Ryan Mathews touched the ball only five times on third down in 2012.
That's out of 223 touches. It's just one of many shocking statistics from Mathews' discouraging 2012, and indicative of former coach Norval Turner's lack of trust in a player he traded up 16 spots to get in the 2010 draft. If Mathews is to get his career back on track in 2013, he'll be doing so under a coordinator in Ken Whisenhunt who oversaw an offense that finished dead last in 2012 rushing attempts. That's despite the fact he had the worst quarterback situation in the league.
