He runs with a nastiness that I think fans here would love. His physical style and every down ability makes him a good fit for what the Steelers say they want to do.
And thats where you all lose me. 'He runs with a nastiness that I think fans here would love.' Do you know what I think steeler fans would love? A Running Back who gets 5 yards a carry. Nobody would care if he runs elusive like a guy like McCoy or like a Power Back like Frank Gore. We want production. Don't say Lacey can't bring production but I'm sick of it that we search the next Bettis in every Back.
We don't need to!!!
