    It's not like San Diego and Kansas City don't have great backup RBs. Michael Turner is a future pro bowler and Michael Bennett is a starter quality RB (injuries denied that though).

    LT/Turner and LJ/Bennett are both way better than Dillon/Maroney or McAllister/Bush. It's not like LJ and LT are the only backs on their teams, they share some carries (albeit not as much as in NE or NO)

      Bennett did nothing when given a shot at starting in Minny. The only tihng he has proven is track speed. He hasn't proven anything in the run game.

        The Jaguars had a great two-back set this year.

        Fred Taylor was the undisputed starter, but he was spelled by Drew, a guy who could be a undisputed starter in the right offense (The West Coast Offense to be precise--- one that gives him enough touches, but doesn't overuse him in the running game while honing on his receiving talent) in his own right.

          Better for the Team. Keeps guys healthier. Fresh Legs more often....

          I think im going with the two back tandem. But if I got LT he'll touch the ball 25 times a game atleast....

                addai/rhodes
                dillen/maroney
                jones/benson
                mcalister/bush
                With the top 3 rhodes, maroney and benson weren't drafted to do a rotation but soon be the sole starter. In a couple of years all of those will be the starter and I doubt we'll see a balanced rotation, excluding Bush.

                I think its important to have some kind of rotation, even if its very uneven like 3-1 or 4-1 so you don't end up with LJ running to death.
                "We're only going to score 17 points?" Brady said before chuckling about it. "OK. Is Plax playing defense? I wish he had said 45-42 and gave us a little credit for scoring more points."

                  Like that would happen...

                  Wait...

                      perry is a real good pass catcher........ he deserves a shot to start somewhere

                          with the #2 pick... the lions should shore up the defense or qb.. but they might be tempted to go with adrian peterson

                          a peterson/jones combo will be scary........

                          though its doubtful, millen is unpredictable :D

                            It depends who the RB's are. A duo of Jones and Barber will be much better than Cadillac Williams alone, but much worse than LDT alone

                              I like 2 backs.

                              And there are many more beyond the 4 teams in the Conference Championships: Dallas (MB3, JJ), Jax (MJD, Fred), Denver (Bell, Bell), San Diego (LT, Turner), NYG (Tiki, Jacobs), Carolina (D'Ang, Foster), to name some.

                              Being a Viking fan, I have noticed that Brad Childress has a penchant for giving ONLY one running back all the carries in a game. After Chester Taylor's team-leading 304 carries, the next highest on the team was Artose Pinner with 40. And when Chester Taylor missed a game (@ DET), he gave 30 carries to Artose Pinner. I think this is troubling because, imo, 2 different backs can thrive against different teams and get into a rhythm at different times. I have often seen one RB struggle and the backup spells him and thrives. I think it's a huge negative to rely solely on one guy unless he is a superstar. I don't think the Vikes will ever have a truly great run game until Childress divies up the carries.

                                especially with chester, who was in his 1st year of a full time starter, and you could tell he was wearing down....
