The Tom Brady-Bill Belichick dynasty actually lacks something: a 100-yard rusher in the Super Bowl for the New England Patriots.
Perhaps that's the best way to explain why it's been a decade since a title game winner reached a mark often reserved for Super Bowl MVPs. It also illustrates how the game has changed since Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith and Terrell Davis were carrying the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos to championships.
Sunday's Super Bowl between the Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles will be the 20th since the last time a running back was the MVP: Davis.
" Philadelphia defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said. "People use running backs in a lot of different roles and they use running backs,"I think gone are probably the days of the one running back that carries the ball 35 times,Authentic Sean Lee Jersey, but by specialty.",Authentic Emmitt Smith Jersey, I don't want to say by committee
who have combined for just three 100,i-yard rushing games all season.,That's a pretty good way to describe both these teamsAuthentic Jason Witten Jersey,
the heralded midseason acquisition by the Eagles in a trade,Jay Ajayi,womens Nolan Carroll Jersey, who led the Patriots with just 31 yards last year when New England threw almost non-stop in the second half while rallying from 25 points down to beat Atlanta.,womens Dak Prescott Jersey, doesn't have the one for Philadelphia. It belongs to LeGarrette Blount
which incidentally included a 100-yard game for Chicago's Thomas Jones.,Authentic Tyron Smith Jersey,The most recent Super Bowl winner with a 100-yard rusher was Indianapolis with Dominic Rhodes in 2007
when the Seahawks infamously threw an interception at the goal line instead of giving the ball to their bruising runner for the potential winning touchdown.,Authentic Zack Martin Jersey,The last 100-yard rusher in the Super Bowl was Seattle's Marshawn Lynch against the Patriots three years ago
" said Ajayi,womens Travis Frederick Jersey,"There was a period of time where the running back position was being -- quote, unquote -- devalued in some way, who had two 100-yard games for Miami before the trade and is averaging 59 yards in nine games, with the Eagles., including the playoffsAuthentic Dak Prescott Jersey
especially on our team,"As of recent,Authentic Nolan Carroll Jersey,f you look across the league,womens Jason Witten Jersey, the running game is essential,womens Tyron Smith Jersey, I take pride in showcasing how the position can be a game-changer in every game.",womens Zack Martin Jersey," Ajayi said. "For me personally
The Eagles finished third in rushing during the regular season and had a pair of 200-yard games. They have restored a three-back rotation despite the season-ending injury to Darren Sproles. Ajayi and Blount get help from third-down back Corey Clement.
"I think the teams that have an opportunity to go to the postseason,Authentic Travis Frederick Jersey,Authentic Cole Beasley Jersey," Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. "You have to stay patient and diligent there. That's something we've been able to do all season long. It's something we stay committed to.",womens Cole Beasley Jersey,womens Sean Lee Jersey,womens Emmitt Smith Jersey, they do have the ability to run the football
