Just curious to see what everyone is hoping for going forward as far as our RB situation goes?
I was wrong when I predicted that AB would be splitting carries 50/50 by week 6, but for me it's a little bit of a dilemma because it is obvious that even though he is our best choice right now as a reliable starter he is beginning to near that age for a running back. And with 2 studs behind him, I'm just curious as to what we would hope for as far as playing time going forward? I think it's obvious that our staff believes that at this point Andre Brown is going to be the safer choice to carry the rest of the load than David Wilson may be, yet David has a lot more long term potential.
For that reason, is it a risk to Keep David in more of a return/situation type role when he clearly has more upside potential, or should we throw him in now in a more active role even though he may not be as ready as Brown, but could produce more in the long run with more of a risk in the short term?
My guess at this point is that we see Andre Brown filling the majority of the carries that AB doesn't get, and continue to use David in kickoffs and situational plays. Maybe perhaps even lining him up outside occasionally for screens / end arounds.
I'm a bit torn here because I don't know what the ideal split will be. AB won't be around for much longer and I want to see David get more actual carries so he can develop into what we all know that he can be, but for right now how do we ignore Andre Browns recent play when he was called upon out of nowhere?
