dc.description.abstract This study examines the deterioration of an NFL running back. The two factors examined in this study are the age and wear and tear of a running back. Age is examined by comparing the affect of one additional year of age on running back production, during their ages of decline. Wear and tear is examined by comparing the affect that an additional season’s workload has on production. Results show a non-linear relationship between both age and career workload with production. Running back production is shown to gradually decline at higher ages as well as higher career workload levels. There is also evidence to dismiss the possibility of an age threshold for running back production. Interestingly, however, there appears to be a possible threshold in career workload and its affect on production. en
