The days of having one running back do all of the work seem to be over, and that must make running backs everywhere sad.
Steven Jackson should be making a case for himself since he is currently a free agent (played for the Atlanta Falcons the last two seasons), but he is actually more focused on helping all of his running back peers.
The former Pro Bowl running back has launched a campaign to bring back every-down running back: SaveTheRunningBack.org
Jackson even made a promotional video for the website.
Of all the features that the website has to offer, the coolest one has to be the way it allows you to contact your franchise in regards to how they view their running back(s). All you have to do is put in your email, name and the team you want to contact – and boom – the deed is done.
While this obviously won’t change anything, it is still a comical effort from a running back that has had to go through the vicious cycle of his position. Jackson used to be a do-it-all player that would get more than 300 carries in one season, but now he has failed to even get 200 in his last two seasons.
For most NFL teams, the new running-back-by-committee formula seems to be the best option.
