What games have you been watching? The OL's performance this year has been marginal on one of their better days. DD has undeniably been running much stronger (and more like his style last year) the last few games.

However, any back in the NFL that is only 5'9" and how many pounds can not be durable (except Barry Sanders) because he cant break the tackles. Once he is hit he goes down, and he doesnt have the swift feet like Sanders. He may be getting some yards, but they need a back that can get the extra yards and give other teams a scare.
I am not going to go to the work again to show how wrong this size thing is--DD is not an undersized back. Try going through the list of NFL top rushers this year and seeing how many are bigger than DD.

Size (at least once the RB is over 200 lbs) is not a good indicator of an NFL RB's ability or durability.
