The guy was a rookie without the benefit of training camp experince and DD was tearing up some good competition. The guy always seemed to be running hard and over people with great vision between the tackles....

....Dominick has shown to be productive, a quick study, exhibits a great work ethic, a hard nose runner, keeps his legs pumping, great vision, quick feet, and perhaps he is not the fastest in the 100 yard dash but 4 rushes of 25 yards will still get the Texans in the end zone....
We are being for real. Olandis Gary had about the same stats in about the same number of games.

Kick returners arent 'burners,' that just have great vision. And did anybody read when I posted that DD didnt average 100 yards per game!!!!!!! He averaged 84 yards per start and 74 yards per game!!!!!! And when DD has 4 rushes and each get around 25 yards, PM me and I will post an apology for DD.
