Since the Dolphins are going to "Retire Csonka’s No. 39 Jersey, Honor ’72 Perfect Team At Halftime Of Bears Game":

Most Dolphans know that Csonka and Mercury Morris rushed for 1,000 yards in '72, as they became the first tandem from the same team to amass 1,000 yards rushing in the same season. Who was the only other NFL RB tandem to also have accomplish this feat ? And when ?

Yeah, they did, only the year was 1976. Bleier with 1036, Harris with 1128.

http://nflarchives.com/seasons/steelers/1976.htm ok - the article I got this from talked about another tandem - maybe they were the last to do this :confused:

he was what I quoted:

This included a career-high 1,117 yards in the Perfect Season of 1972, when Mercury Morris rushed for 1,000 yards, as they became the first tandem from the same team to amass 1,000 yards rushing in the same season, one of only two to have accomplished the feat in NFL history (_ _and __, _ in _). And the blanks were not Rocky and Franco
:rolleyes:

This included a career-high 1,117 yards in the Perfect Season of 1972, when Mercury Morris rushed for 1,000 yards, as they became the first tandem from the same team to amass 1,000 yards rushing in the same season, one of only two to have accomplished the feat in NFL history (Earnest Byner and Kevin Mack, Cleveland in 1985).
