if you calculate the passes not thrown to the RB he has a rating of just 75.1
And if you take out Barry Sanders' runs of over 20 yds, he has a 1 yd average.
That may not be the actual number, but you get the point. Sanders got stuffed more than anyone around, but his ability to break off long ones made his average high. Every QB benefits from "safe" passes--that is why they throw them.
