Think about the Super Bowl winners the past several years. Giants, Packers, Saints, Steelers, Colts, etc. Who were their RBs? Didn't really matter all that much...
The other problem with running back is they are a bit like relief pitchers and hockey goalies. When they're good, they're very useful. But its way too hard to tell ahead of time who's going to be good and who's going to disappoint that it rarely makes sense to shell out big bucks for a running back.
The difference is that unlike relief pitchers and hockey goalies, you can win without a top notch running game.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
