Three Years of the Elusive Rating-Pierre Thomas ranked 7th

If there’s one thing better than a full season’s worth of data, it’s a full three season’s worth of data and we’re in the midst of bringing you the highlights from three years of many of our Signature Stats. Every season we offer up the Elusive Rating numbers–a look at which NFL runners are the toughest to bring down–and we’ve now taken the numbers from the past three years, loaded them in the hopper, and sifted it all to bring you the gold.

In essence, a runner can be elusive either by running over or around would-be tacklers. He gets credit for forcing missed tackles however he does it and gets additional credit for earning yards after contact. The better he performs in those areas, the better his Elusive Rating will be. If a runner fails to make people miss, and goes down on contact, he will not score well in this aspect.

I'm impressed that 5 of the top 10 are in the NFC South.

Sproles is in the bottom group for the 3 year rating but he's number 13 for the 2011 season.

In that Lions game last year (first one or maybe both) Pierre was running the ball and man you could really feel the love from the crowd, it reminded me of Deuce -- not him as a runner just the vibe from the crowd in the Dome whenever his name was called out after a first down.

If he'd played the entire 49er game, we win by 3 scores.

If we do not fumble we win my 6 scores. If there are no interceptions we win by 8 TD's.

Obviously, but I was just keeping it all about Pierre Thomas' affect on the game.

Thats 109 - 15 I took off 3 TD's ,because they had a short field from turnovers, sounds right.

In ancient samara, and turk around 600 bce they used to take their best warriors , kill them and encase them in Bronze to pressure their greatness forever

Maybe we should look into something like that for PT, or do you think that might be taken the wrong way ?

I definitely think that if PT were encased in bronze, he would not have been knocked out of the 49ers game...

You're probably right, but do you think he would still be as elusive?
