It is my belief that AD's career will be shortened by his aggressive/assaultive running style. I do believe that defenders are afraid to be hit by AD and thus they tend to go for his legs/knees, epecially the smaller safties and CB's. This was the way he got injured in the Green Bay game and this will be why his career is cut short.

I don't worry about him getting hurt. If it happens it happens. You know the risk before you draft a guy like that. Love what he has done so far. ;-D

That first clip of the helmet on helmet hit is the worst. He has to realize his own value on a play like that. No point risking injury to yourself when the DB would gladly risk himself for a chance of putting AP out with a clean hit.. If it was a game winning goal line play it's understandable but between the 20's he needs to chill out a little bit. Reminds me of super beast mode 2005 Larry Johnson.

The way he runs is definitely going to hurt him in the long run, but he shouldn't be looking down the road, he should be trying to win now and that is what he is doing.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

enjoy it, unless you are in the worrying business. It's hard to take the stripes off a tiger.
