Saying What Has to be Said

Don't get me wrong, I love CJ2K and all, but this has been in the back of my mind ever since he broke the 2000 yard mark last year:

Johnson, who gained 2,006 yards, was just the sixth to do it and the first since Jamal Lewis in 2003.

None of the other five who got there — O.J. Simpson, Eric Dickerson, Barry Sanders, Terrell Davis, and Lewis — ever did so again. Most, in fact, never were anywhere near as good in the seasons that followed.

None were, except Sanders, who quit too soon while at the top of his game.

I truly hope Chris Johnson breaks the mold, and dominates the running game like none before him. There's no reason he can't, except that whole "being human" thing.
