Congrats! You gave the only logical and thought out response in this thread (including mine, lol)Miami as an example?
Didn't Foster miss three games where Tate averaged 22 carries as opposed to the 8 carries he averaged in the other 13 games?
Green Bay's 1137 yards and 3 TDs combined is hardly something to write home about.
Isn't that 5 out of 32 teams? Guess you could write the same thing for 26 coaches other than Gailey.
How many of those 5 above - of which i would throw out threee - had the injuries the Bills had and were forced to line up their back-up at WR?
Not to mention isn't not like Jackson was running the ball 30 times a game. His 17 attempts per game was 12th in the league. Basically on par with most starters.
MJD - 21.4
Foster - 21.4
Lynch - 19
Turner - 18.8
Benson - 18.2
McCoy - 18.2
Rice - 18.2
Gore - 17.6
Wells - 17.5
S Jackson - 17.3
Peterson - 17.3
F Jackson - 17
Forte - 16.9
Hightower - 16.8
McGahee - 16.6
Johnson - 16.4
17 carries isn't bad. I certianlly wouldn't want to reduce it much. Why would you take the ball out of the hands of a guy playing like the MVP?
Seriously on that - he was getting all sorts of MVP talk, and at the top of the league in a number of categories with guys who had more touches and you want to give him the ball even less?
Do you really think that the Falcons should suddenly stop giving the ball to Turner simply because he turned 30?
You must put the ball in the hands of your most productive players to get the most production. Jackson is the most productive back they have and one of the most in the league. You give him the ball. Should Spiller get more touches? Yeah but not at the expense of Jackson's.
