  • Chris Johnson is going to break MFaulks total yardage record.

    It appears as if Faulk's record is in serious trouble. I think TN is going to feature Johnson Sunday. Looks like it could a long day for the Rams run D.

    Isnt always a long day for the rams run d?

    But really, we held the consensus best rusher in the nfl to 63 yards, so its not impossible to hold CJ to under 100. The record stays with the rams.

      Let Vince Young throw for 300 yards. I really don't care that much if the Rams win or lose anymore this season. It might even be better to lose but at least make sure that Rams RB's still hold the single season rushing and yards from scrimmage records at the end of the season.

        AZ held AP to 19 yds and the week before CJ got 150 on the same amount of carries. I dont think the best back in the league is AP any longer by most accounts. I think STL sees him live Sunday at 3:15. SJax is a good one too considering his numbers on a team that challenged offensively.

          Make no mistake, sjax is the best back in the league. There is no longer any doubt after this year.
          Toughness: Have you ever had back spasm? Trying running into LB's with backspasms.
          Production: Second leading rusher in the nfl, on a team on which he is the only impact player.
          Leadership: Consensus leader in the locker room, Acts beyond his age and shows an aura of command on the field.

          Sjax is the best RB in the NFL.

            he is good but TN won games because OF CJ. SJax was done very little in that regard. But he is a talent for sure. I just dont see him in CJ league now. Infact CJ has broken some pretty impressive records already and is in the Jim Brown conversation now with his total yds thru 26 games and total rush yds in the first two seasons. Jim Brown is the only other back to crack 1500 yds in 12 games with a 6.0 yds per carry. CJ also has more TD over 85 yds than any back in history and is getting ready with one more run over 40 to have the complete record to himself.

            He is fun to watch.

              Sure he is fun to watch but he is also not a leader and has been proven to be detrimental to the team at times. Example is when he complained about splitting the time with lendale white, saying he wanted all of the carries. Also a big part of his yards comes from vince youngs double threat of passing and running. Also chris johnson has a solid o-line who has only 1 game were they were not all starting.

              Steven jackson causes no problems within the locker room, and has none of the talent around him like CJ does.

              Dont get me wrong the man is a hell of a good RB and will have a Great career but as of the season he is not ahead of SJAX.

                  If he does, not only will Faulk's record be in jeopardy, so will Dickerson's. Hopefully Spags has a plan.

                    Maybe he can bring in Shane Stant for a play ;)

                      Maybe Johnson could just...not make it through the game?

                        well perhaps the title should be changed to...Chris Johnson had a whiff of the sweet smell of the record..but reality has kicked it out of his hands now.

                            Chris Johnson now has 2,176 Y.F.S

                            Marshall Faulk`s record is 2,486

                            so Johnson would need 311 Y.F.S to beat it in the last 2 games

                            with the rushing record..

                            Johnson has 1,730 yards

                            and of course the record ED holds is 2,105

                            so Johnson would need 376 yards again from the last 2 games.

                            the last 2 games being the Chargers at home on Christmas day and the Seahawks at Qwest field....Seahawks have been bad this year obviously but their Run D is ranked 12th in the NFL and well the Chargers are playing at home and just a good team who will know that to win all they really need to do is contain Johnson.
                            it`s still possible..but i personally dont think so..and the title of the thread certainly looks premature at this point.

                              Double check your math, you're off by 100. Johnson needs 376 yards to break Erick Dickerson's record. He'd need to average 188 yards over the next two games to do that. It's within the realm of possibility, but just barely. I'd place his chances under "Not bloody likely." I think you guys can rest easy about Dickerson's record lasting another year.

                                "Dickerson's going down!" ~ Chris Johnson
                                by dgr828
                                Tennessee Titans RB and NFL leading rusher Chris Johnson has been quoted through sources that, not only will he go over 2,000 yards rushing this year, but he will also break Eric Dickersons' All-Time Rushing (Season) record of 2,105 yards. Eric set the record in 1984 as a member of the Los Angeles Rams. Few have tried to conquer this momentive achievement, Barry Sanders and Jamal Lewis were able to rush over 2,000, but both fell short when it came to chasing down Dickersons NFL record.

                                Chris ("Every Coaches Dream") Johnson has all but guaranteed that he will surpass the former Rams Hall of Fame Running Back this season.
                                The Saint Louis Rams travel to Nashville (December 13) to face the Titans. Chris' "Dream" should be motivation enough for the Rams defense to stop the RUN as well as protect its own longtime hallowed Rams record.

                                Will the Titans Chris Johnson break Eric Dickerson's All-Time (Season) rushing record?

                                As it stands now Johnson has rushed for 1,396 yards with 5 games to go in the 2009 season. It'll be interesting to see if "Every Coaches Dream" holds true to his word or maybe his bark is just biggger than is bite!

                                2,105 is very special and important NFL mark! Only one man can say he's rushed for that many yards in a season. He would also say he had a Damn good Rams offensive line.

                                Hey Chris, KEEP DREAMING!

                                Chasing Dickerson: Chris Johnson Needs 709 Yards In Five Games

                                Chasing Dickerson: Chris Johnson needs 709 yards in five games

                                By MJD

                                For 25 years now, Eric Dickerson has held the NFL's single-season rushing record with the 2,105 rushing yards he racked up in 1984. That record is now in some danger.

                                Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson, with five games to go, has the legendary record in his sights.

                                It's doable. More doable than you think, even.

                                Johnson has averaged 126.9 yards per game on the year, and he'll need to average 141.8 over the last five if he's going to catch Dickerson. The news is better than it appears, though.

                                In the six games started by Kerry Collins, Johnson averaged 99.3 yards per game. In the five games since Vince Young has taken over, he's averaged 160 yards per game. So he doesn't even have to get better to take down Dickerson's record. He's just gotta keep on keepin' on.

                                If you're wondering about the rushing defenses he'll face, they're nothing staggering. He's got the 15th, 28th, 12th, 21st and 18th ranked rushing defenses left on his schedule, giving up an average of 118.8 yards a game. The last five defenses he faced gave up an average of 119.

                                And if it does happen, it will happen way more impressively. Dickerson got 23.7 carries per game. Right now, Johnson is getting 19.7.

                                Things set up pretty well for Johnson, so Dickerson, you might want to start thinking about clearing your schedule on January 3rd so you can attend Chris Johnson's record-breaking ceremony. Don't worry, though. Your status as the most awkward sideline reporter of all-time will always remain safe.

                                We may have lost Marshall Faulks season combined yardage record to CJ but at least as a proud Rams fan we still own the record set by Eric Dickerson!! Wish I could have seen him smoking his cigar as CJ can up short!!

                                BY JIM THOMAS
                                ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
                                12/12/2009

                                Steven Jackson and Chris Johnson have mutual friends and bumped into each other a couple of times last offseason.

                                "We actually were supposed to get together and work out this offseason," Jackson said.

                                But Johnson is from Florida and Jackson's hometown is Las Vegas. They couldn't make the geography work.

                                "We just couldn't match any dates up to be able to train together," Jackson said.

                                Even minus those joint workouts, things have worked out pretty well for both running backs. Sore back and all, Jackson leads the NFC and is second in the NFL with 1,232 yards rushing. Johnson leads the AFC and the NFL with 1,509 yards rushing.

                                So Sunday in Nashville, it'll be the league's No. 1 and No. 2 ground gainers going head to head when Jackson's Rams meet Johnson's Tennessee Titans.

                                "I think there's a sense of pride," Jackson said. "But Chris is having an unbelievable year. He's having a year I can only dream to have one day."

                                Johnson is on pace to become the sixth running back in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards in a season. He has averaged 126 yards a game so far; if he averages 149 yards over the final four games, he'll equal the NFL's single-season rushing record of 2,105 yards, set by Eric Dickerson of the Los Angeles Rams in 1984.

                                It will be up to the 28th-ranked Rams run defense to make sure Johnson doesn't run wild on them at LP Field. For most Rams defenders maybe all of them Johnson will be the fastest back they've ever faced.

                                "No question," defensive tackle Clifton Ryan said. "It's in the books, for life, that he ran a 4.23, whatever it was."

                                (Johnson ran the 40 in a sizzling 4.24 seconds at the NFL scouting combine.)

                                "The guy's fast straight ahead," Ryan continued. "He's fast laterally. He's got great vision. A patient runner. He doesn't fumble the ball much. He's up there in that upper-echelon class with Steven Jackson, Adrian Peterson and himself those are the top three backs in the league. Each of them has their own great dimensions that they bring to the game."

                                Obviously, speed is the X factor with Johnson. Any time Johnson breaks the line of scrimmage, he's a threat to go the distance. Before this season, no one in NFL history had more than three 85-yard touchdown runs in a career. Johnson already has three this season, with scoring runs of 91, 89 and 85 yards.

                                "He's here for a minute, and he's gone the next," Tennessee quarterback Vince Young told St. Louis reporters. "That's just a God-given talent. Some guys either have it, or some guys don't. Obviously, you see that he has it."

                                The Rams...
