Thats where Troy comes in, for the last 8 years we've had that football machine in our backfield "making plays', But he makes everyone else around him look better. Because hes one of the greatest football players I have ever seen. Hes a lynchpin, you remove that pin and everything falls apart. Thats where the FO and coaches fail, there is NO ONE else in that backfield that can step up and play half as good as Troy. He is TOO important and i think that is the failure.
