As most of you know, Maurice Jones-Drew played the 2010 season with a torn meniscus. He didn't just play injured, he played well. In 14 games, Maurice Jones-Drew carried the ball 299 times, which came on the heels of a 312 carry season. For comparison's sake, Fred Taylor had more than 299 carries just once in his career (345 in 2003). That was also his best year.
Whether Jones-Drew wants to admit it or not, I think it's time for the workload to be shared. In 2006 and 2007, Fred Taylor carried the ball 231 and 223 times respectively. In those years, Jones-Drew had 166 and 167 carries. Last season, Rashad Jennings had just 84 carries which included a pair of late-season starts. I have to conclude from those stats that Jennings should be given more of the workload in 2011.
