I hope not because the only way LJ gets that many yards is if Priest is injured.

The Steelers led the league in rushes last year with 618. There's no way we run the ball as much as they did last year in this offense. :shake:

I see more like 300 for Priest, 150 for LJ, and 50 for the rest of the team. The more big leads we get the more carries LJ and our FBs etc. get.

That would be almost 20 carries each per game. No way. 1000 yards each is much more likely than 300 carries each.
220 Carries each
1000 Yards each
4.55 YPC each
Possible

It's not the quality of the run game I questioned rather than the number of times we would use it based on the type of Offensive system we have.

But yes we do.

For a point of reference we had 496 total carries last year, 446 in 2003, and 462 in 2002.

If DV and Co. want them to get 1,000 yards each I think they would but it depends on what our philosophy is in regards to the two backs. Depending upon how thngs go if we blow out very many teams like we did in 2003 LJ could get alot of mop up carries which in this case will be totally devastating to the other teams cause a freash LJ against a tired deafeated defense is a nightmare for those guys. I can really se it both players getting a grand each.

Laz that is only 125 per game combined on 37.5 carries per game=3.33 per rush. I hope you are wrong. I like the 600 chances though-lets hope we run the ball that much-that means we are running the clock much bettr than last year. When they put 8 in the box to stop us, we have plenty of weapons to burn them deep. Ya that is what you were thinking-set up the pass-lol

I disagree. With LJ's big play ability I think he'll average 5 yds. per carry. That's only 200 carries which translates to 12.5 carries per game. I think he'll get that. From what we've been hearing out of training camp about LJ's speed and power, IMO, we'd be stupid not to give him that.

Priest said it himself; he wants a ring and he thinks playing LJ more is going to improve his chances of getting one. I agree with him.

my perfect scenario:

Priest: 1200 yards 20 TD's

LJ: 800 Yards 8 TD's

Chiefs had 63 rushing TD's last year. They also ranked 5th with 143.1 per game. Priest had 14 LJ 9
D. Blaylock 8
Say we stay we drop 20% in rushing Td's which I don't think will happen, but that leaves 51 between Preist and LJ Priest will, have 31 LJ 15, the rest will comne on bootlegs and end arounds. Still nice numbers. I see us running more to help eat the clock to rest our deffense. We will get a big lead then run it down their throats behind the best O-line in the league. Halfcan

that's why i put the "+" at the end of each

100+ carries = 100 or more


i put no top end limit to the question

Most of that (496 2004) being because of the Falcons game I bet.

I hope your right laz 600+ carries would be awesome-just ground and pound!!
Toss the Falcons game out and that is still 55 TD's in 15 games or 3.67 rushing TD'S per game-that is amazing. But according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo, our offense is over the hill, and in for a big let down that will have us finishing 4th in the division. Halfcan

With Tony G., the Chiefs have a slightly above average receiver corps, IMO.

With the best Offensive Line and the best one-two RB punch in the league, I'd say that 250 carries for each is not a stretch. They both have equal but different abilities which will ensure that both get a good number of carries, IMO.

Priest helps run up the score in the first half. Running attack by Johnson in the second half destroys the clock.

I can see that scenario easily. The only thing I would add is that Johnson would not only kill the clock but also the will of the defense when he breaks a long one for a score.
