I’d just retire and not play anymore if I didn’t feel like I was still capable of being a 2,000-yard back. I know I have the ability”

I don't care how many yards CJ gets as long as the TEAM gets around 6,000 yards. That would get us to around 10th in the league. The defense should do the rest. Oh, and score more points than the other guys...:)

if he's talking about 2000 all purpose yards thats realistic.

Cj is going to have at least 1200 yards this year :)  pencil in ivory for a tough 900 and we have a banner year running the ball. 

Geno throws a nice deep ball.. a lot of which were dropped early on so he started getting tentative and stopped having confidence. ..as usual PFF can suck it. let the sheeple flock to their statistics..

@Monty So I take it you're predicting Ivory will have a terrible season since their numbers (based on yards after contact and broken tackles) suggest he will do well?


By the way, yards after contact and broken tackles are factual information, no subjectivity involved there.


What Johnson did last season is a matter of fact.  However, the good news is that it doesn't mean he can't do better this year.  After all, Tomlinson's numbers in these areas (and indeed simple numbers like ypc) were terrible but he responded to a reduced role and proved to be a good pick-up.

@Monty sheeple would blindly follow some non-empirical evidence.  sheeple don't follow critical analysis.  PFF does a lot of work.  you discounting them for literally no reason except that you disagree kinda makes you seem like a sheep.
