I realize some folks are trolling and some folks are purely delusional but for those people that may be coming here for actual analysis of this situation...

 

In the first two weeks Washington accounted for 6 carries, Riddick for 18 and Abdullah for 18.

 

We can realistically expect that Washington takes at least half of the Abdullah carries which leaves him at around 8 - 12 carries a game.  ITT people are stuck on Riddick's past lack of success rushing.  The Lion's line has looked surprisingly better blocking than last year and Riddick isn't going anywhere in the run game where he is averaging 4.6 ypc, the coaches want Riddick to run the ball so that the team isn't one dimensional when he is on the field and to keep opponents honest.  Coaches have raved about Riddick's improvement with vision and patience this off season. 

 

As far as receptions Riddick has 9 on the season and Abdullah has 5.  I think, realistically, we're looking at 2 receptions this week for Washington.

 

Projection for Washington.  8 for 40 rushing, 2 for 15 receiving and a rushing TD.  I think you're banking on the TD otherwise not startable this week.

This is preposterous.

I think I can say, without hyperbole, that he will be better than Barry Sanders, Jim Brown, Emmit Smith and Eric Dickerson, combined. 

You very well could be right...........better at WHAT becomes the question.
