Did get them all, but if not for Alfred Morris would not have got Joe Morris. So a little luck was involved.

Curt Warner retired in 1990. The Seattle player in 1994 is Chris Warren.

No, CURT Warner played in the early eighties and was "replaced" by Chris Warren who after a couple seasons got traded to Dallas to back up Emmitt. That's about when Ahman Green got drafted followed by Shaun Alexander.

Updated, but Bell's career high so far is only 1361.

Judging by his suspensions, Bell has been high for most of his career.

William Andrews is by far the most obscure person on the list. He's a year or two before I started watching football but I have no idea who the heck he is. I can't remember a Falcons back before Gerald Riggs. I guess I have my jet punk homework assignment.

Not even a big football fan, but I'm annoyed at myself for missing Michael Turner. I was at NIU the same time as him. Though I don't think I ever met him personally, everybody knew who "Turner the Burner" was, even those of us who didn't care about Huskie football.
