The dash is to seperate a 2 quarter rest
Not even I said that Hollings was a goaline back. If you take away his goaline carries and the 3 carries after an hour and a half on the sideline his 54 yards on 11 carries has a 4.9 ypc average. And please dont say "DD would have gotten it in from the 5 yards out" because I will have to remind you about the game against the Pats when we had the ball at the one and Davis couldnt punch it in from 1 yard out. And then you are going to say that the Pats had the best Defensive line in the league last year, the Cowboys arent a pushover on their Defensive line. And most importantly they are two different backs. And if you count the 3 carries after his one and a half hour on the sideline, the yards per carry goes to 4.1. And if you exclude the one from the 5 yard line again, the average is 4.4 ypc...
The coaches have to know that Hollings isnt going to be a back that can punch it in from within the 10 yard line when the defense can stack the line, he is a speed back that works well in space. 5 yard per carry average in the when he wasnt trying to run between the tackles to punch it in and didnt have to sit on the bench for 90 minutes??? Thats pretty good against a good Cowboy defense...
And dont forget the 30 yard screen play, he fumbled but the play was nice...
