We are not RB by committee because of production.

Mark Ingram is no where near the answer to getting away from the committee approach.

1 healthy season out of 3 is not the basket where you sink all of your eggs.

Re: Running Game Week 16

I'd like to see Robinson run a couple of more against Tampa. Still not sold on Ingram. We may be show casing him for a trade next season.
We've got PT, Sproles , Cadet and Robinson. Sproles and PT are the best two but are getting older. Still, I think we're set at RB.

I'd at least like to see consecutive carries a few times each game.

We swap RB's on every play.

Yes. I agree.

What's interesting and strange at the same time is that we are the least running team in the league (reason not the point), but are very heavily invested in that position.

We carry 5 RBs and spend 9.35M in cap to not run the ball.

We carry 5 WRs and spend 10.7M in cap.

We may have 5 rbs incase majority of them go down like NFCC in San Fran.

I wasnt talking about giving the reigns to mark ingram solely, i just want to see an offensive drive where the same player stays in for more than 2 plays at a time

Im tired of seeing ingram hit a 8-11 yard run, getting replaced by sproles, then we run a screen which loses 4 yards

Our offense has always been that way.... It's our passing game as well. Jimmy Graham doesn't get back to back passes, neither does Sproles.

Most don't realize it but that is what happens the majority of the time on most NFL teams. The back that breaks one open for 30 yards and is tackled on the 3 yard line is rarely the back that is allowed to punch it in.

I learned this playing fantasy football, can't tell you how many times I see my back make a huge gain to the red zone only to be left asking WTF as someone else carries it in.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Having them is not the interesting/odd part; it's the having but not using.
