If not by default, we still wouldn't see Hilliard get significant PT. Every time he plays he looks real good. Looks like he secures the ball well and always keeps his feet moving. So my question is why have the coaches been reluctant to use him more? As much as I love Ricky, it really looks like the extended load is taking a toll on him. He runs uninspired at times and has had ball security issues. Age looks to be catching up to him. So why haven't they split carries with Ricky? Lex even looked to have good hands today. Better so than Ricky's hands. Lex got a couple carries against CAR and made the most of them provided a few crucial 1st downs. I really question the coaches on this one. Ricky clearly can't carry the load by himself anymore. Not many teams have exclusive backs anymore. So why did we try it with a 32 RB?
