Great White Hype

Written by Mr. Pink on Monday, November 29th, 2010 at 11:10 am

Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis went for 131 on the ground yesterday bringing his season total to 905 yards rushing.  With 5 games still left in the year Hillis could do something that hasnt been done in a long long long time in the NFL…..a white running back rushing for 1000 yards in a season.  So that brings me to the trivia question of the decade.  Without using ur high powered google machines can any one you out there name the last WHITE running back to rush for 1000 yards in a season in the NFL?

    I only know this because I’ve been a Patriots fan since I was 8 years old. I would say its Craig James sometime in the mid 80′s (1985-1986?). I know he was a thousand yard rusher because I still have his Topps (1000 Yard Club) Football Card.

    Who can forget the Steve Grogan and Tony Eason days? I can because they were tough tough years to be a young Patriots Fan. Not to mention the beat down at the hands of the Bears in the Super Bowl.

    John Riggins or Jim Taylor
