    Hey Dave,

    Thanks again for processing this info ( gads, I can only imaging the work you must put into this) posting this.

    BTW: Remeber yesterday we were talking about rushing averages and the 4 yards a pop is too much? Please note that based on your numbers through the first four games, we are pretty darn close to that average on the nose. This is a significant improvement over the past couple of years.
