I just wanted to point out that there is more than one way to skin a cat (no pun intended).. and that even though DD has been struggling rushing.. he has been superb when it comes to catching balls out of the backfield.
DD currently has 26 receptions for 250 yards.. at a 9.6 yards per reception average... over the course of 6 games
LT has 23 receptions for 209 yards at a 9.1 yard per reception average... over the course of 8 games
So, DD is doing a better job of receiving than LT
.. especially when you consider that, while he played in 6 games.. he probably has only played the majority of the time in 3 or 4 of them. Obviously he isnt rushing as well as LT, but my point is that even though he isnt rushing as well, he has still been a big part of our offense.. and has been making plays for us.
BTW.. just to put it in perspective. I used LT as an example because he is an RB known for rushing and catching balls out of the backfield. However, the Vikings are the kings of dumping it off to their RB, and lead the league in that stat.
Mewelde Moore in 6 games has 27 receptions for 238 yards, at an 8.8 average.
and Onterrio Smith in 3 games has 15 receptions for 223 yards, a 14.9 average.
Oh.. and as long as ive started a thread on this.
Tony Hollings. 2 receptions for 30 yards, 15.0 average. 9 carries for 32 yards, 3.6 average (better than davis or wells).
WHEN ARE WE GOING TO SEE MORE OF HOLLINGS!!!!!
