dances way too much
I noticed this he got stuffed at the goalline the play before his TD run. He stopped his feet entirely and got clobbered. As a bigger RB, he should always have his feet moving forward toward the line of scrimmage his momentum should carry him into the endzone.
I think it should be a 50/50 split but ride the hot hand on a game by game basis depending on which RB is feeling it that day.
Mark Purdy said on Chronicle Live that he doesn't see Westbrook getting more than 15 carries a game. He will always be in on 3rd and long for blitz pick up, and obviously Dixon nails down all short yardage/goal line carries.
