Plus, many of his runs came from broken arm tackles that could have dropped him for a loss or short gain. I think it was more Indy's brutal run defense than anything Ryan did. Defenses that can tackle should have no problem shutting this guy down.
He may be only worth goal line carries. Not to mention K.Williams looked good and Shannahan is notorious for screwing RBs over.
Look to trade this big boy if you can.
Agree w/ pretty much everything you said, except for nothing imprssive - I read somewhere that 85 of his 100 yards came after 1st contact - Indy's bad D or not, that's an amazing stat.
Not very fast - check, not very elusive - check, takes an absolute pounding - check, trade him if you can - check.
Bears this week isn't very scary, Detroit the following week is juicy, then comes BYE, Philly after - again, not very scary...
After that - Portis could figure into the equation, and the schudle gets a bit more daunting - TEN, MIN, NYG, TB (juicy), DAL, JAX (juicy)
I'm throwing out feelers now however, I will actively be trying to move him after either the Bears game (depending on performace) and definately after Detroit.
