Without the feet, people cannot move from place to place. The same goes for football teams.
The running backs, or the feet of the group, get the chains moving on the ground.
Another solid unit for the Bills, the running backs should be able to take off this year.
With the addition of Dominic Rhodes to pick up some slack after Marshawn Lynch's three-game suspension, Buffalo now has one of the best running back trios in pro football.
In 2008, even with an overrated offensive line, the Bills running backs were fairly successful. This year, Lynch has told the public that he added more weight to his frame but has not lost a step as far as speed is concerned.
The Beast just got bigger. And hopefully better, if that's possible.
Freddy "Action" Jackson, who to many plays just as well as Lynch, was rewarded with a contract extension.
Already quick and hard to tackle, Jackson's play should only get better as he tries to show the front office they made the right decision in re-signing him.
Finally, the Bills made a sound choice in signing former Colt Dominic Rhodes. Last year, while sharing starting duties with Joseph Addai, he collected a total of nine touchdowns, three through the air and six rushing.
Add his experience, and he brings not only points, but also leadership to the table.
If Lynch can stay out of trouble the rest of the season, this unit could be one of the most productive for the team. If he can't, it shouldn't suffer too much.
Jackson and Rhodes have enough talent to lead this team to the end zone.
Since the addition of T.O., teams can no longer stack eight men in the box against the backs, allowing for more holes to be opened up.
If the offensive line can gel, this unit will be unstoppable.
