    Most recent rule changes favor the passing game, so that's how the teams are built. chicks dig the long ball and all that. The down side is that most teams can't use their running game to kill clock at the end of a game.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Thatís what it takes for him. They canít give him three carries and expect fireworks every time. He has an appetite for destruction if you feed him. 127 at the half? Heís just getting started.

    He's got over 400 yards, 6 TDs, and is averaging over 8 yards a carry over the last two weeks. As we all know from his time here at UA, DH is a volume back. He needs 25-30 carries a game, and if you give it to him, he's going to give you 125-150 and at least a score or two. Given how incompetent Marriota can look at times, I'd feed Derrick the rock as much as possible.

    I think they just get tired of trying to tackle him; become a step slow, try to take different angles.. Keep feeding him, and he will wear down the D.

    Hard to be that kind of back in the NFL because a tailback can take several games to get 25 carries if their team isn't controlling the game on both sides of the ball. I think a lot of his strong play lately is due to the Titans electing to get behind their OL and backs instead of trying to sling it around with Mariota. It doesn't hurt that they've played several teams that their D can shutdown with ease.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!
