DD ran for 1031 last year while starting 10 of the games. Not sure where the Lions RB is, and as far as the Woody/Wade debate goes it's not accurate since they both play different positions. Before you say "They're both OLinemen" you might want to notice the difference in size of the two. Each are better suited for the positions they play. We have Zach Weigert and Chester Pitts at guard. Wade is a talented young tackle, and he just makes our running game better while giving us better pass protection. Weigert has played very well for the Texans, and was a large part of DD's success last season. Pitts moved back inside from LT to LG(his more natural position), and has played very well thus far through the preseason and regular season. So you'd be better off making your argument concerning those two.
