I think the real issue here is emotion. Those fumbles turned big, positive plays, which DT himself had a big role in making, into negative plays. So as fans we go from elation to getting punched in the gut.

Yes, those fumbles count against DT's performance. But I'm not sure they're enough to warrant his superb overall body of work thus far this season an average grade. If DT is average I wish we had a whole team of average players!
