Full Version: Forget the Mariota talk for a minute. Who thinks we could have two 1,000 yard rushers this year?

Hold the Mariota talk for a sec. We've got Murray, Matthews, Polk and Sproles. (Polk seems to be the odd man out). That's a three-headed monster in the backfield. All of them are effective in the passing game as well. What are the chances Chip goes ground-and-pound this year? Could we have two 1,000 yard rushers?

Bonus points if someone can name the last time that happened?

Atlanta with Dunn and ??? had a pair of 1000 yard backs when Vick was there.

The Eagles do not have a good running game. They were mediocre last year running the ball and since then have dumped their best back and will soon be getting rid of their best guard. Peters is declining from year to year. They are unable to run the ball inside and no longer have a back who can run the ball outside. I'm predicting another mediocre season on the ground for the Eagles.

it would be fun to see how the defense responds to a fake to Murray, followed by either a quick toss or a pitch to Matthews.

Wasn't the other back Jamal Anderson?
