Meh, you guys can call him Barnburner but I'm calling him F-Zero.

On the first day of training camp, Barner saw time mainly with the 3rd and 4th string units. More recently he has been running with the second string unit led by Derrick Anderson. It appears Barner's stock is rising.

 

Derek.

 

No offense.

I love being decisive to the hole. 

 

It's got to be the right hole.

With Stew out, we have a short yardage back, a change-of-pace, third down back, and an everydown back.  Never had those options before.

I look at it this way.

 

Kenjon Barner allows Stewart to get healthy and not rush a comeback.

 

There have been times when Stewart has rushed back from injuries, but now with Barner he can take his sweet time coming back. If he thinks he can play week two then that's fine or if he has to wait until week 15 then that's fine as well.

Haven't heard but has he been back working with the KR as well?  I know Williams returned some kicks as a rookie.  With his abilities and him being the 3rd RB at most, figured he would be in the picture for the KR spot back with Ginn

How would you say that Barner compares to A. Smith and T. Poole?

I have no doubt Barner will be a star in this league but he may not receive much opportunity.  He has a couple of high salaries in front of him and I seriously doubt carolina will place those salaries on the bench in favor of Barner. I expect to see him on KOR and possibly screens, unless there is an injury, I dont see him running out of the backfield much this year.

I know this isn't how he does on the field, but he did pretty well!  I like him a lot!  I think he will play a lot in the next few years...
