Clinton career yards


Recommended Posts

How many yards do you think Clinton Portis will end up with at the pace he is going. Currently he is avg 1482 yards per year and 5930 for his career. I think he has a chance to break the record for rushing yards in a career. If he stays healthy I think he has a chance. GO SKINS !!!!

to give a possible senario, if Portis keeps up the current pace over the next 6 years and then have a significant drop off (gaining about 2/3 of previous production) for the next 5 years he will be near 19720 yds in those 15 years. Clinton can certainly do the job, but he has to stay durable.

The First Four Years:

Clinton Portis has 5930 yds on 1258 carries

Emmitt Smith had 5699 yds on 1262 carries

Walter Payton had 5316 yds on 1179 carries

Barry Sanders had 5674 yds on 1189 carries

Jim Brown had 5055 yds on 964 carries (only had 12 games a year then)

John Riggins had 2875 on 690 carries

Clinton certainly ranks up with any one of them. Barry Sanders is the only one who had a higher average yards per carry and I am sure that we all beleive that he would have mad the record untouchable had he not retired. But I think that CP has a real good shot at the record. Lets just make sure he is a Skin at that point
