Norwood has the potential to be better than a guy like Steve Slaton who is flourishing with more touches. This would lead me to believe that the coaching staff thinks that Turner not only can handle more touches, but that he benefits from more touches because the defense is wearing down. Turner is not only a fast and strong guy, his lower body is like pure muscle, he's big. The guy is a brick. He's like MJD that's carrying an extra 50 pounds.
It's almost like Turner doesn't use his top gear unless he is in the open field. He seems to save a lot of energy on each carry. Really the type of guy that can handle 30 carries and not be a big deal.
Has the guy even been on the injury report this year? It's rare, but some players in the NFL can play through pain and avoid major injuries for long stretches of time. Turner might be one of those guys.
He's built exactly like Jamal Anderson to me, but your right his lower body has a huge base and he runs with alot of power, I actually think Turner is more compact at one inch shorter and about 6 lbs heavier but both were in that 5'10 240 range...It boggles my mind as to why Norwood isn't used more but I expect him to walk because he could have a Leon Washington role on a team who would use him alot more ie Cleveland.
