Question Poll: who will gain more yards rushing?

I'm betting a texan will post more yards this year than reggie. It's not that i believe any of our backs are better than bush but rather that our scheeming and blocking will be better and that we will play from behind less often.

Do you think a single Texan will get more yards than RB? Or, that all of our rushing yard combined will get more?

While I certainly wouldn't mind it, I think Bush is quite a specimen and will rack up some great numbers on a losing team (ala Barry Sanders).

If I was a betting man, I'd have to go with Bush, just based on his upside and potential. Dude is a walking highlight reel, and is capable of breaking out on any given play, IMO.

When carr gets it together and i trust he will.... He will pass for about 3500yards and run for about 3 to 4 hundred which would give him about almost 4000 total yards... he has nearly done it before..

I think that 2-3 SINGLE Texans will get more yards than Bush.

Yeah, I wish that was an option for the poll. I feel confident that our RBs as a group will produce more yards running and receiving than Bush. I think our offense overall will have more yards than the Saints too. All four of our running backs will be more successful than Bush for a faction of the price.

Interesting....

Of course I hope it's true! It would either mean that Bush is a possible bust, or our running game is dominating. The latter would be cause for celebration.
