    He's only got 6 fumbles listed in his career stats over 628 carries.

    Either way he rarely fumbled. CJ has 4 over 609 carries.

    1 every 104

    vs

    1 every 152

    And CJ doesn't fumble much, so to say Lendale does "half the time" wasn't very wise.

    LenDale White
    628 carries, 8 fumbles (including playoffs) = 1 fumble per 78 carries

    Chris Johnson
    609 carries, 4 fumbles = 1 fumble per 152 carries


    But yes, I do think it's fair to say that LenDale fumbles the ball half the time he carries it is far from being true.

    You're forgetting playoff attempts and fumbles... you know, the most important attempts and fumbles.

    My bad. I missed that.

    I just went to nfl.com, searched LenDale White, and it said he had 7 fumbles... I guess it doesn't count playoffs... which I agree is the most important part of the game, and LenDale let us down.

    LenDale did have one of the most painful fumbles of all time against the Ravens in the playoffs. I'm still not over that game.

    The Ravens own us in January. They stole a playoff win from Eddie back in the day, then LenDale lost one too. The only way we can win a game would seem to be to kill off Ray Ray.

    Which stat page has him with 8? ESPN has him with 6.

    NFL.com has him with seven in regular season games. He also had one in the playoffs. You can also look at the game logs.
