    Re: Chester Taylor LEADING the NFL in RUSHING!!!

    Taylor has the moves and as our O-line continues to gell his numbers should only get better.
    The way Hutchinson stayed with his block to open that hole is why we paid him the big bucks.

    Since you barely need over 60 YPG to get to 1000 for a season, it's not all that impressive.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Considering you were coughing up lung cookies after walking 37 yds to the concession stand, it is a big feat.

    It is when the Vikings have failed to produce a 1000 yard rusher since 2002 (cant remember exactly the last time).
    Chester is on pace for 1600 yards this year, that IS impressive.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    I haven't been quite sure about Taylor from the start, been kinda hard on him but he's proven me wrong.
    I'm glad to see that we actually have an RB now who can pick up some big yards.

    Always liked Taylor (great sogning by Childress) but had no faith in the Oline. Really glad to see the Oline clicking.

    Re: Chester Taylor LEADING the NFL in RUSHING!!!

    I don't know how many rushing attempts he has, but he must be pretty close to the top in that category as well.
    I like the fact that he hits the hole with some pop, and can still out run a db when he gets behind them...his speed really shocked me Sunday.
    I don't want to bring the jinx, but a healthy season, and the way this line is coming together, I see Taylor breaking the 2000 yard mark this season.
    Childress will certainly give him enough attempts to get there.

    At least until the game tonight...Tiki will probably pass him...BUT I don't think that the Giants have had a bye week yet...SO once every RB has had a bye week, Chester will still be right up in there!

    http://www.nfl.com/stats
    He has had his bye, BUT ... if he is held to 56 yards or less and Julius Jones is held to 95 yards or less Taylor becomes the leading RUSHER PER GAME IN THE LEAGUE! which puts him on pace for about 1,570 yards for the season!

    Well as I see it, it's not only the yards that count, the attempts are very important as well. Most RB's hit their stride and get stronger as the game goes along. As well as the Oline gains more confidence and smells blood when the RB breaks off yardage in big chunks.
