MICHAEL EISEN: I'd love to see that, but it's unlikely. A team has had two 1,000-yard rushers in a season just six times in NFL history. It's a pretty rare occurrence. The 2008 Giants had one of those duos in Brandon Jacobs (1,089 yards) and Derrick Ward (1,025). But I don't see Wilson and Brown duplicating that feat. I doubt the Giants will be as run-oriented as they were in 2008, when they led the NFL in rushing. The Giants will throw the ball too frequently to have two 1,000-yard rushers. And when they do run it, I think Wilson will get the majority of the carries. He could run for 1,000 yards, but I don't see Brown joining him.
JOHN SCHMEELK: I don't think each guy will get to a thousand, mostly because
DAN SALOMONE: Not when the two combined for 743 the previous season and the Giants haven’t rushed for more than 2,000 yards as a team since 2010. Yes, opportunity and health are both in their favor this time around, but you can’t say two unproven players will do something that has happened only a handful of times in NFL history. Having one would be an accomplishment for the Giants’ rushing attack this season.
