Could the Baltimore Ravens have two 1,000-yard rushers in 2019?

There are few feats in the NFL more impressive than having two players rush for over 1,000-yards. 5,000-yard passing seasons were once like unicorns, but now we see them seemingly every other year. Having multiple 1,000-yard receivers on a team isn’t news either. But having two 1,000-yard rushers is   special, and the Baltimore Ravens might have a combo to pull off this feat.

 

While it’s expected that Edwards will take another step forward in 2019, it should be perfectly clear that Baltimore wants to run (pun intended) with Mark Ingram as their lead back. Ingram, who just turned 29-years old at the end of December, has the production and experience the Ravens are looking for in a lead-back. It’s a safe bet that he will eclipse his career-high in carries this year.

Between those two running backs, you have a dynamic duo that can topple defenses. But the addition of quarterback Lamar Jackson changes everything.

There has only been one other instance in which a quarterback has rushed for over 1,000-yards: Michael Vick in the 2005 season. We’ve seen few dual-threat quarterbacks as remarkable as Vick since then who could accomplish this feat, but Jackson might just be the guy to do it. Remember, he was on pace to smash Vick’s single-season rushing yards record for a quarterback (albeit on an ungodly amount of carries).

 

 

So lets plan to break the face of teh franchise QB.  Lamar should not be allowed to get anywhere close to 1000 yds.
