    Draft a quality RB and USE him in 2022. Stop this nonsense that 21 should get most of the loaf of bread anymore . 20 is a FA after next season , thanks Tony good luck please Jerry no more second mega deals at RB . And Zeke has maybe another yr in the gas tank .Not a thing wrong with rotating backs through out the game .

    As I posted...fix the OL, new OC. Then Zeke will be fine.
    Tony can't carry the load for 17 games. Fans need to get over that dream.

    Depending Zekes contract, and Tony leaving as a FA in 2023, that is when you draft a RB. If one is there as BPA, maybe you take him this draft. But that would be more of a luxury at this time. This team can't afford a luxury pick. Best wait until 2023.

    Fix the running game? All it takes is fixing the OL. When healthy, look at the running game early in the year.

    got unlucky with fred beard

    #77 hurt all the time

    a dominant center and left tackle goes a long way in fixing the problem.

    not continuing to play injured RB would help as well

    Despite the narrative the FO and fans have spun, you don't need to spend premium picks on offensive linemen. You need a better talent evaluator.

    - Upgrade OL player personnel
    - Upgrade OC and OL coach
    - Upgrade at TE
    - Better utilize touches and designs among Zeke/Pollard.

    LOL. Kellen Moore has two running plays in his playbook. Kellen Moore is not going anywhere.

    We need two or three upgrades on the OL to fix it and maybe add a blocking FB. Go back to what we did in the 90s and find a Moose Johnston to lead the way.

    Not sure about either back through a 17 game stretch . If one goes down Ito Smith & Jaquan Hardy are not it . Corey Clement bring him back league minimum but I’ve also posted on multiple threads a starter on O line has to come out of this draft two would be great .

    Yeah much as I love Zeke he's a physical player who plays the most physically demanding position in the sport. It would not be unreasonable to think that missing a game or three every year will become the norm for him so the team needs to have a better plan than "just put a brace on and keep playing at 60% capability." Pollard got hurt on half the snaps Zeke was getting so that's not a good bet either.. This team needs a solid plan B at running back.. but nothing will fix the running game if a) The line continues to struggle and b) Moore continues to think delay handoff up the middle is the only way to run the ball. Somebody needs to get it through his head that there are other ways to run the ball. Hell he has used many of them himself.. but for some reason he always reverts to "delay handoff up the middle"... Until that gets fixed, the running game aint goin nowhere..
