Sproles is a tremendous talent. And I'm sure if the two RBs switched teams their numbers would also change. But that's not going to help him when it comes time for voting.
Touchdowns are decieving. Last weekend the Cy-Springs Panthers (HS Football) had something like this in a way. Our sophmore running back had 260 yards rushing. The other back had less than 10 yards but 3 touchdowns. You have to look at their abililty, mainly in tape.
