Setting unreasonable expectations is a major cause for disappointment during the season.
Trivia question--how many backs have ever had 2000 yard rushing seasons?
Love DD's enthusiasm, but the chance of 2000 rushing yards is next to 'nil.
Now a much more reasonable question would be 2000 combined yards. DD was on pace for 1800-1900 combined yards last year absent injuries and not starting. Much more achievable goal. Still don't think it will happen (a) because DD got a lot of receiving yards last year as the check down receiver and hopefully those will go to Bradford, Gaffney, Joppru and Miller more this year, (b) because he will need to go absolutely injury free and (c) because Hollings is likely to get quite a bit more play time.
