Jones-Drew was asked Tuesday if he believed he could catch Emmitt Smith for the NFL's all-time rushing record.
Maurice Jones-Drew wants a new contract. The Jags want him to honor his current deal. Who'll win this standoff? More ...
"Yeah, I think it's doable," Jones-Drew told KDSP-FM in Denver (via SportsRadioInterviews.com). "I definitely think it's doable."
After that, Jones-Drew set about explaining why he'd probably need a great deal of help to achieve the feat.
(Jerry Jones waves his hand frantically ...)
"Don't get me wrong: he was the reason they won, but he had a lot of guys around him as well."
Basic math tells us Jones-Drew has a considerable challenge ahead of him. After winning the NFL rushing title last season, Pocket Hercules now has accumulated 6,854 rushing yards across six seasons. Through Smith's first six seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, he piled up 8,956 yards. Smith finished his Hall of Fame career with 18,355 yards, leaving Jones-Drew 11,501 yards in the hole.
