    Hmm, remaining games:

    @ Oakland (17th)
    vs Jets (30th)
    @ Dallas (6th)
    @ KC (8th)
    vs Baltimore (10th)
    @ Buffalo (31st)
    vs Oakland (17th)
    @ San Diego (3rd)

    I've bracketed rushing D...we've got a mix of top 10 run Ds and low end run Ds. That said, we've already run over KC comprehensively so it'll be an interesting one. If both backs can stay healthy, it's very doable.

    Well, if these two guys can't hit these averages for the rest of the season, then we have serious problems with our offensive line IMO.

    I think they can both get 1000 yds, especially when you take into consideration that while one is wearing down the defense, the other is resting up so he can come in and break off a huge run, which is a lot of the reason Bell has such a high ypc average and so many long runs.

    Of course, if the Raiduhs defense is as battered as reports say they are, Bell could break 1,000 yards this Sunday.

    (Actually, I expect the Raiduhs' defense to be more stubborn than the "experts" are thinking. I think they'll be tough early but hopefully we'll wear them down.)
    I think so too.. but I think we will definatly be attacking their parimeter, because they have some WIDE BODIES in the middle...and sapp is playing well since they went back to the 4-3. Since their LB's aren't anything special, I definatly see us running heavily.. just as the Chiefs should have been doing more of.

But can we expect those type of averages to continue with so fewer carries for the rest of the year? I don't know. I hope he does. I REALLY hope he does. But I'm taking the odds in guessing that it won't sustain.

    ya dude i know this and i do think they'll do it with the dependency the team has on running it shouldn't be to far fetched.

    Anderson is still the starter and getting more carries and I feel he is currently the more reliable of the two. So, I'm picking him to hit 1,000.

    Bell has been great at breaking off one or two long runs each game lately. But you've got to figure he won't always gets those big ones. He is more of the wildcard to me and I figure he could break 1,200 or not even hit 800. But my gut feeling is that he'll come up a bit shy and hit in the 900 range and leave the fans disappointed.

    But then Bell will be pissed at missing 1,000 in the regular season and rip our first playoff opponent a new one.

    Just call me Javalonadamus.
    This was my thinking in My decision as well. I figured that the chance of him averaging 100 yards a game with such few carries is bound to slow down. Considering Anderson gets the bulk of the carries.... I bet on him getting the 1000yrd mark. Unless Bell starts to get more carries per game.. or anderson goes down to injury, thus having the bulk himself, then I would say he's going to have a lot of 60-80 yard games.

    My thoughts exactly Javalonadamus. Mike still doesn't give them equal carries and I don't think that he will. With the passage of the season come the aches, pains, and possible serious enjuries that dull the edge of a break away back.

    I hope T Bell continues to pop the big gainers but I wouldn't place money on it. Unless Mike Anderson is injured, I just can't convince myself that Tatum will break
    1 000 yards.

    I'll predict 1100-1200 for MA and high 800s for Bell.

    Of course it would be lovely to be wrong and see both surpass the 1000 mark.
