I could well be missing somebody, but here's my best guess of career leaders by team, counting only the yards they gained for that team. We don't stack up very well.

Wow. Those numbers for Payton and Sanders are just amazing. Really puts it in perspective when you see it in this context. Makes me wish Sanders hadn't retired so early.

This makes Emmit's 17172 even more impresive. I cant stand the cowboys but Smith's numbers are impressive.

Interestingly, Tony Dorsett and Jerome Bettis are ranked 5th and 6th in total yards, respectively, but neither holds a franchise record.

I have a hard time giving Smith his due. Made even harder by him still playing and looking like sh*t doing it.

I guess Sanders retiring early isn't such a bad thing.

I could have swore Priest passed up Okoye last year.

Too bad we didn't get Priest a few years earlier.
