What does this tell us? Unless you have a superstar RB, and there are only a couple it in the league....
Two running backs good.
One running back to handle the entire load bad.
Good points. We don't have a superstar running back (unless it's buried deep within Jones/I know, but I can still hope). We do have two good, not great, but good backs. And we still haven't tapped their full potential yet.
