Bay Area sports writer Ira Miller wrote an article about the sad state of the SF 49er running game. Frank Gore, the 49er running back, is having a particularly bad year. To illustrate this, Miller says:
Throw out that 43-yard touchdown run on fourth down against the Rams, and Gore is averaging only 3.1 a carry.
to which one of his readers replied:
Throw out all his other runs and he is averaging an amazing 43.0 a carry.
So I guess it all depends on how you look at it. Aren't football stats fun?
