Falcons RB's Michael Turner, Jacquizz Rodgers To Share Carries
The Falcons backfield is now a committee and Michael Turner will share the rock with Jacquizz Rodgers going forward.
It took eleven games. It took multiple games where Michael Turner averaged less than two yards a carry and it took the finest game of young Jacquizz Rodgers' career. What matters is that the moment a majority of fans, analysts and sentient rocks have been calling for has come to pass.
Mike Smith confirmed this in remarkable clear words to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
"We feel like Jacquizz is a very viable option to carry the football and has done a nice job for us," Falcons coach Mike Smith said. "It has become more of the vogue thing to do, to have a ‘running back by committee.’"
