Again just because Ball is the "best" we have now doesn't mean he is the best we could have done.
There isn't a poster here that does not want a better running back but we are dealing in realities.
But this is shifting the argument from Ball's value as a blocker. He plays on certain downs because he protects our main asset, Peyton Manning.
If Peyton goes down it won't matter who the running back is.
