    If Greg Hill had gotten hurt, I don't think the '98 and '99 seasons would have played out much differently with J.R. at the helm.

    If A.P. had gotten hurt in 2001, I think we could have made a deep run even with Hakeem Ford and Jermaine Austin (who redshirted).

    So, yes, this is a good illustration of how depth helps. I liked Chaz Thornton a lot, but if I need a RB to get 5-7 meaningful carries a game, I'd take Fields every time.

    That's why I'm interested to see whether Montgomery, Walker, Garrett, Laroche, Wright, or Godfrey (all scholarship RBs) can make a similar impact off the bench in meaningful situations.

    I'm as big a fan of rotating skill players as Mark Richt and Paul Johnson.

    You are acting like I said we just need some ****ty RB to take up a handful of carries a game. Obviously I want that 3rd RB to be as good as possible. But just like with Fields in 2015 (including the bowl game) very few to zero games will be decided based on what our #3 RB who is getting 6 carries a game does. It will be based on what Fields and Ramsby do.

    Obviously they can't carry it every time but they need to be and I expect will be on the field the majority of the time.
