No Easton, Sirles or Remmers. So yes.

Yep... he wore down. He is not an all-game, every down back.

Vikings are #10 in rushing. Can't we just say they compliment each other. Neither would be good as an exclusive back

That's what I've been trying to say about him. He's never going to carry a load. Murray can

That's kind of what I'm trying to say. We need them both to be productive, and each brings a different set of skills. Run the one that's working better in the matchup.

Sure. I just want the better back that gets more YPC to "lead" the share at a 70-30 clip or thereabouts. But, then, I like positive yardage. :)

For the Vikings or NFL?

He's tied with Jared Allen and Jim Marshall for the team record.
