Default LT first RB since Barry Sanders to have no fumbles in a season w/300 carries

Cut this little piece from the UT.

thought this was an interesting stat and one that probably doesn't get recognized enough...


Should he get through today's game without losing the ball, Tomlinson will become the first player since Barry Sanders in 1994 to complete a season with more than 300 touches and no fumbles. Moreover, Tomlinson has handled the ball 662 times since his last fumble, which could well be an NFL record.
Elias Sports Bureau, which does the official statistics for the NFL, said this week it has no record for consecutive touches without a fumble. Sanders went 486 touches between fumbles in his streak from Nov. 7, 1993, to Sept. 17, 1995.
“It's incredible,” Norv Turner said.
“It's amazing,” Lorenzo Neal said.
“It's unbelievable,” Philip Rivers said.

It is amazing. I remember watching Chuck Muncie, every time he carried the ball i would yell at the TV..."dont ****** fumble". I cant remember the last time it happened with LT.

I think that may be his most impressive stat this season. He got all the TDs last year, been #1 in yards...

But taking care of the football above and beyond that?

Amazing. I love it.

That's nice that LT has a stat to match Barry Sanders, but I hope he doens't match Sanders as being one of the best RB's to never win a Super Bowl.

Great for LT.

Not to hijack this thread, but I didnt want to start a new one for this. For what it's worth:

Not only did Cro win the Interception title for the season, but according to NFL . com's stat page, he also led the league in passes defended w/28. I have no idea how accurate their stats are, but there ya go.

Not to shabby for someone that didn't even start the whole season.

Edit: I forgot to throw in that Champ was listed in 22nd place on the PD list.

Thanks for the correction. Then his other fumble must have been in the season prior to that, at Denver ;-)

This is a truely amazing Stat , when you consider that he is the NO.1 target that every opponent gameplans around.
Not to mention how often he is still sent straight up the middle into 8 man fronts.
Durability and Toughness to go with all his other assets.............
Definetly a "Great".

It was the KC game, not Baltimore.

I remember it being in the KC game last year. That Fumble plus the Rivers INT is what got us in a hole early.
