    Andre Brown needs to stay healthy. However, I think he's an every down back, and will get plenty of work this season.

    Wilson is a home run threat, though. He's a guy the other team needs to specifically gameplan for.

    Honestly, I'm cool with whatever ratio works best......I will flip out if Gilbride pulls another "Lumpkin" on us late in the season.

    We haven't had a starting running back since Barber retired. It's been RB by committee andf it will continue to be that way. Which RB is on the field for the 1st play of the game is simply circumstantial.

    If Wilson can improve his pass protection - and I think he will - then he could become very close to what we had with Tiki.

    Wilson is physically more impressive than Tiki, but Tiki had field vision that frankly nobody has matched since he retired.

    Andre Brown grades out well in pretty much every important category - speed, power, patience, blocking and cutback ability......he really is a solid player, and if he can stay healthy, is a huge value.

    also really havent a consistently healthy RB since then either. Bradshaw and Jacobs...as effective as they were one or both were always nicked up or worse.
    I would like to see a healthy backfield for a change.....

    I agree. The days of the "featured back" or the "starter" are gone except for a few special situations. Having a change of pace tandem makes much more sense and the opponent or game situation should dictate who is on the field rather than labels like starter or backup.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    Yes but from the game Brown took over as starter to his injury the 2nd back in was Bradshaw not Wilson

    I agree Wilson has huge upside potential but he is just not there yet......his positive runs are spectacular but lacking patience, vision and down low power he is not a back you can rely upon as a "move the chains" type of back. Give him a big hole like little Joe Morris used to get though and he is a virtual Morris clone. If you can put Brad Benson in a time machine, get him off that car lot, and have his 4 buddies re-born too, Wilson would be a 1200 yd back.

    I think we need to see how much he has developed in the preseason before we can judge how far along he is.
