I know it's Calvin Watkins so it doesn't warrant this level of thought or response, but there are two things wrong with this.
1. We used only two runners earlier in the season. Choice averaged about one carry per game over the first 10 weeks of the season. So, the "success" if there's been any hasn't been with reducing the trio of running backs down to two.
2. As percy's thread shows, there hasn't been any more success
running the ball lately than before. The difference, of course, is that we're simply running more, not better.
