No offense to the expert, but every expert like the Denver coaches, the Texans line coach, etc. from the NFL that I have read has said that DD's cut-back ability is exactly what works best in the zone-blocking scheme. Remember--Shanahan was going to take DD within a few spots after us but we took him first.

I say if we dont start seeing major improvment in uor running game than next season we throw out the zone blocking !! Why did we change something when it was our strength last season ? D.D is a good back but i just dont see zone blocking working for him "so much for his 2,000 yards huh"
