    Why stay and bust your but for a team who's fan base doesn't appreciate it all the things you've done for the franchise.

    Wait, 1,500 is the new 1,000 when runners are getting less carries than ever before? How is that exactly? Almost every single back in the league shares carries and sees their teams pass more often than ever before. Please explain how the standards should be higher for RB's than before with less opportunities.

    1,000 yards for a RB who is getting the vast majority of a team's carries does not carry the weight it once did. Thirteen players rushed for over 1,000 yards last year. It's hardly a special accomplishment these days.

    Yes, but 20 years ago that number would have been higher than 13. Not lower.

    Lesean McCoy was the only RB to top 1,500 yards last year. So again, I ask you, how is it that 1,500 is the new 1,000?

    It's more fair to say that 1,100 or 1,200 is the new 1,000. 1,500 seems really steep to me. Stop arguing with these guys. They hate him enough to not only pretend his career is officially over but also that he never did anything positive. To them all that ever existed were his negative plays. It's pointless to argue in good faith with these guys.
