    2000 yards...Good or Bad?

    NFL Network brought up an interesting question today, AD reaching 2000 yards would obviously be a great milestone but would the load necessary to accomplish it be worth it considering how much wear he would receive in doing so?
    Think about the past running backs to accomplish the feat and how much less productive they were afterwards.


    I definitely would not be upset with him getting the 2 G's, but as long as he stays healthy and in the 1200+ range then I would consider that successful.

    Re: 2000 yards...Good or Bad?

    Oh yeah ... soooo unproductive. Eric Dickerson ONLY had FIVE more 1,200 yard season and was ONLY three more times All-Pro, OJ Simpson only rushed for 1,100 yards THREE more times and was ONLY and all-pro three more times, Barry Sanders only rushed for 1,400 yards and was named to the Pro Bowl ... how unproductive.
    Hell, even Jamal Lewis has rushed for 1,000 yards three times since his great year, including 1,100 + with 9 TDs each of the last two season.
    Wow, none of these guys ran for 2,000 yards again ... they must be unproductive?
    C'mon ... every 2,000 yard rusher remained productive EXCEPT for T.D. due to horrific knee injuries.

    Re: 2000 yards...Good or Bad?

    Well...it would depend on what his YPC is. If he can reach 6+ then it would only be 20 carries a game, which would not be excessive. If he averages more than that, then something is probably wrong. CT would not be seeing enough balls and T-Jack would have failed to
    progress.

    All and all, I hope he doen't, because it would mean our offense has a passing attack. If they stack the box, we throw the ball over them. If they drop back, we run them over. That would lead to a SB victory!! 8)

    I was just going off of what the NFL Network brought up.
    After seeing what you mentioned though yeah, I am with you on that one.

    Its a somewhat valid arguement.
    Dickerson and OJ played in another era.
    The average size of the defenders was a lot less and backs didn't take the kind of beating RBs do today.
    Barry Sanders was the most elusive back, ever. No one got big shots on him, and he didn't have a ton of goaline carries. Jamal Lewis certainly took a step back after is 2K season.
    1000 yards a season is hardly a great measure with a 16 game season.
    That Averages 62 yards a game. Big whoopty doo.


    Now the 2000 yards is not the issue for me.
    Its the amount of carries.
    Fantasy Football players here this arguement on RB values every year.
    Its well documented that RBs with a certain amount of carries (350+, 400+) usually have a drop off in production.


    With AD's bruising style of running, I don't want to see him get the ball 30+ times a game.
    CT is too good not give him some reps and take pressure off AD.
    I am with Chazz, 20 to 25 carries a game at his 5.5ypc (or more) average gets him close without too much where and tear.

    IMO, I don't care who is carrying the ball AD, CT, MH, TJ, etc.... I would like 3000 yards rushing for the team

    Just by your statement you prove it is NOT a valid argument. You immediately concede that THREE of the FIVE who did it DID not take a step backward. And Jamal Lewis did not "just get 1,000 yards" ... he had 1300 last season with 9 TDs. VERY productive.
    The only one who did not have productive seasons afterwards was T.D. and that was ONLY because he blew his knee out.

    Re: 2000 yards...Good or Bad?

    I don´t think that occurs cause I guess the pass is gonna be more important this year on our playbook with Berrian and a more reliable Rice .Besides CT will also take a big load of our carries.
