Yeah, I don't think he has that 'quality' that makes him a keeper, but he can be used in certain decoy packages. If Sean thinks he can contribute by all means, we use him. But he is not starter material to me.

Again for the ones who apparently missed last season.. anyone tell me we have a back that runs as hard and punishes defenders as much as Chris ..and i will ask you kindly to...pass the pipe.

Awesome!!! Unfortunately from what I've seen the punisher has yet to finish a game without getting hurt, and got injured while rehabbing a serious offseason injury.

Who exactly is the punisher?

If he had the durability to last 16 games, I'd say he may be top 10 in the league.

If you include prone to injury in the comparison, he is the 4th best RB we have.

I think PT should be our #1 RB and get the majority of the carries. The main reason is he runs with alot of power and he always falls forward.

How about some stats. PT has 445 attempts and with only 3 fumbles I think I would want him carrying the ball as much as possible.

Dont understand all the injury prone talk either. In 08 and 09 he missed 3 games. 2010 was a serious injury that he never recovered from but that happens to RBs when they run as hard as PT.

PT with the most overall touches. Ingram with the most rushes. But frankly I am not scared of any touch by any of the 3 between Thomas, Ingram or Sproles. They all run and catch equally effectively. Ivory is the more one dimensional back. I like the 3 headed monster as well.

if we're playing a defense with big run stuffers, i prefer getting the ball to sproles and pt in open space, but if they're playing soft to stop the pass let ingram and ivory run it down their throat. overall i like ingram's potential as an every down back the most though.

I'm not crazy about the RB by comitte aproach, I think it prevents guys from getting into a rythm, I feel we're just switching packages and personel endlessly and that it makes it easier for defences to guess what we are gonna do. PT=Screens some runs. Ingram=runs, Sproles=runs on the outsides, passes. I'm not saying its a 100% like that but its getting that way.
