Well, I'm afraid that it just doesn't happen. Everyone in the NFL feasts on the short yardage TDs. To single out SA is nearsighted.

Here's what I did. I sampled the Top 10 TD rushing running backs of 2004. You can do more if you like, and in other years. I'm fairly confident the results won't change and frankly, this is your bias to prove.

Dominick Davis
Rudi Johnson
*Submitting in EJ who came in 11th, omitting Bettis who was a TD vulture

Here's what you get.

Only Rudi and EJ had 25% or less of their TDs come inside the 2 yard line. Here's the percentages:

22, 25, 42, 44, 46, 50, 50, 50, 53, 75. Which one was Shaun?

Excluding Barber who's yardage per TD average was majorly inflated for two +50yd scores (12.6 yards/TD) Only EJ eclipsed Shaun's 7.5 yards/TD average.

Which two RBs in the list were the only ones to score four times outside the ten? Holmes and?

Which RB would you tout is more of a premier RB? Tomlinson? With NINE of his TDs coming from the one? And only two outside the ten? Well he can't be! He might as well be "walking them in backwards".


in case you missed it ... p?t=135191

as I did,,,but I must say to read all 107 pages at once was exhilerating,,,this could be the best post of all time ;-D

Heh, conspiracy. Post by Seahawks fan. Then thread locked by a Seahwaks fan before a rebuttal is posted. Then called post of the year by another Seahawks fan. :D There are too many Seahawks fans in a position of power. I think they should have a 3 way battle to the death where the winner is the sole Seahawks mod. :-D

I'm the winner.

Deal with it.

Only 3 leagues this year. No sense in rooting for everyone in the NFL.
