Why would I hate our 3rd down back. Just because he's injury-prone and fragile ?You must really hate Chris Thompson then....
Love is Thompson's eventual replacement.
The way New England does it is the right way to do it, too. They would bring Sony Michelle in for the entire 1st Q, and some of the 2nd. Then, they'd bring White in on a drive or 2 into the 2nd Q.Not too many teams have a running back that they give the ball to 30 times a game any longer.
Look at New England. They employ 2-3 very good backs that have complementary skills and work them into the running and passing game to keep defenses off balance.
To me that is the 'wave' of the future.
The days of John Riggins getting 375-390 carries a year for the most part is over.
