  • what to do you have to say about Chris Johnson falling short of Dickersons record!!!

    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!!

        Hey brother ramfan,
        I see by your age, I too am 50 yrs old and I'm totally stoked that ED is still on top and can't think of a better way of celebrating age 50 with ED holding the record. I remember like it was yesterday that signature straight up running style that made you look in awe as he ran thru defensive line like a gazelle. You are right that there is no substitute for the ABSOLUTE!!!!

          Yep, Dickerson was flat out the most breathtaking, explosive, exciting runner I've ever seen. Watching him run was like watching a wide open passing attack without the passes. He was simply unbelievable. I hope he keeps the record for a long, long time.

            Didn't Dickerson have to do it in less games too?

            Sorry, I'm a younger fan.

              He did it in a 16 game season, but he broke the record in the 15th game.

                I totally agree. ED was one of the few backs that you thought could break it for a TD each time he touched the ball. The power combined with speed was simply awe inspiring. I witnessed him in person many a time at the Big A, I too hope he keeps this record for many many years.

                  Its a record in the NFL that should stick around for a long time, with all the pass happy rules that now apply, you wont see many threatening that record very often. wouldnt be surprised if it holds another 10-15 years. At Least the Rams have something to smile about

                    Chris Johnson is going to break MFaulks total yardage record.
                    by bongo59
                    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.

                    "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!

                    TOP NFL RUSHING LEADERS

                    1. Chris Johnson (TEN) 1,396 yards

                    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.

                    Rams- Larry Johnson
                    by NJ Ramsfan1
                    Chris Mortenson reporting (after speaking with Bernie Miklasz) that the Rams may explore the possibility of getting Larry Johnson if x-rays suggest Steven Jackson would be lost for extended time.
