Wells had a great game yesterday under the circumstances, but I still view him as the 3rd stringer, altough he is giving me pause to wonder if he might slip ahead of Hollings. You can't teach speed, and Hollings has that in spades. Anyone remember that run of his in the preseason? Think Wells can do that? Wells reminds me a little of Gary Brown.
As to DD, is it just me, or does anyone else notice the irony of winnning 2 games in a row, with DD on the bench? Look at the way the offense has opened up in these games. Look how Billy Miller has been brought back from the witness protection program. Look how Carr is exploiting the seam against the cover two all the sudden. It seems to me that DD was the equilvent of Linus's security blanket. Since he has been out, Carr has been forced to survey the field, and not rely so quickly on the checkdown to the RB. It wouldn't bother me at all if DD was out another week or two. I hope this will also be a lesson for when DD gets back.
