He could have a very solid year. He did finish real strong last season. He could stay healthy and be a stud this season. But so could Fred Taylor.
Even with a "could" hypothetical there, using the word "stud" just seemed funny to me.
If we start describing Gore as a "stud", then I need to find a new word for SA, LT & LJ. The word "stud" is getting about as devalued as "supermodel" these days.
Hey, hyperbole is the nectar of preseason! What I meant was a stud #2 RB. Not an elite level back. If his last five games were an indicator of future production there will be few #2 RBs that will exceed his numbers.
As for a handcuff, Fireball Express, I would sooner try Robinson than Hicks. He is up and coming and may have already taken over the back-up role with his strong running during the exhibition season.
