Keep in mind that any time D-Lo gets stuffed behind the line, the crowd is gonna go ape-poo. We have to try to avoid playing into the hands of the Saints' home field advantage and we can ill afford wasted downs. Even if D-lo runs for 1 or 2 yards, thats better than -2. Hopefully Shula will see that running D-Lo between the tackles has to result in positive yardage. No wasted downs. I know we need to show that look from time to time, but on the road against a team that can go 80 yards in 3 plays and 60 seconds they need to pick their battles wisely.
We have a lot of options so the best strategy is to give the Saints so many diverse looks that they can't key in on any one player. Also, don't forget that Tolbert is a good receiver, so that adds a dimension too.
