How many times do you see a back run right up into the backside of his blockers?
Everytime they hand it to Hollings between the tackles.

Hmmm... The guy that started this thread was asking if DD is the "quickest back in the league" and the answer to that is no. If you don't want to hear "who" is the quickest that is fine.

DD is one heck of a RB and plays the game in the fearless manner it deserves - he's not going to get beat out of being the starter here for a LONG time. I just get sick over people getting down on him. So NO - he isn't the quickest or the best - but he is the quickest and best in this division and that's good enough for me.

but to answer your question.......a lot of people may not agree, but this is my opinion. i think nody hits the hole faster than thomas jones for the bears or charlie garner for the bucs. if you watched garner run for the raiders he is/was one of the quickest to play for a while....(past 3-4 years)
Yeah, Garner is another really quick back that's underrated IMO.

Actually, he had 4 fumbles, but only lost 3. In 14 games, I don't think that is too terribly bad, although definitely something he could work on.

As for the yardage, I think his skills are that he could rush for as many yards as Tomlinson were he to get as many carries, but that ain't happening. I think he will be much closer to getting the same combined yardage as Tomlinson.
