I would love to see both Gore and Westbrook in the backfield next year, splitting touches.
They are not over if you have a guy who can run, catch, and block. There is still room for the Gore's, MJD's, Peterson's, CJ's, and Jackson's of the world.
You can be successful in many ways.
You completely missed the point of DW's post.
I like the current RBs on the squad. And Dixon could be good, can't really say.
But I am envious of the teams with one(or both) of two unique types (i) the bowling balls with speed; Rice at Baltimore, Turner at Atlanta, Jones-Drew at Jacksonville, and (ii) the pure speed game breakers; CJ at Tennessee, Charles at KC. We need one of each. Does anyone feel Dixon could be our bowling ball?
In any case, we do have to have a RB committe, as DW says.
