Bennett: Herm wants 580 carries this season

Micheal Bennett was on 810 this morning and said that Herm told him they are targeting 580 carries for the season for the team.

I am not very good at math but that is 36.25 carries per game. Poor LJ he may not last to see his next contract.

You're not very bright, are you?

The Chiefs ran the ball 520 times last year.

You're only talking about 4 more rushes per game, and we have a quality backup this year. LJ isn't going to run it 36 times a game, geez.

I'm guessing MB is pointing that out because he expects to see more carries than a #2 RB might otherwise expect.

That doesn't mean LJ is getting all those carries. We do have more than one running back, you know.

LJ was on ESPN last night and said he needs at least 30 carries to get going. I can live with Bennett getting 5-8 carries per game.

I realized that we ran the ball 520 times last year but you do realize that if LJ gets over 400 carries like they want him to do this may limit his career. So do decide to run him in the ground or not?

BTW this is what Petro was talking about today that when the last few RB's who reached the 400 carry plateau they have fallen off dramatically or their careers have ended.

JMO, but Bennett isn't your average backup RB. I'm betting he's going to carry the ball quite a bit.

The thing is, LJ WANTS 30+ carries a game. He was on ESPN yesterday talking about how he doesn't get "warmed up" until 30 carries or so. If you watched him in college, this wouldn't be too surprising; they ran him all the time. I don't think he would hold up to the pounding, but the guy wants the rock...a lot...

That's to many.........he'll set the record for carries and have a 3 year career. I'd rather not shorten his career dramatically so he can break the single season record.

He got 336 last year, 9 in which he started or was it 7 I can't remember.

400 carries in a 16 game season is 25 carries per game. You don't think he will get 25 carries per game?

No.

We're going to be shortening the games, and we have Bennett.

From ESPN.com

Although he started only nine games in 2005, not moving into the lineup until Holmes was lost to neck and back injuries that might still threaten his career, Johnson registered big numbers. In his nine starts, Johnson went over 100 yards every game, with seven outings of 130 or more yards and a pair of 200-yard performances. During the starting stretch, Johnson carried 261 times for 1,351 yards and 16 touchdowns. In only one of the nine games did he fail to score, and he had six multiple-touchdown games, with two contests in which he scored three times.

Extrapolate those numbers over a 16-game season and here's what you get: 464 carries, 2,402 yards, and 28 touchdowns.

OK, so hand any back the ball 464 times in a season -- the league record for rushes is 410, established by Jamal Anderson of Atlanta in 1998, and only three men have ever posted 400 carries in a year -- and his legs might fall off. But Johnson embraces the workhorse tag and feels he gets better with more work in a game, and opponents concur.
