    The Seachickens have no other offensive weapons, they have no choice other than to hand it off to Alexander.

    We could have had Alexander, it was one of our 1st round picks traded for Galloway that allowed the Hawks to get Alexander. He's a great back and the only record that really matters is the one that no one will catch, the all time rushing record.

    so what. Records were made to be broken. Hows Alexander coming along on that all time rushing record. The only one RBs care about.

    Edgerrin James seems to be working on that one. 3rd fastest to 9000 yards. I'm not saying he's going to break it, but he has a shot.

    Emmitt's best records are Most All-Time Rushing Yards and Most All-Time Rushing TDs.. and I think those will be safe for a very long time..

    You're right, James does have a shot at it. It will come down to durability. I can easily see him reaching 1600 yards this season and no less than 1300 yards the next 3 years (barring injury of course). That will give him just over 13,200 yards with 10 years of NFL experience and he will be 30 years old. He will also be just short of Emmitt's 10 year run, Emmitt had over 13,900 yards in his first 10 years. EJ will still need over 5000 yards and will be on the wrong side of 30. Look at Curtis Martin and the season he had last year and the season he is having this year. It's a proven fact that after 30 RBs start to encounter lots of injury problems.

    I don't see EJ doing it, but it certainly isn't out of the realm of possibilities.

    I think there are too many records and this is one of them. Most Td in 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, and etc years. Keep record for 1 year and career is the most important.

    You know when you face the likes of Cardinals, 49ers, and the Rams every year, you will get that many TD

    (17 TD's against 49er's, Cardinals, Rams(twice), and the texans)
