What is the NFL QB single season rushing record?

Postby kjakubowsk » Fri Nov 17, 2006 12:38 pm

Vick is on pace for over 1,100 yards this season. What's the record? I know he had 902 in 2004. Is that the record?

Not positive this is the record but Randall Cunningham ran for 942 yards in 1990.

Bobby Douglass set the record for most rushing yards in a season by a quarterback when he gained 968 yards in 1972. Beattie Feathers set the record for highest rushing average in a season when he gained 8.44 yards a carry in 1934.

is there some kind of controversy with that? I see conflicting things with the Douglass record sometimes.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

I dont know about Douglass but Feathers is somewhat sceptical.

Looking at the rest of Feathers's career and considering the nascent state of football statistics at the time, the most reasonable conclusion one can draw is that Feathers's record is bogus. He set it in just the third year the NFL kept official statistics, and a statistician's error may have upped Feathers's average. Most likely, the scorekeeper at Wrigley Field, where the Bears played, incorrectly included some of Feathers' kickoff or punt return yards as rushing yards.

Since when has this Vick guy been a QB?

Even if he doesn't this year, Vick is inevitably going to break the record eventually.

I agree. I can see him breaking both records this year or even in the future.
