Sure, he's earned criticism...... I've never denied that. Everyone knows he has to fix his fumbling problem, but he's important for the success of this team. We don't have another RB of his quality, regardless of his flaws. You were calling for Battle to get more carries, but he's not Mathews. Todays stats: Battle - 15 carries, 39 yards for a 2.6 yard average. Mathews - 14 carries, 61 yards for a 4.4 yard average.
