Commit to Sproles


I am on the bandwagon now of giving Darren Sproles more of a shot to carry this team. Sure L.T. put up over 4 yards per carry vs the Raiders while Sproles was below 3, but you simply cannot count on Tomlinson being healthy at this point. There was a reason the Chargers put the franchise tag on Sproles, and that's they realize that he is an important part of their future.

The Chargers have a trememdous load of talent, and many have put them at or near the top of the AFC. They cannot continue to put a lot of stock in Tomlinson, and have to know at this point that Sproles is the better back, and as long as Tomlinson is out, the stock on Sproles is only going to go up. They need to make that commitment to Sproles full-time now.
