Too many carries. Taylor is the one you keep. At the same time I think you continue to split carries at about a 60-40 rate. You don't need to get Taylor hurt. That's the worst case scenario.
Jamal Lewis - 1411 carries
LaDainian Tomlinson - 1574 carries, 322 receptions
Shaun Alexander - 1579 carries, 182 receptions
Edgerrin James - 2075 carries, 340 receptions
Yeah, I can see how you'd say he's had too many carries. And please, don't try to say how he's a, "big bruiser" who takes more punishment. He bounces to the outside more than James does. For whatever reason, he's written it in this year (which brings up a whole new set of problems in and of itself).
