Turner Developing Carry Envy?

Quick discussion post for y'all tonight. Read an interesting article in the Times Union today.

Smith's new plan to spread out the carries will be tested in this week's important game against New Orleans with first place in the NFC South on the line.

Turner said Wednesday he'd like a heavy load of carries.

Smith said the workload will be determined by the "feel of the game."

Personally I think this is much ado about nothing. Turner's not a selfish player, and he will do what is best for the team.

But - for argument's sake - let's assume Turner isn't comfortable with anything less than the majority of the carries. At this point, that is realistic. He's averaging 4.4 yards/carry and, let's be honest, his recent hot streak has been fanfreakingtastic. 

As time goes on though, a RB-by-committee or thunder-and-lightening situation might just develop, especially if we draft his replacement next spring. If that happens, then Turner doesn't really have a choice, to be honest. He's under contract for another two years; at 29, it's hard to imagine him seeking greener pastures.
