24 divided by 3 equals 8

So an average of 8 runs a game over 3 games for PT.

That can be broken down to what....2 carries a quarter for PT?

We expect results from that?

Very true. And it goes back to my point that the problem isn't the RB.

The problem is an ineffective O-line and to a slighter lesser extent playcalling.

Punishment Time - hahahahahaha.

I told my wife last night, every time you give the ball to Pierre, good things
happen.

Two of my large speakers in my DJ system, I've marked them,
and named them a couple years ago, so I can keep up with maintenance. "PT" has a red tag, cranks up loud, and always works. "Reggie" has a yellow tag and
is always in the shop.

Last night's game is the perfect example of stats not telling the whole story. PT was the spark that got the engine rolling last night. Colston was awesome but PT wins the "MVP Not Named Drew" award this week.
