Hamer and Nails?
Thunder & lightening?

I'm sensing a trend here. How about "Mac and Cheese" for Hillis and Harrison?

Be great to mix in Harrison for 10 carries / game and run Hillis 20.

Peter King's Hillis comparison: Norm Bulaich, the old Baltimore Colt bruiser from the '70s.

As long as we're in the wayback machine, how about Don Nottingham, the Human Bowling Ball out of Kent State?

No, I agree with you. I think he'll probably even out at about 4.0 rather than 3.5, but 4.8 is likely an anomoly. Especially if his number of carries per game remains in the 20's. Dude'll wear down, teams will adjust, Daboll will suck, etc.

If we're looking for a catchy name for Hillis/Hardesty combo try this on for size:

Peaches and Herb

Hardesty is Peaches because he's got the sweet moves for the first 3 quarters.
Hillis is Herb because he comes in and knocks them on their asses, just like good Canadian herb does (Err, or so I've been told).


Edit: Scratch that. Turns out that Peaches and Herb is already taken. They were some kind of rock-n-roll outfit back in the 70s.
