For one, I don't think Andy Reid will be keeping a fullback on the roster in 2012 which will allow him to keep four running backs—Bryce Brown, Chris Polk, Dion Lewis and LeSean "Shady" McCoy.
Two of those guys were former high school standouts and the other two were Pitt Panthers with high expectations. McCoy led the league in rushing touchdowns in 2011 as Vick and the passing game faltered nearly every week. The running game—for once—was the only bright spot in a sea of darkness for the underwhelming "Dream Team."
Now the crew is back and better than ever with the hated Ronnie Brown out of town and two exciting young rookies in to take his place. So, how will the running game stack up statistically?
Here are projections for each Eagles running back.
