Before everyone starts ripping me for calling out Jim Mora...I am fan of Mora, and have been behind him 100-percent up until he said Jones is still our premier back.

Now, he is going to be scrutinized for that, just as Zorn was for his Kicker, which led to Zorn firing him.

We all knew Forsett had been quickly making a name for himself here in Seattle, and yet Mora made it clear that Jones is still our No. 1 back, saying no player should lose his job due to an injury.

That is true. I agree with that 100-percent, but the fact is, he wouldn't be losing it because of his injury. Jones would be losing his job because Forsett is a better option.

Jones has never been very productive here in Seattle, nor was he in Dallas. Besides, didn't we kick Shaun Alexander to the curb, because he wasn't as productive due to his injuries, which he could play through and still be a better back than Julius Jones.

So, Jim Mora and Greg Knapp (basically because i don't like you), either play the real RB,  Justin Forsett, and see where we stand in terms of needing a RB, or prepare to suffer serious consequences, as us fans are not people you want against you.

Up next, at Houston, Forsett better be starting, or don't bother running at all.
