Anyone else find it rather odd that four of the last names end with "son" and all seven have generic-ish last names?

With the move toward more passing-centric offenses, one wonders if, or when, there will ever be another 2,000 yard rusher. I feel it would have to be done by someone with an astronomical YPC since backs just don't get the handoffs they used to. Larry Johnson's 416 carries in a year may be safe forever if current trends continue, but, you never know.
