Thanks for the stats Dale. Not that I'm lazy.
I'm still not convinced though. I find it hard to attribute the dramatic shift in W/L to simply changing from a back averaging 3.5 to one averaging 4.0. There must have been more going on with the team than that. And as you referred earlier Henry has had a couple VERY nice years previously. He is not a career 3.5 ypc back (waiting to be proven wrong with stats I am too lazy to look up.
Anyway, Its Buffalo's choice. I'm just not sure I see the value in their management of their RB situation. Still early though.
