Brian Herrien: I'm more interested in gaining "Dawg Yards"

On describing his own running style…
“My running style, I kind of like to bruise, I kind of just want to hit the defense as much as I can so then as the game goes on, the defense is going to want to come back making the same tackles. They’ll kind of get to the side, hesitate a little bit and at that point, I can just run by them.”
On his favorite runs…
“My favorite runs usually aren’t the longest runs, they are the hardest ones, like the tough ones that shouldn’t have been a gain, or should’ve been a loss and kind of get back to the line of scrimmage or a gain a couple yards.”
On earning a run by breaking tackles or running through a hole in the offensive line…
“We call it Dawg Yards. If the offensive line opens a big hole and you run through it, that’s kind of like the offensive line’s part; but the Dawg Yards come from you when you get contact and you still break the tackle or you make somebody miss and after contact you get yards, that’s Dawg Yards. We want the runs like that instead of the open hole. We want to work for a lot of them.”
