Not gonna lie... I have a fetish for big backs. There's somethin about havin a big ol' back and just sledge-hammerin an opponent with him until you break their will. There's somethin about the primal, carnal essence of it... just... just that runnin right through a guy. You know? Just tramplin him. Just crumplin a dude up and flickin him like a booger. Just... you know... just... just a makin his momma cry cuz she's not sure if you just murdered her baby kinda whoopin. Thats this dude. He's big, and he's athletic, and he's angry.
He's a great back, man. Just look at the little things. Don't pay attention to the long runs. Look at how quick his feet are. How suddenly he changes direction. He doesn't need space to create a whiff. Watch his patience in letting his blocks set up. Watch his vision and his burst when the hole develops. Watch his speed and agility on the stretch plays. His acceleration when he sees a lane. Watch him squirt through tight spaces. Dude is a beast. And we didn't even get to his power yet.
He runs with power and anger, but he doesn't Shonn Greene it. He doesn't seek out collisions. He uses his strength and balance to assert his will as a last resort, but he doesn't rely on it. He uses it. And he is certainly willful. He takes over games. And he gets stronger and stronger as games go on. He's got the quickness and speed to make you miss, and the power and agility to machete through arms like they were dry twigs, and the strength and will to move through you anyway once you've got him corralled.
Hyde, if you know whats good for ya.
