Yep, pretty much. He did get hit, but if you watch the replay, you'll see that the ball was wiggling around before a hand was laid on him. It was actually pretty strange looking, it's like the ball just shot out of his hands for no reason.

Reggie used "the force" to make the ball shoot out.

I got a nice little chuckle when I saw Dayne run over a few Saints, then as he was going down, he crawled over a defender to get the first.

I was at the game so really couldn't see perfectly but from what I saw it was on our OL. We won in the trenches on both sides of the ball (overall during the whole game) and that's why we won, imo. But if you don't convert on 4th and 1...9 times out of 10 its on the OL even though Dayne was dancing
It doesn't matter what your line is doing if your RB comes to pretty much a dead stop after taking the handoff. That was absolutely pothetic. For that distance, you don't look for holes, you hit the line and you hit it hard. If Dayne had any thoughts of trying to bounce it outside, he needs to watch more tape, he doesn't bounce anywhere. His long run was nice, and an example of what he could do if he didn't think and just ran the damn ball.

Found this tidbit from questions to Dayne on Yahoo.

(how his performance) I did OK. I think I could have did better just by finishing off a couple runs. Like on the third- or fourth-and-one, instead of stopping I should have just hit it up in there, so I take most of the blame for it, for our running game.

Just glad he recognizes that sometimes you just have to hit it up in there.

No I see what your saying but it's kind of hard to run in the back of Flannigan and Weary expecting to push them forward when they are 2 yards BEHIND the line of scrimmage. If they had gotten a good push forward, Dayne just runs into the back of them... When the DT's are pushing them backwards...Dayne isn't going to do much.

I want to point out that I'm not really trying to defend Dayne here, but point out that our offensive line gets little to no push it seems on 4th and short.

No worries...understood and agreed that having your OL get worked on a 4th and short doesn't help.
