If you guys don't think RB depth is important, think back to the 2005 NFCC game verses Seattle. Because of injuries Nick Goings was our starting RB. Nick Goings. His backup was rookie Jamal Robertson who had yet to play in any game outside of preseason. We were slaughtered 34-14.

They aren't good.
His TD/Int is better than when he is under pressure though. Just off memory, that's something like 7-6 vs 2-7 last year.
"Reasonably effective" isn't what I would call it, but I understand someone employed by the panthers can't say "the starting QB is trash on a good day and a dumpster fire on a bad one."
