No it's not. RB needs to get in a rhythm and get a feel for the game. 2 running backs, fine. 3 not good. 4, frick

We've had success the last 2 weeks sticking with ivory and Ingram, no reason to change it up.

Didn't Mark get 3 carries from the one yard line to run out clock/time outs against the falcons?

Also, one of Ivory's runs was a 56 yarder, which is kind of throwing off his YPC...not that he didn't earn it, but almost half of his yards came on one run.

Hmmmmm

re: Chris Ivory tells Coaches "Stick with me".


alas my point concerning rhythm, Ivory has been in less than half the snaps of PT23, all 3 have rotated without anyone getting such feel of the game and it has worked.

I would rather they trade Ingram and keep "The Kraken"


Ivory also provides the team with black spiced rum so bonus points.

They're both one dimensional backs. I think a big part of the new found running success is on Kromer going back to exclusively coaching the OLine. If Sproles can play, you have to play him. The guy boke the record for all purpose yards last season and averaged like 7ypc. I think PT is our second best back, but I would have no problem going with a mostly 2 back system like you say, even if PT were an odd man out. But if they do that, Sproles HAS to be one of the two. As good as a screen back as PT is, no one gameplans for him (or Ivory, and definitely not Ingram). Sproles gives DCs nightmares.

IMO, let Ingram be the inactive player until one of the others gets hurt.
