no.

atleast LT and adrian peterson will pass him.

steelers fought tooth and nails when they prevented jamal lewis from breaking eric dickersons record in a meaningless final season game where the ravens had clinched and the steelers were already eliminated from playoff contention.

we can expect the same in return. the ravens will not give willie the title on their home turf. ben should be able to throw for 400 yards in the final game, and willie should be a fine decoy in that last game.

kinda depends on how LT and Peterson do the next two weeks, but like willie said it really depends on what he does.

he's got a good chance of more than 100 yards against the rams, the ravens will be more difficult, but maybe this will be the time he finally gets 100 against the rats, although I expect the starters to rest most of that game so it might be hard.

At first I was going to say... you gotta be crazy.

But then I finished reading your post... and dangit... you make a lot of sense.

Not unless they give him the ball a few more than 14 times in a game

If he runs for 100+ against the rams and for at least 80 against the Ratbirds, then I think he has a chance.

I don't see LT as a threat. His team has clinched the division and the #3 seed, I see them resting LT some in these next two games.

Peterson however, is a threat. This dude is a threat to break his own single-game rushing record at any time, and if he does that, he will win the rushing title (and the guy is a rookie who missed a few games!).
