Default Running Back By Committee

Dom Capers said Thursday that they are going to use the running back-by-committee approach for the Vikings on Sunday.

I know that some people frown on this because the wisdom goes that if the runner only gets nine to 10 carries per game, he'll never get a better feel for the flow of the game and where the cutback lanes are located.

But that only applies if you have a stud running back, and it's become very apparent to me at least, that the Texans don't have one. And second, when they try to use DD for the 'workhorse' role, the offense becomes too one-dimensional.

So, I think it's good that they've decided to go with this approach. All three running backs bring a different strength into the game, and it will keep them fresher, and less likely they will get beat up over the long grind of the season. Plus, if one of them goes down with an injury, the other two can take over with less effect on the offense. And finally, I think it keeps the main focus on throwing the football.

I've noticed that the Eagles are going with three running backs this season and they aren't playing too bad.
