Wade Phillips discusses how Texans’ running back Dameon Pierce can make a big difference to the success of their offense this season. Pierce has been the talk of the Texans’ training camp, and performed well in their first preseason game.
Houston ranked last in rushing last season, and Pierce’s performance has to be encouraging for the Texans. Phillips reminisces on how Earl Campbell took his team from the bottom of the rushing rankings to the top in just one season, and calls Pierce an outstanding running back.
“When we first got Earl Campbell, we were towards the last in the running game and then we led the league the next year,” Phillips said.
