From wgr550.com:

That belief I had then and now has nothing to do what so ever with Spiller’s ability. I said then that I totally disagree with Gailey and I feel Spiller absolutely can carry the ball 25 times and play at a high level. Spiller also agreed with me, but said then there was nothing he could do about it.

On Monday Gailey changed his opinion which helps me change mine, “Can he, yes he can. Will we ask him to, probably not. I’d like to not just go out there and run him 25 times a game, but if that’s what it takes to win the game, that’s what we’ll do, but you’d rather not. Choice did a great job, he did do a good job yesterday, but when you get Fred back, you feel a lot more confident splitting those carries and keeping both of them fresh.”
