Is the NFL star running back on the way out for good because of the squad system?
With the growing use of the multiple running back system, are star running backs in danger of becoming obsolete?
Sure, you could argue that. However, a feature back still is a feared asset for NFL teams. Take Jacksonville for example. While Rashad Jennings and Deji Karim do get carries, the bulk goes to Maurice Jones-Drew. When MJD is in the game, it frees up every other part of the offense.
Legarrette Blount in Tampa Bay is making a name for himself as a future feature back. If the newly-unretired Tiki Barber does come back, it'll likely be at Tampa and his role will be more as a mentor than a multiple-down player.
Like DJ said, featured star backs open the field for everyone. However, teams like the Eagles, Packers, Patriots dont need a running back to be successful as they rely on the passing game so much almost to a fault at times
