I have no doubt, after Sunday's game, that LT is quicker than DD. Maybe not as tough, I don't know (ignoring the fumbles), but definitely quicker.
Someone else mentioned the 2000 yd. season and, even though I really like DD (like everyone else does), I've thought all along that it's a mistake for ANY RB to come out and say that. It's overconfident and it LOOKS conceited. I think he just doesn't realize that that kind of season takes some luck--along with 16 GREAT games, which requires perfect health all season for him and the OL.
