Did you know...
The Chicago Bears are the only current franchise in the NFL to have a franchise rushing leader that has gained more yards than the franchise passing leader.
Sid Luckman- 14,686
Walter Payton- 16,727
Next are the Lions. Barry Sanders' final rushing total is within a few hundred yards of Bobby Layne's franchise passing total.
Bobby Layne- 15,710
Barry Sanders- 15,269
After that, there are only 2 more franchises who have a rusher that is barely within 50% of the franchise's top passer. Those teams are Dallas and Cleveland.
Troy Aikman- 32.942
Emmitt Smith- 17,162
Brian Sipe- 23,713
Jim Brown- 12,312
Other than those 4 teams, no other team has a RB who has gained even half of the yards that the franchise's top QB has gained.
I suppose these are the minimally fascinating things I find when I have a team that's not currently represented in the playoffs.
