The running back position in the NFL is in the process of morphing from one typified by the stud bull of yesteryear who could carry the ball 30 times per game into a complete running back by committee league. Even old school studs like Maurice Jones-Drew, Arian Foster and Ray Rice don't often run the ball more than 25 times per game and you can be sure the Vikings will give Toby Gerhart a good amount of carries this season in hopes of protecting their investment in Adrian Peterson.The New England Patriots are no different from the rest of the league in this respect. Based on their history, you could say New England’s been way ahead of the curve. Not since the days of Corey Dillon has New England been a true one-back team. BenJarvis Green-Ellis was solid but between New England's pass-first offense and the emergence of Danny Woodhead, the “Law Firm” wasn’t a typical number one running back. BJGE is now in Cincinnati, so now we have to wonder who, if anyone, will lead the Patriots running game?
