Agreed, he earned every damn yard he got that year, because there were zero point shit (0.) holes for him to run through in '07, and pretty much every year following. Whisenhunt knew a guy like FWP needed a well designed run play to spring him, and concentrated a lot of effort in that area. You could tell immediately that Arians was not able to design effective run plays, and as a result Willie got pounded until he broke his leg.

So......what happens when you insert someone similar to Willie into that offense?

Same result, except Mendy didn't seem to have the instincts or speed that FWP had. I honestly think that any OC with half a brain can come up with the offense that Arians did, and Haley could actually bring back some stellar running to this team, as soon as our O-linemen stop dropping like flies.
