    Count Down to 1808

    With his absolutely stunning performance today, Adrian Peterson is now at 1,036 rushing yards (6.6 yards/carry so far.. lol) and 8 TD's. Eric Dickerson rushed for 1808 yards in 1983 as a rookie for the Los Angeles Rams.


    I plan on updating in this thread where he's at after each game, think he'll get it? 8 more games, 772 more yards.
    I think he can do it!
    RoY is already a lock thats all i know.

    Week 8: 1036 (772 to go)

    Needs to average 96.5 a game, adjust per week.

    Dickerson's RUSHING record is 1808.
    the 2,105 yards you posted is tacking on his 390 recieving yards.

    (btw, Dickerson got All-Pro, Pro Bowl, Rookie of the Year, and Player of the Year (mvp) for his record setting year)

    if you're going going to compare his 2,105 vs Adrians you have to tack on his recieving yards too, which he has 206 :P

    if you're doing that.. 1036+206 = 1242, which puts him on pace to have 2484 yards..
    ;D lol.
    and thats not counting his kick returning yards

    Re: Count Down to 1808

    I think 2,105 is attainable and 1,808 is attainable if he stays healthy and does not tire. Dickerson also had 400+ receiving yards and 20 total TDs his rookie year.
    I would like to see Peterson rival all of those numbers. (The Rams also went 9-7 and won a playoff game after going 2-7 the prior year ... lets hope Peterson can have that kind of impact).

    oh i didnt notice you put 1984, not '83.
    and besides, the record i meant this thread for is his ROOKIE rushing record
    ;D
    i guess i should have noticed since 1808+390 = 2198 not 2105
    lol
