Tyler Thigpen's stats were only as "good" as they were because everybody was shoving eight and nine guys in the box to stop their running game, and making Thigpen beat them.

And even so, all Thigpen did is play well enough to get his team beat - just like Steve DeBerg did for the 49ers in 1979 and 1980 (at least according to Bill Walsh).
