... class="MsoNormal" >From starting the season without a fullback, to playing most of the season without a healthy Brian Westbrook, throw in an almost complete failure to even utilizethe run, and it made for a tough season.

When Westbrook is healthy, he is arguably the most dynamic player in the NFL.  In 2008, Westbrook had his most disappointing season since his rookie campaign in 2003. 

He spent most of this past season battling injuries, and unlike previous years, he wasn’t able to remain effective. 

After totaling 195 yards from scrimmage and five touchdowns in the first two games, Westbrook only managed to play in two of the next four games, racking up just 45 yards on 17 carries when he did play.

After the bye week, things looked to be improving after a 22-carry, 167-yard, two touchdown performance against Atlanta.
