Here is the reason why!
Pat Hill, the coach at FSU (Fresno State) was on the radio today talking about getting the ball into a capable runner's hands and see what happens. Almost every play has the possibility of going for the big one. In this case the yards after the catch by AJ are more than impressive. That is why the short pass to AJ should be used as much as possible, because when he is past the line of scrimmage lord only knows what can happen with his power. In affect the short pass makes AJ another running back who can terrorize the defensive backs. David got a lot of his yardage at FSU by throwing short passes to the likes of Bernard Berrian who could turn it on after the reception. The Texans have been doing something similar, but AJ needs to catch the ball 1st, put it away, and then have some fun.
