While I don't have the stats on those games, my guess is that a few of those runs were of the 50+ yards type. What is impressive about Green's performance this week is his consistency, and his ability to get extra yards after initial contact. Not sure if he has the breakaway speed of Lumsden, Walker, or Cobb, but he seems pretty good at getting close to first down yardage when called on. Reminds me more of Cobourne.
Wow - so many RB names who seemed to be the answer at one time. Cobourne, Walker, Cobb, Lumsden.
Lest we forget guys like Josh Ranek, Cory Holmes, Terry Caulley, Mossis Madu, and even the ill-fated Kenton Keith. A few of them had a good run with the team, but generally not more than a couple of years. Gable has lasted longer than most, although he has played the equivalent of three full seasons in his five years here.
Thirteen years later and we still have yet to really replace Troy Davis.
No, it must have been the booze 'Dork, but Cobb started the season at running back and played every game until that breakout game in Vancouver. On another note, remember when a certain "fan" was clamouring for the concession stands to sell corn on the cob during the DeAndra Cobb frenzy.
