I'm aware of that development, but I'll try and clarify the point of the post. If Faulk doesn't restructure, I think one could count on SJax to post 15-22 carries per game (or 18 -27 "touches") without a reliable backup. With Faulk still on the squad, MM still has a guy in Faulk who is more familiar with that offense than any other player in the organization, still has a nose for the endzone (ie: goaline carries), and a guy who Martz really respects (ie: MM ain't just gonna let him rot on the bench).
Bottom line: SJax loses 5-10 "touches"/game with Faulk remaining in the lineup.
