i admit to being biased, but i caught the replay of this game, and Leonard looks clearly quicker/faster than the other two backs being talked about by the so-called "experts," in addition to being a lot larger and more powerful. he really hits the gas pedal when he sees daylight. however, you don't see him dancing around running left and right for a half-hour before being dragged down for a loss ... so, if doing that is the measure of a "real" running back, then he'll never qualify. he did have another Leonard Leap, though. this time, it was behind the line of scrimmage after he'd already broken a tackle. he makes it look so effortless!
