I don't know if they keep stats on this or not, but what I really want to know is how often EG rushed for 1st downs in short yardage situations. As I said in another thread, I don't care if he only rushes for 150 yards all season with a 2.5 YPC if he picks up a 125 1st downs on 3rd and 2.
How effective will he be in these situations is what's important to me. I don't want him for the 1st and 10 carries. I want him to do what Hambrick couldn't do and what Emmitt Couldn't do his last 2 or 3 years, and that's pick up the 1st down on 2nd and short and 3rd and short. Is there any way to find out how he did last year in these situations?
