Again you miss the point as usual. You assume that the running game was good by using total yard stats. When I point out that we didn't run that often so you can't assume that we will run the same next year you go to the O line. We actually ran the ball more times this year than last. Why? We had fewer bigger plays and first down runs There is no guarantee we will fare better next year than this year. You can't account for injuries and other factors that make a difference. So using 2011 numbers for anything is a small sample that may be unique and not representative of what we do next year. Plus without Williams big play potential I doubt we do as well as we did this year. So we will likely have to run more to get the same production which again will wear Stewart out. Regardless of the o line
Not missing anything.
Point I made was we were the best ground attack in the NFL in 2011 (historically good). We did so without leaning on any particular rusher......2011 supports the fact you don't need to primarily run 1
Running Stewart 10 times a game won't wear him out.
Yeah, injuries happen and then can change your ideal scenarios and throw things out the window. You can work around that in your rush attack. No biggie if Stewart blows a tire and we have to adjust.....a bigger deal is if Smith blows a tire or some one at a more important position.
We simply built our roster wrong. Easy to find rushers if someone goes down....and we already have tons of talent unlike most teams if that happens. Need to worry about improving our roster and less about keeping this silly overload of talent in the backfield together
