Running back by committe blows if the indication is that a back with not get more than 65% of the snaps. Wells had a pretty good game for being the 3rd back. And yes it does get a player into a game more where they can see up close and personal the other teams' players. A back can identify players that are dinged up, don't have a good reaction time to a certain move, whether a defensive player is tired or is getting handled. Vision in my opinion is very important for the running back and how many times have you seen a back get minimal yards in the 1st half and wears down the defense in the 2nd and puts up some good numbers? I don't like that philosphy and probably never will. Just a difference in opinion.
