As good as our passing weapons will be we still need to run the ball to prevent Cutler going for too many high risk throws and to get the defense off the field and resting up. A veteran back might do the job but I'd love to find a gem of a rookie RB who not only can reduce the snaps Forte has to take but can even cover for him if he's out injured (and he's played a lot of games banged up these last few years). The success rate of late draft pick backs who are fresh and hungry for success has been higher than the success rate of banged up veterans on cheap deals from what I can tell of late. I'm not convinced Emery can find a difference maker in the late rounds of the draft on defense anyway. He can't even nail the guys in the first 2 rounds on defense the last couple of drafts. Let's hope that changes first.
