Default Rate this backfield?

1. LT
2. Michael Turner
3. Darren Sproles

At one point , we had a pretty insane backfield.

How do you think it stacks up all time?

I think that is a solid backfield to be envied, we didn't use Turner the Burner (ex NIU Huskie!!) enough or in the correct way in my opinion, would like to hear of any other 3 headed monsters that good though. That backfield was Thunder (Turner), Lightning (L.T.) and Rain (Sproles)!

With or without Max Starks holding down the left side?

A HOF starting RB/FB combo. The backups include one eventual All-Pro and an eventual Pro-Bowler. One thing's for sure this group scored more TDs than any other.

Below the OSU backfield of Barry Sanders and Thurman Thomas, that's for sure.

How far below ? I can't say for sure, without thoroughly analyzing my archives of historical data (some of which is still in microfiche format btw).

Like someone else said above though, Turner was really just a backup for us, so you can't really place too much value on him...

PS - Marcus Allen/Bo Jackson wasn't all that bad of a tandem either.
