Short version: dislike him all you want. He's not a fumbler.
Agreed: Mendenspin does not fumble often. That said...

A certain "un-named" QB was insanely good at not throwing INTs. But, he had TWO in SuperBowl XXX.

Likewise, I don't think that Ernest Byner fumbled very often... but, he has a play named after him, called The Fumble.

In other words, totals are less important than timing.
