• Atlanta Falcons: Turner, Rodgers and Snelling form RB committee

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Nov 28, 2012
    Time for a tour of some odds and ends from around the division: Michael Cunningham writes about how the Falcons are using a committee approach at running back with Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling splitting time with Michael Turner. “For one thing, it keeps the defense guessing,” Snelling said. Jason Snelling had three catches for 33 yards, Rodgers had a 32-yard catch and a 20-yard run among his 79 total yards and Turner powered in for a three-yard touchdown for one highlight in a 13-carry, 17-yard day. Jacquizz Rodgers played 31 offensive snaps against the Buccaneers compared to Turner’s 23. The rivalry game between the Saints and Falcons won’t be played until Thursday night, but some other games already have started. The NFL’s era of feeding the ball to one big featured back have faded in favor of spreading the ball around to multiple backs with different styles.
