    Running back by committee before running back committees. That was a spectacular year for the rushing game, my God.

    It's safe to say that LT is a rare back.

    That's absolutely mind blowing. We are so lucky to have witnessed the last 9 years. And this should show all of the ppl who think a thousand yard rusher is guaranteed via the draft... YOU ARE WRONG! If Chris Johnsons were easy to find there would be one on every team.
    We are guaranteed nothing. And we certainly aren't guaranteed the next LT. This SUX

    Those were dark, dark times. I'm not sure how we lived through it.

    Good thing we don't rely on the run game to win games these days. :yes:

    I wonder what the passing yards timeline would look like.

    whether LT stays or leaves he's no longer the great back he used to be, so for next year I think a rookie RB would do just as good or even better than the 2010 version of LT

    As amazing as those numbers are, I'd love to see the same stats for the passing game also. Not to mention during those bad bad bad years we were always playing from behind. So I'm sure that the stats will favor the passing game.

    Not to be a buzz kill or anything. :popcorn:

    Wow. The Chargers have only had 9 1000 yard rushers.

    We saw the best of them.
