We have the 7th most rushing attempts in the NFL, and rank 9th in yards/game and 9th in yards per attempt.

That number is quite deceiving considering we've played one more game than 29 other teams.
Oh, and we average more pass attempts than any other team

But even if you factor that in we still rank 17th in runs per game.

If all these guys make it through the season fairly healthy one is going to get traded. I can't see us carrying all four next season.

I would normally agree with you.
The reason we have so many RBs is a reaction to last year's injuries.
I would have said that we had enough RBs until they ALL got hurt.
Bad luck makes you reactionary.
This year we (so far) have a glut of RBs.
Worst case scenario is, they all stay healthy and split carries.
That is also the best case scenario. They are all fresh for the playoffs, on the road, in bad weather. Lambeu Field?

The NFL is funny.......

point taken.
I guess I am still just pissed that I flew to St.Louis to watch us lay an egg against a really crappy run defense

I'm with you there Scott. I think they were dead last versus the run and we tried about 2 runs and then threw 900 times.

We did the same thing against the Bucs a few years back. They had a really bad run defense and we went down there in a monsoon and threw the ball the entire game, and lost.

With 4 backs and one on the P.S. we could definitely do damage late in the season, 2 bulls Ivory and Ingram, 2 versatile P.T and Sproles, you could game plan a lot of ways with all that talent. Bell waiting in the wings, I see no problem unless one gets unhappy with their playing time, Payton won't have any problem child on the team.
