    I think the point is consistency or lack thereof.

    The only view that I am fitting is that stats don't tell the entire story.

    You can try the whole 'You are what your record says you are' theory for a player, but it is no where near the same.

    In 14 games as a Cardinal he has 228 carries 1,121 yards (4.91 ypc) and 12 touchdowns. That looks like a pattern to me.

    This reminds me of a slugger that hits 35-40HRs and is 4th in the league in HRs, but strikes out 200 times a year.

    Last season in 14 games Dalvin Cook finished 8th in the league in rushing with 230 carries, 1,135 yards (4.93 ypc) and 13 TDS.

    Dalvin is a much better receiver, but let’s not act like Drake is junk...

    If you say so.

    Drake has definitely been feast or famine this year. 4th in rushing or no, just like Kyler.

    this is blatantly false. It was broken down on video in another thread here about the poor running and hole choices he was making. It was an awesome video by a third party someone posted. Apparently Kingsbury had a talk with him about running more decisively. It was mentioned during the game.

    Last season Drake was at 4.8 yards per carry and he's now at 4.6.

    Augers well, I would think.

    P.S. Should we subtract Derrick Henry's 94 yd scamper last week from his total?

    And someone who hits 35, 40 homers usually has over 100 RBI's and get paid handsomely for the production.

    Come on. The game situations were completely different, and that IS the point.

    Drake scored his run against a poor defense that already gave up on the game.

    Henry's run, while great was completely different. The game was close. He broke tackles, and he ran away from everyone. Drake ran his run untouched and there wasn't a defender within yards of him the entire play.

    Besides, Henry has been the best back in the league for quite a bit now, and it hasn't been close.

    They said in NFL network the other say that Henry isn’t getting near the hype he should. That we are witnessing Bo Jackson level of play with a guy his size and strength with that kind of speed who can pummel your Butt to the ground and run away from CBs. He is a true stud and should be the talk of the league imo.

    Bottom line: No asterisk for Henry or Drake.

    Bottom line: Stats can lie, or at least not tell the entire story.

    Yep. It boggles my mind that Henry had to wait until the deadline to get paid. He should have gotten McCaffery money without much of a fight.
