He actually fights for yards now...instead of falling over when a puny little cb touches him. Odd.
I noticed that too though I think the 2 hurdles, vs putting his shoulder down and driving thru the DB's, still says he prefers to avoid contact.Ironically, i think hurdling puts him more at risk than using his size and strength to punish defenders.
