On these stretch plays I just see him kind of gliding trying to find a lane, but he's not really putting his foot in the ground and getting upfield like I've seen him do. I won't question his "want to" because I have no doubt he has plent of heart. I just think he needs to turn on some film of him running the ball his rookie year and see how decisive he was once he decided to hit the hole.
I agree. Its like a lot of self preservation going on.He's been hesitant to just stick his foot in the ground and come downhill. Like you said, in the playoffs we saw that sense of urgency,but it was generally lacking last yr during the season.
