I love watching Jim Kiick highlights. His running style was so intense. He was good at everything, especially blocking. I think its telling that Csonka's YPC started to go down as Kiick was being rotated out for Mercury Morris. Those 1971 Dolphins were pretty remarkable...Csonka averaged 5.4 YPC for over 1000 yards with a long run of only 28 yards, Kiick himself averaged 4.6 YPC, and between the two of them they only fumbled once in 410 touches. They did A Football Life episode with Csonka, Kiick & Morris, and Kiick didn't look the best but he still had his sense of humor. I wonder if he and Pete Banaszak were the first 'goal line specialist' RBs?
