we worked well with a 3 back rotation in '09: pierre was the hammer and all purpose, reggie was the change of pace, and mike bell was the short yardage.
It also worked incredibly well in 2011 when we were 4th in rushing. If all of the backs had the same style then I'd be fine with just giving it to 1 guy, but they all bring a different dynamic to the offense. They are chess pieces that the complex scheme utilizes to confuse defense with different looks.
The one back that wasn't used right in 11 was Ingram, but I believe this year Payton will have a better idea of how exactly to use him. Nonetheless, Sproles, Ingram, and PT, all have completely different styles and can do different things. I am all for whatever will give the team and edge, and if complicating different ways to use all the back is what works, I am all for it.
Not sure what exactly the organization plans to do with The Kraken going forward.
