well, I don't remember him having any fumbles there, that's all that matters at this point

I just don't want him at runningback unless there's an emergency

We could have Gale Sayers back there returning punts and kickoffs and we still wouldn't be successful on returns. Our return units desperately need to learn how to form a decent wedge.

It's better than having him at tailback. It's definately better than risking injury to Holmes.

Hey...

Dookie didn't do too bad on returns. No fumbles. Let's hope we can put together some blocking.

isn't it amazing that we can't block on either offense OR ST's?

Sounds like a pattern to me.

He had 25 yards on 16 attempts vs JAX last year in the playoffs. He is a 250lb guy that mentally thinks he is a 210lb running back and runs that way.

I like him as a kickoff returner and situational RB, but not as a main ballcarrier. Would rather have Gary Russell at RB as he runs with more forward lean and finishes runs falling forward, where Dookie stands up.

Our returners have been poor this year, but at least he hangs on to the ball--it's probably not too big a deal.

Every time I see Santo back there waiting for the ball, I cringe, as we can't afford to lose him to injury, especially now with the RB situation. Let's put Dookie to good use - let him return both the punts and KO's.
