    I think there are now 5 players to average 25 carries a game (400 carries a year) with the addition of LJ this season.

    That is correct comahan

      Agreed, Foster and Williams did very well considering they had no line. Last two years foster's been running behind scrubs and our running game has sucked because of it.

          It can also help if you have a consistent QB. That way the opposing defense's aren't always putting 8 men in the box and stuffing the run, ala Buccaneers 06.

            That is about a well as anyone could have said it, except "weak".

It's under 70 yards a game and with the way athletes are trained now-a-days 25 carries a games isn't difficult so realistically a player could average under 3 yards per carry and still achieve 1000 yards. Now 1500 yards is quite an accomplishment b/c that's almost 100 yards a game and it signifies that you've stayed fairly healthy through the duration of the season.
              Not even close actually. 25 carries a game over a 16 game season is 400 carries. Few running backs can do that over a complete season. The only RB to do that last season was LJ and the second highest total was only 348 or 21.75 carries a game. So no, 25 carries a game is very difficult.

                runnigbacks come off the street. The jets upgraded their line considerably and the same team that couldn't make Curtis Martin look good(before his injury last year) made Leon Washington look good.

                    It's not the RB, it's the system. That's why Denver always has nice running backs due to their zone blocking scheme which is very RB friendly.

                    Betts is nice, but the Skins' line was playing out of its mind towards the end of the season. 1000 yards with Betts in there would have been 1300-1400 with Portis.

                      The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

                      If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

                        Oline is always more important than RB. RBs are dime a dozen. And with durability in the NFL reaching lower levels due to the speed of the collisions, you want 2 able backs who can stay fresh over a year opposed to one RB who will wear down at the end of the season.

                          I agree, 1200 sounds about right. That and Westbrook rushed for 1217 this season.

                            Barry Sanders = Great back with a mediocre line. Say whatever you want about an O-Line, LDT is a game breaker with or without a good line.

                              Since 1000 is an easier accomplishment, 1500 should be the number to beat.

                                agreed except Sanders didn't even have a mediocre line. there line was attrocious. but then again guys like barry sanders gale sayers and LT are the exception to the rule. those guys can make it happen with one guy blocking for them.


                                Silverback....still the best.
