Dorsett thinks Tashard Choice is a baller
By Calvin Watkins
Tashard Choice didn't start Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts, but he did rush for 100 yards on 19 carries in the Cowboys overtime victory.
It was Choice's first 100-yard game as a professional and despite only three career starts, has proven when given the opportunities he can play.
Tony Dorsett, a Hall of Famer, knows something about running. The former Cowboys running back led the team in rushing 10 times, rushed for 12,036 yards with the Cowboys and still holds the franchise record for the longest rushing touchdown in history, 99-yards, set vs. Minnesota in 1983.
Dorsett is a big Choice fan and is not in favor of a three-running back attack featuring Marion Barber, Felix Jones and Choice.
"Choice has looked good," Dorsett said Tuesday, who is starting to promote NFL Experience, which is a festival held during the week of the Super Bowl. "He's a baller. I've always liked him. I’ve always said if I [was him and I] wasn’t starting I would be trying to get out of here. He can play in the NFL no question about it."
