Default Re: Will the wheels fall off of Parker?

I don't know, but it seems to me that before all this "running back by committee stuff", I seem to remember lot's of NFL RB's carrying the ball 25 times a game (which averages 400 carries a season).

In 79, Campbell and Payton were at 368 and 369. 80 was Campbell at 373. In 83 Dickerson carried 390 times. 84 Dickerson carried 379 and Payton carried 381. Gerald Riggs carried the ball 397 times the next year, after 353 the year before. Dickerson carried it 404 times in 86.

I think this 370 thing might be a bit of a red herring.
