I understand your point but someone else can carry the ball too. Brown, with all his injury problems ran for as many yards total the last two years and with a higher average than Eddie the previous two years. Eddie didn't ever go to the sidelines but his production sucked. Brown is a better blocker and pass reciever than Eddie as well. If Brown can get as many yards carrying the ball 200 times as Eddie got carrying the ball 300 times that is being productive. It is the total effectivness that we are looking for in our run game. In an ideal situation I would like to see White and Brown split carries with Brown getting the bulk of 3rd down and 2nd and long and White doing more of the dirty work. Still the idea is to have success on each play not to give our iron man awards. If Payton never got hurt but ran for a yard per carry less would that make him more productive than Brown?
