Doing some digging trying to figure out who was the most consistent NFL running back from carries 1-10 and then from 11-20, But also wanted to see what offensive lines were the most consistent when it came to early in the game all the way to final whistle.

It seems like the most consistent back in the NFL on a  per carry average was DeAngelo Williams of the Panthers as he averaged 5.6 yards per carry on 160 carries that would count in the first 10 carries of a game and averaged 5.7 yards per carry on carries 11-20 on 103 attempts that count in that range.

It is also interesting, that Jonathan Stewart, who split carries with Williams last season also averaged 4.6 yards per carry on his first 10 carries in a games and averaged 4.9 yards per carry in games from attempt 11-20.

It is also worth noting that Williams got 742 of his 1,515 yards on first down while Stewart got 334 of his 836 yards on first down.

While I am not a Panthers Fan, it seems that with the slowing down of Delhomme, the Panther s natural progression in the coming season is going to pound the football once again and let there massive offensive line wear opponents down.

So, all things considered equal.

Start pounding with Derrick, Finish them off with Earnest.

Sounds good to me.

Blind Melon - It would stand to reason, that is the precise route in which the team might be heading this coming season, but I find it interesting that a back that is considered a speed back as Williams is did not wear down in the second half of games seeing as he is not an overly big back, but the rotation the Panthers had working last season probably helped that factor more then anything.

The best back on first down last season is also in the NFC South in Michael Turner as he got 1,009 of his 1,699 yards on first down, here is to hoping the new run contain vectoring system that Jim Bates will be implementing works or that the personnel can adapt to it, as it could be a long road ahead for many of us fanatics.

Looking at that list I don't want Le'Ron McClain or anybody on his offensive line. 

It also looks like Herm Edwards getting the ball in Larry Johnson's hands 450 times a couple of years ago may have had an effect on his longevity.

Please clarify, was that the Back's 1-10 and 11-20 or the teams?  because if it was the back's then this strategy makes no sense.  If it was the team's then there might be something to it, but you also would have to factor in how backs get into a rhythm and how playcalling changes.

As always....

Looks good on paper..

But I've always viewed E. Graham as a full-time back. He seems to get better towards the end of a game, after he's figured out the defense a bit. However, as with many one-back systems, he does get warn down a bit by seasons end.

When the Bucs get to that 11-20 range they should be down by a couple TD's so it won't matter much.
