Yeah, because two rookies competing with each other for time on a team that rarely allows rookies to see ANY time on the field are going to accumulate good stats...honesty the fact that either of them even saw the field outside of special teams is impressive, let alone the fact that they both not only saw time but contributed to the team...
Looking at their yardage to judge them is just stupid. Tomlin and Arians were stubborn to give ARE's 3rd spot on the depth chart to them until after the Patriots game...yeah they had under 500 yards combined but they only really had 6 games to accumulate any stats at all...not to mention the playoffs where they were both awesome (minus the SB)
