Short version: dislike him all you want. He's not a fumbler.
In 34 attempts he has 3 fumbles this year.

4 fumbles in 2010 including 1 in a playoff game and 1 in the Superbowl.

3 fumbles in 2009 (242 attempts).

I don't know how that compares to other running backs so I won't tell you I am fully confident in my argument but that looks bad. I am especially looking at 2010. Not only did he fumble but look at the games he did it in. That is bad news.
