With the receivers struggling to get any separation and no SB/EE, I was a little surprised that the Giants didnít call any designed runs for DJ v the Pats. I wouldnít necessarily say that DJ has elite quickness/burst, but he has excellent long speed. You could see it on his first TD run v Tampa (18.5mph) and he showed it many times in college (like when he ran for 150 yards v UNC).
I think 3 or 4 well-thought out and lowered risk running calls per game (utilizing the sidelines to avoid hits/instructing him to slide and not take on tacklers) for DJ might have a big impact ó not just in getting a few crucial first downs but in keeping the defense honest.
I see DJís speed as a critical part of his skillset, something that might separate him from a Rosen or Haskins. DJ doesnít seem to have freakish arm talent or the ability to move and throw from multiple angles like the great pocket passers ... so in order for him to max out his effectiveness, I think running needs to bigger part of his game than it was the last 2 games (5 rushes for 20).
