The Dallas Cowboys owner was quoted back in '88 as saying with regards to Ben Johnson, paraphrasing from memory, "we'd give him a shot at running back. Everyone in the league is on steroids, anyway."

Dwain has the size and the speed, but boy would injuries be a problem...

Yeah, but track speed and football speed are two different things ... And I don't see Dwayne in the mold of say Hershel Walker or Bo Jackson ... Personally I don't see the heart of a football player in Chambers ... Running backs take a lot of punishment (was one once) ... You either carry the ball and are getting hit or you are not carrying the ball and blocking for someone else and having to hit someone ... Your legs take a lot of punishment and Chambers legs have trouble just holding up under plain and simple running ... Sorry but I don't see it ...
