    Since the historical seasons aren’t really a secret for anyone that wants to look them up, I can agree that this particular season for Simpson was insane. He reaches 2k in 14 games. Dickerson also reaches 2k in 15 games.

    I’ll also let you know that despite the lead Simpson/Davis currently have, some of the other guys will catch up.

    No. NFL was still on 14 game seasons that year. A full 16 was averaged to be a record 2289.

    really we could probably go back in time and change lots of records though. The same will be said going forward as we have 17 games now.

    in regards to rushing it is probably more fair to include extra games since the game favors passing so heavily..

    pass records stand no chance going forward

    Without a doubt. It’s almost stupid the league was recognizing Brady and brees these past couple years for all time TD and yards.

    For RB, it almost gives them some sort of shot to reach Emmitt, although not likely. RB life span is just too short for too many and even if they last til later, their workload typically gets heavily reduced.
    I’ve got hope for Henry, but let’s tackle 10K and EG before talking Emmitt.

    Happened to look this up as well
    Career post season rushing yards
    EG 776
    Henry 670

    With 2 post season games, Henry should easily pass him, may only take 1.
    EG is 15 all time, Henry is 21 currently.
    With a 5 yard run, he’ll pass that fat piece of crap, Bettis.
    Current #1 is Emmitt w/ 1586

    I’ll give the final update because pending the time Henry returns, he may very well still be in the race for season crown this year. he has THAT big a lead currently.

    So after the super unfortunate news today, we all know Henry is going to miss some time. There is a question about how much and with such a lead, the thread may still hold true.
    While I spoke specifically about his quest for back to back 2K seasons and breaking Eric Dickerson's record (and maybe Earl Campbell's team TD record) He will still be very much in the hunt for season rushing title, his 3rd in a row.

    Here are the top 5 after Week 8
    Henry - 937 (288 yard lead)
    Jonathan Taylor - 649 (92.7 ypg)
    Mark Ingram - 615
    Nick Chubb - 584
    Joe Mixon - 572
    Zeke Elliott - 571

    I expect after 8 weeks, Henry will be surpassed. Probably even within 6. If Taylor stays on pace, it will only take 3 and part of the 4th game to surpass Henry.
    I don't see Ingram keeping pace.
    If he returns with 2-3 game left and within about 200 yards, I legit think Henry still has a shot at the rushing title.

    As the injury recovery goes along, we may get more info that it's for sure not gonna happen.

    +500 yards / 6 weeks = 83 yards/gm. That's the -200 yards scenario you mentioned.

    that assumes he'll be back after 6 weeks

    if it's 8 weeks, 500/8 = 63 yards/gm

    meh
