Isaiah Pead is the truth, the silent truth. While you don't hear many people on the national level raise the bar when his name and/or highlights are mentioned he is legit. His career numbers are impressive but in the what have you done for me lately category he's just as worthy. In four games this year Pead is averaging 7.9 yards a carry or 80% of first down yardage with one run. He is decisive, has great feet and like a porsche can shift on the fly. The benefits of a great running game include much better play action results, a rested defense and keeping the clock running to name a few. With Isaiah you get that and more.
One thing I know is the NFL scouts know who he is and, what he can do. With the success other running backs from the Big East like Ray Rice and LeSean McCoy, his numbers are worthy of Sundays. Pead is also averaging 106 yards a game with 5 touchdowns so his yards per carry stats are not based on 2 or 3 carries a game as some stats reflect for others.
If you enjoy watching a pure running back go to a UC game and watch Isaiah Pead live and and up close. He won't disappoint you and if they keep feeding him the ball, he won't disappoint UC football either. Feed Pead; until he belches, burps or graduates. That last interruption will come soon enough. But until then I think Isaiah Pead is hungry....
That's the way I see it, sitting in The Box Seat
