    Pretty much. I have alwayas felt RBs needed to take snaps to get a feel for the game. Having a tandem SHOULD help Wilson's and Brown's game and season longevity

    Neither has shown patience. I can buy Wilson can learn, but Bradshaw is who he is at this point.

    I don't think they would have let Bradshaw go for a guy comming back from an injury. I think they are counting on Wilson.

    It's funny how when our line plays well, like in 2008 AB's vision was never called into question. Now that are line has struggled in run blocking now it's AB's fault the running game isn't as dominant. AB was and is a great cutback runner with really good vision. When the holes are there he hits them. He doesn't hit the hole as fast as Brown, but his vision and running lane choice are far from poor. When the line struggled AB struggled. Because Brown is more of a one cut and go RB his running style is more conducive to an average run blocking team like we were in 2012.

    RBs in general, except for rare instances, are just like QBs, receiving way too much credit for success and too much blame for a poor running game. I'll take a great O-line and a crap back over a good RB and a crappy Oline any day of the week.

    I hope you are right as Bradshaw is a Colt now
    My eyes tell me different......one thing Bradshaw does for a little guy is bowl people over. I have not seen that from Wilson

    .....Wow. Not sure why u would think brown is one of the best backs in the nfl... He has only rushed for 100 yds in one game in his career and got injured when given the chance to step up and prove he is an every down back. In a league where there are now so many proven rbs, saying he is one the best in the nfl is a ridiculous stretch. Maybe u or someone else can enlighten me?

    Yeah I'm hoping that it tires out defense with the change of pace from both players.Hopefully the running game will be like '08.

    Did you just compare Dayne to Wilson? LOL, c'mon seriously?

    When you say one of the best RBs in the league do you mean like top 20, or like top 5?
