Who knows if we're specifically talking about goal line on 4th down but we do know that last year he was their best RB inside the 5. It's why he had 5 rushing TDs.

That';s a pretty limited category.

In terms all "lessons" on being objective--

* if you can;t accurately describe a player's relevant skill set and how and in what ways it offers advantages or disadvantages you're not being objective

* if you don't look at gamelogs and instead just look at raw unexamined averages you're not being objective

* if you don't account for your own tendency to either be a homer or an automatic skeptic or a switcher/realist you;re not being objective

And so on.

I don;t know who while watching them play would deduce that Henderson is the more skilled back of the 2. Akers has things DH doesn't. Which of course (and I always need to add this apparently) does not make DH a bad back or that the Rams won't have a running game with Akers out.

I do know that saying that leads to many over-reactions, as if saying that meant (1) Henderson was no good, or (2) the Rams won't be able to run the ball with him, or (3) someone is ignoring scheme and blocking, or (4) someone is not being objective because only raw unexamined averages without info from gamelogs is objective.
