Chris Perry is Averaging 2.9 Yards-Per-Carry

We allowed that the rust on Chris Perry would require a game or two -- after a full preseason, training camp -- to shake off. Having dumped Rudi Johnson in favor for the younger, swifter and stronger Perry seemed like a logical course of action, especially when considering that $3.2 million was allocated to a running back that seemed so degraded, that he'd never successfully run the ball on any single NFL down.

No, Chris Perry doesn't have the luxury of an effective offensive line that should be embarrassed to take home any paycheck for services NOT rendered. However, Perry's highest yards-per-carry, in any game, was 3.7 at the New York Giants. He's failed to reach over 3.0 yards per in two games.(Oh yea, and he's fumbled four times)
