Does Dungy hate Addai?

Postby Inukchuk » Thu Dec 14, 2006 6:47 pm

Just saw this on Yahoo

"We can understand how he [Addai] didn't get many carries in a blowout when the Colts fell behind early. What we can't understand is how Dominic Rhodes got nearly half the carries (and a rushing TD) even though Addai has shown himself to be the better option the last month. Unless you can explain the Colts' thinking here, don't count on Addai getting the bulk of the carries the next few weeks."

I have to agree. Addai has shown great potential, but almost always gets out carried by Rhodes. I'm sure I'll get a bunch of the "keep him fresh for the playoffs" excuses, but Rhodes seems to be the inferior back by quite a margin. Why are the Colts ignoring Addai???

I'm sure theres lots of minor things we don't see, maybe work ethic in practice, but you never know, I haven't seen many Colts games but I understand he's doing well in pass blocking so I can't understand any other logical reasoning.

They dont want to overuse the rookie RB, and from what I saw of the Colts game last week, Addai wasn't faring any better than Rhodes.

Addai isn't as great as everyone thinks he is. He's probably be out of the league in less than 3 years.

Yup and got a twisted ankle during the game too which made him miss most of the 2nd half I believe...

Ha. Ha. Ha.

Seems like he's a little better than Rhodes is... Rhodes average is looking pretty damn good 3.4 yards a pop...

Addai, on the other hand averages a solid 4.8 behind the same offensive line.

I'm sure the line blocks better for Addai than Rhodes.
