Yeah, I remember those guys. Of course, I wasn't playing fantasy football then. Just collecting football cards.

There's probably a ton of examples like these, but since I'm a bit of a homer....


1988 Bengals:

James Brooks: 1218 total yards and 14 TD
Ickey Woods: 1265 total yards and 15 TD
Stanley Wilson: 508 total yards and 3 TD


And no, I don't think Rudi AND Perry will be productive backs this year.

All hail Bo! Ah what should've been.

Didn't the 9ers have a pretty good combo in Hearst and what's-his-name....Barlow?

Somebody made a good point in another post. . . that LJ wasn't taking touches from Priest, rather he was taking touches from Green. (No TDs for Green yet). Made good sense to me. Grrrr.

Perry will have a decent year as the #2 RB and the #3 WR. Of course he has fantasy upside (Rudi getting hurt, significantly outperforming Rudi) and fantasy downside (Henry developing quickly, getting injured himself) like everyone .

Ah, the memories...12-4, Number 1 seed in the AFC, Double Overtime win against the Jets where my man Bernie threw for almost 500 yards.....And then "The Drive".

:~( :-P :~( :-P

Friggin' Marty Scottenheimer and his stupid a** prevent defense. The only thing the prevent defense does is prevent you from winning.

To my knowledge, that was the last time two backs for the same team ran for 1,000+ in the same season.
