Haha nah Bruce Miller for his career averages like 1 carry every 3 games. He should not be getting 3-5 a game. That's pretty much 1 carry every other series and that would be ridiculous. I don't think we should ever go into a game expecting Miller to carry the ball. If a situation should arise like a 3rd and an inch and Gore is winded or something, then you consider it. But that's about it (though obviously a moot point for rest of season with his injury). And I don't even mind the workload Hunter's been getting this year, especially because it looks like that Achilles for much of the year has prevented him from flashing his 2011 or 2012 form. But I'm pretty sure in 14 of the 16 games, he was worked into the game and entered the field on offense no later than the end of our 2nd series and then in those 2 games just randomly was riding the pine until midway through the 4th quarter. Just really, really, really bizarre and it's soooo frustrating that no beat writers or anyone associated with the team mentions, acknowledges, or questions that. Again, it feels like I'm the only person in the world that realizes this or is perplexed by this or wants an explanation lol
