Re: The Running Game

Torain.

He knows the system better, he has been more productive than Hightower if you compare their bodies of work in this offensive system - and Torain was productive even when the offensive line wasn't as good as they are now. I think 3 out of his last 4 (or 4/5) games are 100+ yards rushing.

After his performance last week, I think it would be hard to not keep him as the starter.

But, like most have said...it is a good problem to have and I wouldn't be disappointed either way.

This. Exactly.
