Addai has the same ammount of fumbles (1) as Jones on 158 less carries.Let me say that again, did you catch that number? Jones has carried the ball 158 more times than Addai, yet Adaai has the same ammount of fumbles. That percentage comes to be this: Addai fumbles 1.6% of the time. Jones? 0.5%. Wow. So who's the better back. Jones is. No question.
Wait, where is this stat coming from? Display how you arrived at the numbers listed.
Well, I think it's clear as of now that Julius Jones is the better RB. Let me explain. Now keep in mind JJ has played one less game than Addai. Julius Jones has better breakaway speed than Joseph Addai. One example: Julius has 3 runs of over 20 yards. Addai? Not a single run of 20 yards or more.
Jones runs with more power. There's no stat to show that this is true, but just look at the tape. Jones is fighting for every inch in some runs. Addai is going down much easier than Jones. Some Addai patrons may point to the fact that adaii has a better average of yards per carry. To that, I have two things to say. Addai is playing behind one of the best run blocking lines in the league. Jones, however, not so much. Dallas' line is average at best. Number 2: Addai is fresh because doesn't get the load that Jones does. Addai can came in rested and ready to run, while the Cowoys often pound Jones play after play, and Jones will get worn down, but who wouldn't? Sure, Addai may be able to catch more balls, but did you ever consider that Julius Jones doesn't go out for passes as much because has has to stay in to protect Bledsoe? Also, when Jones does catch the ball, he is more of a threat. On 2 catches, he has 61 yards. That's called explosiveness, my friends.

I think everyone is talking about this season. JJ has had 86 carries while Addai has only have 59. Addai has also caught 13recpetions vs 2 for JJ.
So 72 touches vs 88 for JJ. I dont even see the point of bringing up fumbles to compare the two.
nevermind since you just corrected yourself.
I dont think its fair to compare addai when he doesnt get the bulk of the carries. when he start getting around ~20 carries, then we can start comparing addai to other featured backs.
O.K.... This vision that addai is a little guy who bounces around like Reggie Bush is not lagitament. If you have watched his he doesn't go down easy (Staubach12) He also runs with power and fights for extra yards. As for the lines I think that the colts guards are not really all that great at blocking. It is sometimes hard to go up the middle, but the outside is money with Tarik Glenn. Also, Ryan Diem has been playing injured so don't bring up the line issue. The cowboys have a pretty solid line. When Ryan Diem is back we'll be very solid. I'm sorry that this might be kinda homerish, but I love Joseph Addai and I had to argue with Staubach when he said Julius Jones was better.
