Warrick Dunn and Fred Taylor were great runners between the 20s. The were fast and gained yards in the open field, but really struggled in the red zone and gaining short yardage. Aka Hillman style.
Our run game needed something last night, so we went with Hillman in the 2nd half to get a spark. Which he did in 3 rushes for 25 yards. Then at the goal line we should have subbed our best goal line back in - Knowshon. I suspect they didn't to save clock, then Manning checked to the run. Hillman gets stuffed and fumbles.
Well we were doing the warp speed hurry up, so no time to change RBs, but probably shoulda thrown it. Oh well, this is monday morning quarterbacking at its finest.
