There are already 12 running backs with 1,000 rushing yards this season, and C.J. Spiller just joined the party this week, capping off the first 1,000-yard season of his career.
While many of them got there before Spiller did, none of them got there on fewer carries.
In fact, Spiller got to 1,000 yards on just 154 carries. The only running back in NFL history to finish with more than 1,000 rushing yards on fewer than 161 carries was Bears running back Beattie Feathers in 1934 in what was also the first 1,000-yard rushing season in NFL history.
Ironic, to say the least.
Considering the theme of the season has been Spiller's incredible production despite criminal underuse, the fact that he reached 1,000 rushing yards on so few carries lends itself to wonder what his season could have been like with a coaching staff that knew how, and how often, to utilize him.
