''You hate to say which medicine you want to take (run or pass) but I don't want to see him running the football. He makes a lot of big plays running the football.''

''You have to contain him,'' Chavis said. ''They've got so many ways they get him involved.

He's one of the guys you've got to stop if you're going to have success against their offense.''
