Specifically, Johnson wants to rack up 2,500 yards.
He mentioned the number again on Tuesday in an interview with ESPN’s Adam Schefter, whose bus has made its way to Nashville. “Basically just come out here this year, another year, and try to get those 2,500 yards — make all my fantasy owners proud,” Johnson said regarding his goals for 2010.
“Yeah, it’s a lot,” Johnson added. “But it’s possible.”
It requires an average of 156.25 yards per game. Thus, for every game in which Johnson is held to “only” 100 yards, he’d need to make up for the difference by rushing for more than 210 yards in another.
And he has to stay healthy.
And he has to get it all done with a bull’s-eye stitched onto his back. By Johnson himself.
So, yeah, it’s possible that he’ll rush for 2,500 yards. It’s also possible that the Rams will win the Super Bowl. And that the Pirates will win the World Series. And that the Clippers will win the NBA title. And that a really bad NHL team will win the Stanley Cup. And that Toledo will play in a BCS bowl. And that PFT will win a Pulitzer.
