Whisenhunt's got full faith in his abilities or he wouldn't be feeding him the rock that often. Not to mention the Cardinals made virtually no offseason efforts to bring someone in to challenge Edge or take over his job. Felix Jones, Reshard Mendenhall and Chris Johnson were all on the board when the Cardinals picked in the draft, and they passed on them all because they still have faith that Edge has something left to give. Sure, Hightower may steal some goal line snaps, but it's not because Edgerrin is washed up.
Exactly, I don't get why so many people put him down. Most people drafted him as their RB3 yet he consistently puts up RB2 stats, sometimes RB1 stats with a good match up. I gladly took him in the fifth round.
