Klinks choice not ADs. Running behind a FB allows him more time to see the holes and explode through them. Unless you have interviewed AD and specifically heard that from him you can not claim that "obviously" he prefers either. However, When we had a real FB he broke records. Tahi = decreased yards per carry. Maybe your stats prove my point more than yours? Not sure where you found that detailed stat but I bet if you run the numbers with FB Tahi and with FB Richardson you would see the my point.

did you see that pro football weekly didnt name Adrian to the all NFL taem this year?
Bandwagoners! Let's see. Last year they focused on his fumbles, AD Fixed that problem. I hope they scrutinize him more this offseason. He only uses it as fuel to prove that he is the best.

And it's time for "The Best" to go to a team that will get him a Super Bowl win. Just like Lebron James the trader did.

No, AD has said in interviews he prefers a one-back set. Not sure how i could find a link for you, though. He says he sees the holes better without a fullback.

Maybe Claude Rains could play fullback.

unfortunately I don't get to see local MSP interviews. Just the games and read what is written. AD played in a 2 back set at OU and did just fine. Hopefully the new coordinator will be able to use him more effectively.

I think it was Darren Nelson. Isn't Bennett still sucking up a roster spot in San Diego?

I think he was a Raider last year. They will take anyone.
