NO leading rusher 602 yards - 29 pts/G
DEN leading rusher 731 yards - 30 pts/G
NE rusher 667 yards - 32 pts/G. (their rb now is a luxury)
Why have all these offenses been putting up big points year after year without a feature back and the Steelers can't?
RB should be drafted late- they have short careers and they are busts often. I'd rather have an OL or DL 1st that plays 13 years than a RB who plays 4.
Difference is Rodgers, Brees and Peyton (and Brady) are clearly much better than Ben (not saying Ben is anything worse than great).
