    Expanding on the "How many carries" thing

    He will be splitting a role, which means less carries.

    He had 279 carries in 2013, 3.9 YPC 1077 yds.


    Say he goes down to 179 carries (very realistic if not too high). Assume 3.9 stays the same..

    698 yards on the season.


    Are you expecting him to get 8.5 yards per carry?????

    because that is the only way he will have about 1500 yards on the season, with that many carries.

    so... Unless he gets a starring role, I wouldn't count on nearly that many yards.

    If he halves his carries from last year (Also realistic) he will have to get 10 YPC to get 1390 yards.

    The only way CJ gets those yards is if he's grinding out 300 attempts and if that happens The Jets face the problems we have known all too well - unsustained drives etc.
    Who gives a fart about a 1000yd back anyway? That sh*t is just window dressing.
    W/L is the only thing that matters.

    Dude, let's make a bet. You're just trolling by throwing our ridiculous numbers that you know aren't attainable.

    You would not, in your right mind, bet on him reaching that yardage.

    But if you are this stupid, please respond and offer up a bet.

    Lol, only if the attacks stop. If no one posted about CJ, I wouldn't post about him. Might be hard to believe but it's true. You guys give me a hard time about it but no one likes to read or hear tons of negative comments about one of their favorite players. It's hard to just sit by and take it especially when you think some of the comments are hyperbole or just flat out wrong. The fact that there's something about him in every single thread adds to it as well.

    Lol CJ gonna rush for about 17 yards the first week...

    Thread : "Haha CJ, all you nutswingers were wrong!"

    It's bound to happen... Hell any week he under performs it could happen...

    One thing you're vastly over expecting is that this fan base "moves on". We still have VY threads and comments for Christ sakes.
