    Re: Is 1,000 yards a good measure?

    1000 will ALWAYS be used...if for no other reason than the fact that it is a round number...and America is fascinated by round numbers! 1000 is still impressive, but the main thing is that the RB gives a team a solid running game so that it opens the passing game up enough for the offense to be balanced and so that the opposing defense can't tee off on the QB all day.

    1500 is the new benchmark for ELITE status, however...not many reach that mark each year...the few that do have to be considered the top dogs!

    Re: Is 1,000 yards a good measure?

    I think if you factor in the high-injury rate of RBs, 1000 yards is still impressive. I have never seen a team with a 1,000 yard rusher that wasn't satisfied with his play that season. If a back gets a 1,000 yards he had a good season, not great, but it means he is doing his job at least.
