Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro have both gone through their ups and downs during the season. So which of them will back up Justin Forsett for the final six games of the season?
“That’s a good question,” Offensive Coordinator Gary Kubiak acknowledged. “We know who our ‘one’ is. Our ‘one’ is playing really well. No. 29 [Justin Forsett] has played extremely well. We’ve been bouncing back and forth between Lorenzo and Bernard.
“We’re continuing to look at that. I’m trying to see what Bernard does best and what Lorenzo does best.”
Kubiak’s response indicated that the No. 2 back could vary from game-to-game, and the Ravens may ride the hot hand between the two young backs.
Pierce most recently served as Forsett's primary backup, but it hardly sounds as if the job is his. The larger point is that this likely turns into a committee if something happens to Forsett down the stretch.
