Seasons 3-4: During Ryan Mathews third and fourth seasons he would fumble on average once every 117 carries (Total of 468 carries and 4 fumbles).

Now lets combine the stats from Ryan Mathews first four years as a Member of the San Diego Chargers. In four seasons as a member of the San Diego Chargers Ryan Mathews had 849 carries and he has fumbled 14 times. On average Mathews fumbles once every 56.6 carries.

I went ahead and ran a statistical analysis of how many fumbles Ryan Mathews would have acquired had he carried the ball 1,363 times. Ryan Mathews would have had about 1,132 carries on his 19th fumble. In total Ryan Mathews would have had 23 fumbles at the 1,363 carries mark. Considering LaDainian Tomlinson will be a Hall of Fame running back those statistics are not bad at all. But take a look at the production between the two running backs and you will be amazed.
