Chris Johnson Goes for Six Consecutive 1,000-Yard Seasons

Posted by Gary Glenn on December 26, 2013 – 3:06 pm

_DSC4453Titans running back Chris Johnson has rushed for 950 yards through the first 15 games of 2013. With 50 more rushing yards, he will reach the 1,000-yard mark for the sixth consecutive season—every season since entering the NFL in 2008.

Johnson’s streak would tie him for fifth place in NFL history to begin a career. The only previous players to rush for at least 1,000 yards in each of their first six seasons are Barry Sanders (10 seasons), Curtis Martin (10), LaDainian Tomlinson (eight), Eric Dickerson (seven) and Corey Dillon (six).

Most consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons to begin a career, NFL history:

10 – Barry Sanders (1989-98)
10 – Curtis Martin (1995-04)
8 – LaDainian Tomlinson (2001-08)
7 – Eric Dickerson (1983-89)
6 – Corey Dillon (1997-02)
5 – Chris Johnson (2008-12) – active, needs 50 more rushing yards
5 – Eddie George (1996-00)
5 – Tony Dorsett (1977-81)

    I hope he doesnt get it. I know im being selfish or what not but if he gets it there is the reason why to front office might keep him around. He hasnt done much since that one good year. We need to rebuild and that is to be done with out him, Loker and Britt. Other than that lets go out there and beat the texans just because I cant stand The Texans

    It would be a positive thing for Titans fans and organization it he does get the yards, even if they don’t keep him around for next year. I do feel that we need better coaching /play calling and a dependable/experienced quarterback to deliver, which would take some pressure off the running game. Go Titans
