DWill is a fasinating kinda guy. I can see the reasoning behind the adoration. Or, it could be the contract thingy.

Jamaal Charles has a career 6.1 ypc...on 500 attempts so it is pretty legit. Not 1000 but still...

Other backs hit 5 a pop last year...which doesn't diminish what Williams did as he is a great runner but he wasn't alone in that last year
