Give it to DeDe!!!!

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of the two back system. I remember watching in college as New England won Super Bowls with a pretty average backfield of Antoine Smith and Kevin Faulk. I remember saying, "how can this team beat us when they have a backfield like that and we have Edge?" Well it took me awhile to realize it, but the two back system saves your running backs from injury and overuse. During the playoffs Edge looked like a worn down horse. Then during this past season both Addai and Rhodes were fresh and healthy and both of them contributed that fact to the two back system.

Now with Rhodes gone I am just praying that we continue with this philosophy. I don't care if Addai is averaging 5.5 yards a carry I still say he touches the ball 12-20 times a game. It is just far too important to keep your running backs fresh. So please Mr. Dungy give the ball to DeDe Dorsey at least 5-10 times a game.
