All that being said, fat % alone does not determine if a back can succeed; Bettis carried far more fat than JD ever has, and he was a beast for many years, even carrying an extra 30 lbs, at least. But JB was one very unique cat; there has never been a back that big who lasted for that long. Every RB in the history of the game that weighed 250+ has had only one season of 1,000 yards, except two - Bettis and Natrone Means. Means had only 2, while JB had 7. That is a revealing stat if I have ever seen one.
so why can fat % determine how good a coach is but not necessarily a running back?

And when do the players take responsibility for their actions in the course of playing the game?
People can talk all they want about penalties and turnovers and lack of focus being the coach's fault. That's horse crap. On game day the players play, and they are the ones who take stupid penalties.
Last year, the Giants won the SB. This year, they missed the playoffs...
Does that have more to so with Coughlin's coaching? Or the fact that Eli led the league in 4th quarter TD passes last year and not this year?
