    Apologies if this was posted elsewhere.

    Dillon became the 15th person in the history of the league to go over 11,000 rushing yards today. Congratulations Corey and looking forward to 12,000.

    He isn't what he used to be, but still a beast.

    One of the great power/speed running backs ever IMO.

    Unbelievable. A lot of people here have no clue what a great running back he is.

    That video is the definition of one man wrecking crew.

    Of course we got him at the tail end of his career, but he still set our all time season rushing record.

    By the way, If anyone has these videos they should save them.

    Youtube has already deleted the Dillon record one and should be deleting every copywrited sports video.

    Very Nice.Right now.He is Number one in Active Running Backs as far as rushing yardage.With Curtis Martin and Marshall Faulk not playing this year.

    Here are the other 14 Running Backs Corey joined yesterday with 11K yards.
    Just an amazing group, with all in or destined for Canton.

    I think if Corey can stay healthy and play maybe 2 more years as a short yardage back he could get to just between Thurman and Franco Harris at right above 12K yards. Looking at this list I would dare say the only person that had a harder time earning his yards was Barry Sanders.

    RK PLAYER AMT
    1 Emmitt Smith 18,355
    2 Walter Payton 16,726
    3 Barry Sanders 15,269
    4 CURTIS MARTIN 14,101
    5 Jerome Bettis 13,653
    6 Eric Dickerson 13,259
    7 Tony Dorsett 12,739
    8 Jim Brown 12,312
    9 Marcus Allen 12,243
    10 MARSHALL FAULK 12,162
    11 Franco Harris 12,120
    12 Thurman Thomas 12,074
    13 John Riggins 11,352
    14 O.J. Simpson 11,236

    I wonder how badly beaten up his body really is.

    If he could manage a couple 1,000 yard seasons...He'd have a good shot at the HOF. maybe that's what should motivate him now.

    I doubt the pats keep him at his salary next year though. HOpefully he'll keep playing and won't be too insulted at a pay cut.

    Didn't some clown start a thread saying he should be benched (or something almost as dumb) just last week?

    CD is the man!

    The man has certainly fought hard for this recognition. Love having him on our team, even if his 1,000yd days are behind him! Congrats Corey, you're a great running back!
