    Does anyone know the stats on Polite in short yardage situations over the past 2 years? I want to say he converted something like 22/24 short yardage attempts... does anyone know the exact number?

    From dolphinshout.com... not sure these are the official ones but, they had some stats:

    http://www.dolphinshout.com/2011/07/2011-miami-dolphins-key-role-player.html

    • 2008 – Handed the ball 12 times on 3rd, or 4th down and 1, and converted 11 of those attempts into first downs (92%)
    • 2009 – Given the ball 16 times in the same situation, and converted all of them (100%)
    • 2010 – In the same situation, dished the ball 15 times and converted 14 of them (93%)

    If these are accurate then that would make him 41/43 over the past 3 years and 30/31 over the past 2 years.

    Legend has it that the football Gods invented the first down marker to keep Lousaka Polite from marching into infinity.

    Too bad he wasn't that accurate in his blocking assignments last year. He struggled.

    Lousaka is a good fb despite his blocking whic can improve if he works on it.

    I think there in lies the quagmire... his first two years in the league he was also one heck of a blocker... something happened last year. I don't know what it was but his blocking fell off the charts.

    I remember him blocking the snot out of people in 2009 or was it 2008... which ever I do remember hearing his name and seeing replays of his blocking prowess prior to last year. That or I was imagining it, which will not discount.
