Crewmannumber6: I sincerely hope that a recount verifies that he DID break the record, and I don't have a dog in this fight.
VvonderJesus: As a stats major, I approve of this link.

KJUW89: Crewmannumber6: I sincerely hope that a recount verifies that he DID break the record, and I don't have a dog in this fight.If that happens they should go back to Eric Dickerson's record season and apply the same measuring standards.
aharown: Point 2) Also, the article is distinctly incorrect at a couple of points that my skimming found. "a carry reported as 6 yards could just as easily be 5.7 yards or 6.4 yards or whatever." This is distinctly untrue. A carry reported as closer to the midpt (in this case 6) has a greater likelihood of actually being within a half hard of that midpt (6) than being closer to the other option. In other words, it's more likely that a carry reported as 6.4 is actually 6.5 and should be recorded as 7 than it is that a carry reported as 5.7 is actually 5.49 and should be recorded as 5.
IAmRight: It's still not as bad as fantasy leagues that still do whole-point values. "Oh, your QB threw for 349 yards while your opponent threw for 250...well, you get 6 points to his 5. That accurately represents the disparity between those numbers."
roc6783: At least that is an optional setting, what about end of game kneel downs counting as negative rushing yards? That is BS right there.
