Also - Barlow had a long run called back on a penalty. If the 9ers keep passing well, Barlow will come around and be a decent back.

I agree. I never understood people taking away a RBs longest run, because those people will never go through and throw out any place where the RB got hit in the backfield and never had a chance of gaining yards. If you're going to take out outliers on one end, you should do both.

I agree also - it doesn't make any more sense than saying "if you take away those short runs, he's really a great runner:.
