the problem is that you incorrectly think that people want to go back to old school football. it's balanced football using all the weapons in their arsenal...and it isn't reducing the role newton has. it's building up the pieces around it and being able to make the team even more diverse and dynamic than it would be with newton and just one or two joe schmoes back there getting the once in a while hand off.
.....and our RBs rushed the ball less than anytime in franchise history most likely last year (would have to double check it).
We need to continue to run. We don't need to line up in power run formations and pound the rock more making the overall offense less dangerous.
I am just amazed that Newton came in and did his thing.....and the first thing people want to do is reduce his role and emphasize going back to old school football.
it's just crazy to have all of that talent on the team and not use all of it to it's fullest.
again, newton isn't the only talented performer...we shouldn't act like he is. get as many people involved as possible. make as many people as possible the focus so that defenses can be better taken advantage of. use what you've got.
