I was doing some research and I thought about it for a long time and here are my thoughts on my above titled post.
I have always loved the running game, more than the passing game, I just always loved the blocking schemes and the pure athleticism of running down the field with a pig skin in your hand, and opposing players trailing behind, and winded, and scoring.
And, I have noticed this amazing stat, as I am sure most of you have, but that 1972 Miami Dolphins team actually had and rode a dual 1,000-yard rushing threat, with both Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris, which of course lead to the league's only perfect season, but I must also honestly ask, has any other team done that? And, if so, I can't find it.
And to think, they both did it in a 14 game season, to me, this is even more amazing and impressive than the 1972 perfect season.
To think, that even in today's game, not many backs can even gain a 1,000 yards (in 16 games), and for a team dominate the line of scrimmage like this, may help explain how a team can create a "perfect-season".
I just found this and added it on edit, I never knew this important stat, still only 6 teams (duos) did it, but it also happened in 2009? Under the radar, I never heard this.
The first 1,000-yard duo consisted of fullback Larry Csonka and halfback Mercury Morris. Csonka and Morris accomplished the feat as members of the Miami Dolphins during their 1972 season, when the team finished undefeated and won the Super Bowl. Morris finished with an even 1,000 yards; he had initially been credited with only 991 yards after the end of the regular season, due to a statician's error that incorrectly removed nine yards from his total.
The second 1,000-yard tandem occurred four years later in 1976, when fullback Franco Harris and halfback Rocky Bleier both surpassed 1,000 yards playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The 3rd - Fullback Kevin Mack and halfback Earnest Byner became the third 1,000-yard duo, accomplishing the feat during the 1985 Cleveland Browns season.
The 4th - Back in 2006, halfback Warrick Dunn and quarterback Michael Vick became the fourth duo with 1,000 rushing yards in the same season. Vick also became the first quarterback to rush for over 1,000 yards in a single season, while Dunn's 1,140 yards are the most by any player in a 1,000-yard duo.
The 5th - Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward of the New York Giants were the fifth duo to accomplish the feat, doing so in 2008.
The 6th - was DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart of the Carolina Panthers are the most recent players to have accomplished the feat, having done so in 2009. In addition to being the sixth 1,000-yard backfield tandem, the two are also the only 1,100-yard rushing duo.
