    No. Some RBs actually state goals that might actually be reached. Although I doubt he even does this, Brandon Jacobs said he is going to break 1600 rushing yards.

      i think he will have a down year as more teams will game plan for him even more than last year

          He had the most long runs in the league last year by a pretty good margin. I'll look up the exact stat, but he definately had the most in the league.
          Yeah, 15 runs of 20+

          Just for a reference on whats a good number, Tomlinson has never done more than 12 a season, and hes considered the best breakaway runner in the game.

          Thanks jkpigskin!

              I think he is saying that some of those 25, 30, 35, yard runs could have been taken to the house if he had more elite speed. Just because you have the most 20+ yard runs doesn't mean you have elite speed.

                But to say his weakness is an inability to make long runs is a little far fetched when he leads the league in 20+ runs. Sure hes not as fast as Tomlinson, but I wouldnt call his speed a weakness by any stretch of the imagination.

                Hes got a fast burst and great football speed. 90% of running backs are occasionally gonna get caught by the really fast DB's.

                Thanks jkpigskin!

                  A better stat would be 40 yards runs. How many 40+ did he have. Because you can get 20 yards without breaking away from anyone.

                    lol if you worry about getting hurt while your playing it's only a matter of time until you do.

                        He doesn't have to worry. But he could try to avoid defenders and not take a direct hit from time to time. As a starting RB that will catch up to him.

                          It may, but he's only 24. He doesn't have to change his running style exactly right now.

                              Last year, they didn't want any part of him when he was coming right at them. This year willb e no different. He hurst people, but I doubt he get 2000 yards. On the other hand, if the whole O click, he may do that. They needs serious WR help though to keep the D from stacking the line. It takes multiple defenders to bring him down.

                                They will do the same thing people do to LJ put 8 and 9 in the box on every down no way either break 2000.
