Kuhn looked stronger, Kuhn looked faster, and Kuhn had more drive.
Whether that would translate to the regular season? Who knows. But Kuhn was the better RB this preseason - there is no arguing that. If both Duce and Kuhn were rookies coming in competing for a spot, Duce would not be here. He's here because of his name only.
i believe the coaching staff saw it differently...based on seeing these guys every day..as compared to a handful of carries in pre season games....
I'll defer to cowher and his staff in that arguement...
