Are Cowboys Planning For Darren McFadden To Be The Lead Back?

Everyone believes that the Cowboys will not have a running back get 392 carries again like they did last year. But, what is the plan for whoever gets the role as the lead back? How many carries could he expect to get? The running back by committee (RBBC) approach does not mean taking two or more backs and dividing up the carries equally. Normally when a team does the the RBBC approach they will have one back that takes the majority of the carries and then the other backs will get a few series to spell him during the game. What the Cowboys did last year was not the normal method for teams in...

Could The Cowboys Offensive Line Resurrect Darren McFadden's Career?

Playing running back in the National Football League is a young man's game. The wear and tear on a body is just too much, but big things are hoped for out of eighth-year back Darren McFadden. He was once the fourth overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, but Darren McFadden has only turned in first round type numbers once in his professional career. That was in 2010 when he eclipsed the 1,000 yard barrier for the only time in his career. Take away that 1,157 yard season and McFadden is pretty pedestrian as a professional running back. There is nothing to suggest that he gained over 4,500 yards...
