Agree. I'm totally confident our coaches know infinitely more about what's best for our running backs than me, but from my recliner there's absolutely no justification for allowing Mike to get so beat up and tired that it compromises his ability to play, his injury avoidance reflects and ball security. There's simply too much talent in our backfield to sacrifice our best on the alter of invincibility.
