tackles

Barron and Smith vs Saffold and Smith

- Um... 2009 wins only on the fact that Barron has way more experience than Saffold does. Smith is also a push on himself.

 

Guards

Bell and Incognito vs Bell and Goldberg

- Same as the tackles, 2009 wins, Incognito is better than Goldberg but has a way bigger mouth.

 

Center

Jason Brown vs Jason Brown

-Tie.

 

Defensive Ends

Leonard Little, James Hall, Chris Long vs Chris Long, James Hall, CJ Ah You, George Selvie, Eugene Sims

- It's a tie only because the 2010 Rams would have been better if Little came back as a situational rusher.

 

DTS

Clifton Ryan, Gary Gibson, Darell Scott vs Fred Robbins, Gary Gibson, Clifton Ryan, Darell Scott

-2010 wins solely on the fact of Fred Robbins being here.

 

WLB

Will Witherspoon vs Larry Grant

- 2009 wins because Will was more established, while Grant could go either way.

 

MLB

James Laurinitius vs James Laurinitius

-2010 James wins, if thats possible, James is now more of a leader, and knows the scheme more.

 

SLB

David Vobora vs Na'il Diggs

- 2010 wins because Diggs is more stable and better than Vobora, but having Dave provides more depth.

 

CB

Bartell, Wade, King, Fletcher, Butler vs Bartell, Fletcher, Dockery, Murphy, King, Johnson

- 2010 wins. Wade was a bust, and Fletcher will be good. Dockery and Murphy provide even more depth.

 

FS

OJ Atogwe vs OJ Atogwe

-Tie.

 

SS

James Butler vs James Butler

-Tie. Dahl provides help for him.

 

STs

-Not worth writing. Always  the same. Tie

 

KR and PR

Stanley vs Amendola/Gilyard

-2010 wins by far, Stanley was cut to make room for Danny.

 

Final tally:

2009 wins: 3

2010 wins: 8

Tie: 6

 

That really means a lot.
