Yep, and while I don't place a lot of value on SB, I do like guys who are successful when they run. Heisey in 2008, 32 SB, and 2 CS. I don't know how many times he got picked-off if any, but if it was less than 5, that is about as effective a use of the running game possible.
For comparison sake Drew Stubbs in 2008 33SB and 9 CS, in 2007 23 SB and 15 CS. Chris Dickerson in 2008 31 SB and 10 CS, in 2007 30 SB and 7 CS.
On my team Stubbs and Dickerson would both get the stop sign. Heisey would get the green light.
