MJD is angling for a big contract from Jacksonville, so naturally he took to a radio station in Denver to pump up his bona fides. On the topic of Emmitt Smith’s seemingly insubmersible rushing record, MJD had this to say.
I think itâ€™s doable. I definitely think itâ€™s doable.
So what if he is already more than 2,000 yards off of Emmitt’s pace? Who cares that he’s essentially gained three yards for every four gained by the NFL’s all-time rushing leader through six seasons? And whose says he can’t stay healthy and effective enough to average 1277 yards over the next 9 years? If MJD says something is doable, it’s doable, damn it.
Of course he’s not delusional. MJD knows that Emmitt had a pretty cushy setup in Dallas.
Emmitt Smith was in a different situation than a lot of us, though. I mean, he had a Hall of Fame receiver, Hall of Fame quarterback, Hall of Fame offensive line, Hall of Fame fullback. Whoever put that team together did a heck of a job, and it just showed.
Jesus. Shahid Khan needs to pay him, if for no other reason than to get him to stop talking for a while.
