    Amazing Stat on BJGE.. never fumbled in NFL, College and Possibley HS

    Listening to Bob Ryan this morning on Sports Talk, and they were discussing the formula to this team's success, along with Brady's low interception ratio.. BJGE has never fumbled in the NFL. Then they were talking about how he claims he never fumbled in College or High School, can verify the stats at Indiana and Mississippi, but not able to verify what he did at St. Augustine's in New Orleans..

    Not a huge fan of meaningles stats, but this intrigued me as to have never fumbled is pretty incredible.. hope this post does not jinx him, guilt or anticipation thereof is a terrible burden.

    Consider

    Indiana 456 Rushes no Fumbles
    Mississippi 464 Rushes no Fumbles
    Patriots 290 Rushes no Fumbles, 15 receptions no fumbles..

    He also claims, according to Ryan and his co host, to have never fumbled in High School.. if so that is off the charts...

    Guy's a JAG. Culd replace him with any runner off the street any time in season. It's all the O-Line. He'll be gone next year. Over-rated. Brady can make any Running back look good. As soon as FT is healthy, BJGE is a healthy scratch.

    Ok, I think I covered most of the asinine comments of earlier in the year, saved some of the clingers some time.

    Love Benny and can't wait to see him tear it up in Buffalo on Sunday.

    However.....he did fumble in a preseason game last year...at around the 10 yard line....I think it was the 3rd or 4th preseason game....

    Don't jinx him.

    My thoughts as I was composing this post.. oh the horrors, to be responsible for someone else's behavior.. the good Sisters of St. Joseph's taught me well, forcibly well.

    Pats threw in the towel on their season when they traded away Lawrence Maroney.

    Did some internet searching according to Travis Prentice wiki page he holds the college record for most consecutive attempts without a fumble at 862.

    Travis Prentice - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So it is quite possible that is the old record and BJGE broke that with 926.

    It is possible (but I can't verfiy that) Freeman McNeil holds the NFL record for most consecutive carriers w/o a fumble.

    Re: Amazing Stat on BJGE.. never fumbled in NFL, College and Possibley HS

    McNeil's consecutive rushing attempts with no fumbles is unbelievable. I hope BJGE can have that kind of success in that area.

    BJGE's claim seems a bit dubious to me (no fumbles in a game going all the way back to HS), but he definitely rocks. I remember all the Maroney/BJGE debates late last year and early this year.

    ... but I definetely don't want to rehash those debates, especially since it has now been proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that BJGE is the real deal and Maroney is a glass ballerina with no future in the NFL. :singing:

    Re: Amazing Stat on BJGE.. never fumbled in NFL, College and Possibley HS

    We all agree BB always has a plan. Player is injured: goes to back-up, Front-office leaves: replaces with next guy and doesn't miss a beat, Coach leaves: inserts next in line.......Here's my question. Knowing that he will probably lose coaches x,y,and z, does he hold anything back in player observations? In the case of Josh McDaniels, did he express to Josh, all his wisdom concerning Maroney. Or does he hold back knowing someday, he'll have some leverage.

    Re: Amazing Stat on BJGE.. never fumbled in NFL, College and Possibley HS


    I think Josh knew Maroney's strengths and weaknesses, but he valued him higher than other RBs that he knew very little about. afraid of uncertainty

    or maybe Josh is a bad judge of talent

    or maybe Josh was one of Maroney's strongest supporters and BB used that to get a better trade value for him

    who knows? but I doubt BB withholds his opinions on player evaluation from his other coaches.

    god before i read the end of your post i was already in mid rant for a rebuttal.

    BJGE is not AP but that is just fine with this offense he keeps us on time and is a fighter. Perfect RB tandem with him and woody for this offense

    Josh wasn't ready to be a HC in all phases.

    BB snookered him with LoMo.

    Congratulations to BJGE....first 1000 yard rusher for the Patriots in quite some time!!! I am happy to be one of the few that really knew how GOOD this kid was in college and the potential he had if given a chance.....and he has really flourished......Today he had several situations where he was dead in the water as far as blocking goes....and he STILL plowed ahead for 3+ yards!!!!!!!! The guy is a true patriot.....bided his time....waited behind that waste of space maroney patiently WITHOUT complaining.......and waited for his opp....to get ENOUGH reps consistently to PROVE himself.....and HE DID IT!!! NOW on to the playoffs BJGE......!!!!! CONGRATS!!!!!

    Here's a little nugget to consider, the last time the Pats won a super bowl, they had a 1,000 yard rusher.
