CBSSports.com "discovers" the Curse of 370

http://fantasynews.cbssports.com/fantasyfootball/story/12091459

"Since 1988, 17 running backs have had at least 370 carries. None have improved their rushing yards or touchdowns in the following season, and eight (Larry Johnson, Shaun Alexander, Curtis Martin, Jamal Lewis, Edgerrin James, Jamal Anderson, Terrell Davis and Barry Foster) suffered injuries, some even career-ending."

Credit was given: "The "Curse of 370," which was first pointed out by Football Outsiders founder Aaron Schatz in 2004, has a long history."

Eventually. Look at the date on my post, then the date on the article. They edited it.
