As I've already pointed out, Brown wouldn't be the single-season yardage leader if he had played 16-game seasons because that would be O.J. Simpson who average 143.1 yards per game in 1973 when he rushed for 2003 yards which is superior to Brown's 133.1 yards per game in 1963 when he rushed for 1863 yards. Nor would Brown be the career yardage leader. If Brown had played 16 games in all of he nine seasons, he would have played a total of 144 games. If you multiply 144 times his career yards-per-game of 104.3, you end up with 15019 yards for his career which would have landed him fourth on the all-time list behind Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton and Barry Sanders. Either you don't know you facts or you're not very good at math. You decide.

But....Brown didn't play long enought to be the all time leading rusher even if he'd had 16 game seasons.

You must have missed that.

Jim Brown averaged 5.2 yards a carry, speaking of math if he'd carried the ball as many times as any of the top 10 backs he's gaining more yardage, love math :D

Bottom line jazz is that Brown was the greatest ever. Give him the same amount of carries as Emitt he's the leading all time rusher. Average per carry is always the key, always!

Falcons + 5.5
Saints = 6.0
Ravens + 2
Niners = 6

I've done the homework, all those plays have tons of reasons/stats/trends backing the play, so I am on the right side.


Betting is a gamble. Enjoy it for the entertainment value it gives you.

You start searching during the Monday night game for the best $$$$ plays the following Sunday. It's a process of elimanation, you're looking for the 3-5 best plays. I won 1000 last night on the Saints (can prove it by copy paste if I need to) it was an easy play using a basic fundamental.....good team back at home coming off a loss laying a small number (3).

Next week I've already seen that situation again....Carolina at home vs a weak Jets team. Now I don't know the line yet so...? Another one is the Colts who haven't lost two in a row in two years at home vs a bad bad Houston team.

Right now teams looking for playoff postioning are solid plays because you're getting 100% effort. If you can find those teams playing teams with no playoffs....possible play.

To sit there and watch it play out just as you knew it would while winning some $$$$$$, pretty cool~~~~~~

But you didn't say he would be the leader if he had played longer, you only said he would be the leader if he had played 16-game seasons, which is not true. I suggest you think before you post Dixon.

I agree with you that he's the greatest ever, not that either of our opinions matter. Yards per carry is important but it must be tempered with the length of a player's career. Had Brown played as long as Emmitt did, his average would have no doubt declined in his later years. Among runner backs with at least 1000 carries, Jamaal Charles is the NFL's all-time leader at 5.6 yards per carry, but this number will surely drop as his career winds down. Bo Jackson averaged 5.4 yards per carry but he only had 515 carries during his entire career.

I have a bad habit of assuming things are obvious, I assumed it was understood ....all things being equal....Brown is the all time leading rusher. Yes, will be careful with that.

Give Brown nine 16 game seasons and he would only needed to play a few more years to be the all time leading rusher, he was still young when he retired. Give Brown that monster line and a fullback (Brown was the fullback) like Emmitt had and it probably could have done it back then.

Yes, please be careful and then we can avoid the confusion. Words do have meaning.

This also assumes that Brown would have remained healthy. All those extra games would have take a toll on him, and who knows how long he would have lasted in a day and age when doctors couldn't do for Gale Sayers what they did for Adrian Peterson.

Once again....all things being equal.....which means Brown plays as long as Emmitt. We can't talk....what if he gets hurt....that can be said about every athlete. Keep in mind Brown was bigger/stronger vs his level of oppostion than Emmitt was, so it's safe to say he could have played just as long. D linemen weren't nearly as big/strong in the 60's and neither were backers.

Brown average over 100 yards a game for his career, that is amazing.

While here....

Just how great was Gale Sayers? We won't find his name on any all time list because he didn't play long enought. Yet in his short career he was so totally amazing nobody cares about his place in statsvile. To this day only Barry Sanders rivalled him with the....did I just see that?

Sayers is still the greatest long distance runner ever because he also returned kicks.

Again, I was just going by your original comment which didn't have all these qualifiers in it:

Think before you post.

He's the youngest person ever inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. Sandy Koufax had a similar baseball career. They were both stars that burned very, very bright but only for a short time.

When I deal with guys who really understand this stuff like you do, I get lazy with trying to pin point things, thinking ....he knows. I can see you hang on words so I'll be really careful to make things real clear for you...not trying to be a smart ass...ok? I did think it was very obvious I was talking about ...all things being equal. And it's also pretty obvious a 6-2 230 pound back vs 1960's defenses is far more awe inspiring than Emmitts situation. Hell, we'd see him 4/5 yards down the field before seeing a tackler.

i don't think anyone in the Hall of Fame in any sport got there playing as few a games as Gale Sayers did, no haven't looked into it, just a thought.
