Default Some fumbles numbers

I haven't been buying into the notion that Knowshon's fumbles are going to be an issue. But because I'm totally cool and had spare time, I crunched some numbers just to see how often he's fumbling. The number was a little higher than I was hoping for, but the results were lols, so I'll share:

The results are fumbles per touch (rushes and catches) expressed as a percentage (for runningbacks): (I did this waiting for the Monday nighter tonight, so Michael Turner's number could change)
McFadden 7.41
Slaton 5.04
Beanie 4.92
M. Turner 3.31
W. Parker 3.08
Hightower 2.94
Buckhalter 2.74
Knokno 2.5
Mendenhall 2.33
Stewart 2.33
Forte 2.11
Bradshaw 2.08

I probably could have left McFadden out, because he only has 47 carries, but it made me laugh so I left him in Also, without the suicide pass and subsequent beheading by Ed Reed, Knowshon's number falls to 1.68. For those homers like me who are still debating whether he made a football move.

Anyways, just thought I'd share, because math is cool, and the Raiders are laughable.

The jury is still out, he seems to drop the ball a bit much and seems injury prone. The sort of stuff you'd expect following a hold out. I will say this, does he look like a franchise back which you'd expect with the 12th pick, no.

If he was a fourth rounder I'd be happy but going as high as he did he's overall been pretty disapointing so far but the onus is him to prove me wrong.

These numbers make no sense. Sure you don't mean fumbles per touchDOWN? Even Touches per fumble they make no sense.

Knocking Moreno for that fumble he had against the Ravens is like knocking your best friend who is single for finally getting laid to a 7 in 5 years. Anybody would've fumbled on that hit.

my bad, I missed the percentage part. When is the earliest I can start drinking again? I think I forgot.
