I don't buy the spilt argument. Take into consideration that almost every player is going to have fewer impressive numbers on the road, and then take into account that his road splits aren't particularly bad. Examining his tenure in Colorado in such a way trivializes his longevity and consistency that would have been easily transposed elsewhere.
