How about the fact that when we've put other guys behind that same line, they never do as well as Dayne does.
1. It does happen quite often, and should have happened once or twice today, however Dayne is just too slow to create enough seperation from the defenders to get into the open field. I'm not saying he has to break a 80 yard run, as one of these other posters was saying. I am just saying some of these 5-10 yard carries he had could have easily gone for 20-30.
2. What other guys? Ahman Green with a bone on bone knee problem. Echemandu? Samkon Gado? ooOOooooOOOoOO. Dayne is the best runner on our roster at this point, but that isn't saying very much.
Again, I think he can play backup well for us, but he should not be considered a starter. (Speaking about 2008)
