Former Northern Iowa running back David Johnson has been pretty impressive in the NFL and now I want to know what you think about him as a dual threat running back?
We all remember the Marshall Faulk’s, Thurman Thomas’ and LT’s but David Johnson could finish this year with a very rare record.
Johnson rushed for 157 yards and caught three passes for 28 yards during Arizona’s 33-21 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night. The second-year running back now has 457 rushing yards and 238 receiving yards after five games in 2016, putting him on pace for 1,462 rushing yards and 762 receiving yards.
Only two players in NFL history have ever produced a single season with at least 1,400 rushing yards and 700 receiving yards.
In 2003, LaDainian Tomlinson produced 1,645 rushing yards and 725 receiving yards for the San Diego Chargers. Three years later, Steven Jackson gave the St. Louis Rams 1,528 rushing yards and 806 receiving yards.
So here is my question, are we looking at the next coming of Marshall Faulk? His teammate sure thinks so….
I told y’all last year David Johnson is the New Marshall Faulk….
