Interesting article in the Indy Star about RB Dominic Rhodes. It casts a shadow over Dom's ability to replace Edgerrin James.
He admitted allowing a lack of playing time on offense -- just 40 carries, including five or fewer in 11 of 13 appearances -- to affect his attitude and performance. Rhodes averaged 3.0 yards per rush and 20.9 yards on 41 kickoff returns, each career lows.
"It was a combination of things; frustration, things like that,'' he said. "It was a year I really don't like to (dwell) on a lot. I didn't have as much fun as I usually have with football.
"Just not playing at running back, I let that bother me. I wasn't the same guy. To be totally honest, I was cheating myself, cheating my teammates, just cheating a lot of people by not being as much of a team player as I should have been.''
Yet the Colts decided to reinvest in him.
We'll see if Dom has what it takes to start and succeed, but I'm not optimistic.
