Those stats are so misleading its not even worth saying it. Guys who are RBs who barely make the team then are cut half way thru the season are why they last only 3 years. Look at how many guys who are actually starting RBs and look at how long they have been in the league. I know they dont have near the longevity of QBs but they certainly usually hang around longer than 3 years.
