The comparison to Warrick is presicely what I was thinking before I scrolled down to Heat's post. Westy broke down with 116 carries last year, is a small back ( 5'8'', listed at 200 lbs.), and works in a pass first offense.
I think it's fair to say that most of us hate the RBBC approach, but coaches like Reid and Mariucci make it work for their teams, not ours.
