Your last point is fine, but wouldnt it be better if we avg. 35-40.
The running game now and in the 00's is completely different, and the holes now and then are much different.
The holes this year are much more difficult to find if they're even there...and McGahee finishes off a lot of his runs by plowing a defender 4-5 yards.
