It's stupid when 1 running back has ALL your carries in a game.

We should be giving a modest effort to emulate real life. Would it EVER happen irl where a starting RB has 25 carries and the backup has 0?

No.

Madden's fatigue system is obviously broken, doesn't mean you have to take advantage of it.

Hi :woot:

i agree but i don't think there should ever be a minimum or maximum number. Throughout the games, there are always times where your backup can get some carries. However, coaches ride the hot hand constantly in the nfl, or if the backup is prone to fumble or something, your not going to give him a carry up 3 with 6 minutes left just because you don't want someone in the league to think you are giving the #1 rb too many carries.

I definitely agree with you cstate about not worrying about the carry with 3 min left and blah blah... But it's just a general throughout the game thing, for example Knile Davis is an absolute stud and should be getting at least 5 carries throughout a game in my opinion to spell Charles.

Same thing for Blount in Pittsburgh.

I have a RBBC as with the Saints in real life so I think I had 4 backs carry the ball in my last game at least 5 times each.. And when I was trying to get a couple yards for an easier field goal in OT I gave Pierre Thomas his first touches of the game, as he has that 96 carrying

35 rushes to Marshawn. And 1 to Christine Michael is what I'm talking about.

I'm sorry but I don't see that much differently than if I had 17 receptions by Odell, and 0 by Randle, 1 by Cruz, and 0 by my TE.

As long as its 1 maybe 2 times a season thats fine, it does happen sometimes in the NFL look at the Pats vs Colts game this week Gray ran 38 times compared to Vereen's 1 carry. Very rare that it happens tho.

I would have gotten on Rooks' case about that in a minor way if not for what Le'Veon did last night and what Gray did Sunday.... It happens, rarely, so like Pats said as long as it happens a time or two throughout a season and in the playoffs then OK.
