MD28 is an amazing RB. Why on earth we don't sell PA to him I will never understand. Shaw should be coached to jam that ball in his belly and pull it out. The safeties will bite all over it. This would leave receivers open, especially the TEs.
And finally, I can't believe we don't lean on MD28 more and grind teams.
I completely agree. Mike looked like a man amongst boys today. He made that touchdown run on the option look easy even though he made a few people miss.
When Marcus Lattimore was healthy, we would feed him the rock. I don't know if had any games with over 40 carries, but he was close.
In a few days, 21 carries will seem like Mike got his fair share. He ran well enough to day to have the chance to kill the clock against a defense that was tired of tackling him. I guess some things just make too much sense to actually happen.
