    Jim Plunkett, Steve Grogan, Andy Johnson, and Curtis Martin.

    My guess for lowest would be Marion Butts.

    I am going to guess that Lawerence Maroney might be 1) and/or 2)

    and I would say Nance or Cunningham for 3) and/or 4)


    my second thought might be Faulk for one of them.

    Seriusly i got this off the top of my head i didn't look it up. I almost put Don Calhoun down instead of cunningham. :eek: I shocked myself.

    I didn't notice that the ansews were at the bottom of the thread starter until i submited it my answer.

    So you are saying that was right? I would have thought Tony Collins might be in there rather than Sam Bam.

    No correct answers yet, some partial credit.
    NOTE 1-4 are RUNNING BACKS ONLY. Grogan is the leader, but 1-4 only include RBs.
    The bonus includes all positions.

    Grogan wrong because QBs not included.
    Calhoun in fact is correct as #4. I actually had Faulk because he was higher when I sorted, but they were both 4.1. Calhoun was 4.1 and change Faulk is 4.0979.
    Maroney is correct as best with 300+ carries.
    Still missing best with 200+ and 600+ as well as the bonus quesiton.

    Okay, no quarterbacks, then I'll go with Horace Ivory, Andy Johnson, Don Calhoun and Curtis Martin.

    For the lowest average I'll stick with Marion big fat Butts over (under?) Reggie "one yard" Dupard.

    200...Sammy Morris
    300...Laurence Maroney
    600...Corey Dillon
    755...Was supposed to be Kevin Faulk until I rechecked and Calhoun edged him out.
    would have been basically the last 4 RBs we have had are the guys with the highest averages in team history.

    The lowest rushing average of all PLAYERS with 75 carries.....Tom Brady. Primary due to his vast experience with the Victory Formation.

    Some interesting numbers

    YPA -- Player (attempts/yards)
    5.1 --- Jim Plunkett (159/817)
    4.9 --- Steve Grogan (445/2176)
    4.2 --- Carl Garrett (537/2235)
    4.2 --- Craig James (585/2469)
    4.2 --- Corey Dillon (753/3180)
    4.1 --- Horace Ivory (329/1336)
    4.1 --- Andy Johnson (491/2017)
    4.1 --- Kevin Faulk (777/3170)
    4.1 --- Don Calhoun (820/3391)
    4.0 --- Curtis Martin (958/3799)
    4.0 --- Jim Nance (1323/5323)
    3.9 --- Mosi Tatupu (612/2415) - I'm a little surprised at the total # of carries being that high
    3.9 --- Tony Collins (1191/4647)
    3.9 --- Sam Cunningham (1385/5453)
    3.7 --- Mack Herron (353/1298) - I know most of his yards were on S/T but I thought he ran more than this
    3.6 --- John Stephens (891/3249)
    3.5 --- Leonard Russell (689/2437)
    3.1 --- Reggie Dupard (186/571)
    2.9 --- Marion Butts (243/703) - he was actually good with the Chargers, wasn't he?
    2.0 --- Drew Bledsoe (270/553)
    1.9 --- Tom Brady (276/533) - it's all those 3rd & 1 QB sneaks!
