Lamar Miller has a pretty decent chance to break 1000 yards this season, but that 1000 yard mark is extremely average in my mind. Yes his yards per carry are high, but his touches are low. Can we really go into next season with Miller as the bellcow? He's had 2 seasons to be "the guy" and this coaching staff refuses to unleash the beast in him, is this a sign of not being able to handle it, or just bad coaching?
Do we stay the course with Miller and let Williams develop underneath him?
Do we draft a young RB?
Do we go Free Agency?

I like Chris Polk on the list.... I think he was pretty decent when he played for the Washington Huskies, just sat behind Shady McCoy and didnt get that big of a role. I dont watch much Eagles Football- is he worth a look?
Adrian Peterson should be an option on this list when he inevitably gets released. I would say priority number 1 would be to bring him in... If you notice, Vereen and Ridley are both on this list, so New England will be in the market.... just keep AP away from NE would be a smart move even if it requires a PR move.... Think about the Corey Dillon signing back in the day which helped them get to Super Bowls....... I could imagine Brady/Peterson would be unstoppable.
I'd consider Ingram just for short distance situations.... Not sure if he would accept a salary on a committee type role.
