"So, thus far this season, the top five teams running the ball and the top five teams stopping the run are a combined 25-30. Not what I expected. I ran it by a few personnel people, and they weren't quite as surprised, at least not that yards per carry didn't translate so directly to success."


"I had also begun testing my theory that running ball the most, in sheer number of carries, not so much average per carry, mattered."
