Problems with these studies include the fact that traditionally most teams had 1 back who got all the work meaning that we don't have much data on teams sharing backs like we do. Most teams who employ a 2 back system don't keep both of them beyond their rookie contracts. Secondly, the decline often starts earlier so the decline between 29-30 is not that precipitous. third, productive backs in their late 20s are most likely to stay productive into their early thirties.

Yeah, I thought about the impact having two backs might have. The wear and tear of one back who gets 20 carries over 16 games is a lot of pounding.....Just saw the Chud hiring on TV... Shocker!!!
