    That is the thing that I don't understand. What happened to Holmes and Johnson? They were run in to the ground. Everybody screaming for more touches should remember that.

      Yeah but there's a difference between more carries and giving him over 400 carries. Ideally I think Charles should look to have 20-25 touches per game, both running and receiving

        Holmes wasn't run into the ground, Merriman gave him a spinal injury.

          No, he was run into the ground (. Merriman just finished what Dick Vermiel started. He had played in only 15 games in the previous three seasons.

            Since when is a career high of 327 carries being run into the ground? Holmes just had a string of freak injuries, he wasn't run into the ground.

              Yeah, let's not overlook the 70 catches he averaged in that three year span or anything. He averaged almost 400 touches a season in that time frame.

                380 touches a season isn't really that big of a deal for a premium running back.

                  Where'd 20 of those touches go?

                    Eh, he never actually got to 400 touches. More like 390ish.

                      So you just figured you subtract another 10?

                        380 is just such a prettier number than 390.

                          This is true.

                          • Larry Johnson had 457 touches in 06. Now that's getting run into the ground.

                            • IF Jamaal had that many touches he would have 3000 yards from scrimmage

                                If Charles had that many touches, he'd be averaging a lot less per touch.
