TD did more in 4 seasons than many RBs achieve in a 10 year career. At the time, many said "yeah that's great, but he doesn't have longevity". So, you add a few years on after the injury and while you get 7 years... it can water down stats if you view them as BigCatDaddy did. Doesn't tell the tale though.

Injuries cut his career short, but if healthy ... and given the choice between TD, Thurman Thomas, Curtis Martin, Jerome Bettis and a host of others... give me Terrell Davis.

1995 - 1,117 yds / 7 TD / 49 rec - 367 yds - 1 TD
1996 - 1,538 yds / 13 TD / 36 rec -310 yds - 2 TD
1997 - 1,750 yds / 15 TD / 42 rec - 287 yds
1998 - 2,008 yds / 21 TD / 25 rec - 217 yds - 2 TD

One 2K rushing season
Two 2K total yard seasons

4 Seasons (61 games started) - 6,613 Rushing Yds / 56 TD / 1,181 Rec Yds / 5 TDs

In 1996, 1997 and 1998 he played in 8 Playoff Games.
TD's stats in 8 playoff games are 1,140 yards rushing / 12 TD / 19 rec - 131 yds
TD had 7 100+ yd rushing games, 4 of those were over 150 yds

1999 - season ending injury in Game #4 (again, thank you Griese)

1999 - 211 yds / 2 TD / 3 rec - 26 yds
2000 - 282 yds / 2 TD / 2 rec - 4 yds
2001 - 701 yds / 0 TD / 12 rec - 69 yds

1996 NFL AP Offensive Player of the Year
1997 NFLSuper Bowl MVP1998 NFL
AP MVP1998 NFL
PFWA MVP1998 NFL
AP Offensive Player of the Year

3X Pro Bowl & 3X NFL All Pro
1996, 1997, 1998

So, yeah... he was a damn great player for a short period of time, thanks to injury and Brian Griese.
